Hello from Japan, my dear friends! It's super frigid here, because there is no central heating in this house and I fear my hands are going to freeze off while I'm typing. Thankfully I'm warming up in my grandma's amazing kotatsu.

Anyhow!

Mister Donut's pon-de-ring. It has mochi/tapioca powder in the mixture to make the donut super chewy and delicious.

Clearly not food, but we went to the aquarium in Osaka and got to see a penguin march outside. Super adorable and made 14 hours on the plane worth it.

Capibara at the aquarium! Capibara are the world's largest rats. It was the size of a normal pig.
