The safari ride at Animal Kingdom is actually better than most zoos I've been to. You do get close to the animals. I don't know how they manage it, but it's great. Of course it's a short ride, but not as short as the average Fantasyland one, so - go to it!

Here I be with the bees and roaches and bugs waiting on the next show of A Bug's Life, the interesting (tho our favorite is Mickey's Philharmagic in Magic Kingdom) 4-D short film in which you are sprayed on, and surprised in several ways, and at the end, it feels like bugs are crawling in your seat. Yes, it is fun, I assure you.
Oh, and that's the popcorn box was got. Very nice to go at Christmas, for lots of reasons.
We're planning to take the Disney cruise for our 10th anniversary. Anyone done it?
Sorry for the delay of a couple days, but there was some glitch in blogger.com.

These gumball machines that don't contain gumballs are big biz these days. You can't walk around any public area or store and not find a great herd of these things congregating, offering figures, stickers, cell phone keychains and various collectibles. Most of the characters I don't recognize, but there're still lots of Mickey Mouse, Hello Kitty and etc.

These are ALL over Japan. Hot drinks (the red buttons) and cold drinks (the blue buttons; as with the vertical writing of The Matrix, perhaps the blue and red pills come from these drink machines?).
Always some nice flavored teas - I dig the apple and lemon. I've never been a coffee drinker, tho I like the smell of it. Which is good, since Mayu is a coffeer!

After walking around the printing machine expo, we went across the street to this huge mall, several stories of which is nothing but furniture. Really nice stuff too. Expensive, but imagine being able to choose your own huge slab of various woods for a large table?
Believe me, this is a big place for Japan.

My wife's parents make parts for bookbinding equipment, so when they invited us to go along to the expo of the latest printing equipment, I thought it would be doubly interesting. Also to see what kind of machines are printing our books these days.
This huge building was very near Osaka, which is the airport I always fly into.
