In my schools welcome ceremony we got few very nice performances by very talented students! This was one of them, but unfortunately cannot remember the name of the dance style!

Nice sunset view from the school, overlooking the cities of Beppu and Oita.

My school has its own amphitheater with mountain views. Nice.

While in Finland I read about this fuckers. They are called Asian giant hornets, and they kill up to 40 people a year. I was praying that I wouldn’t have to meet a single one during my exchange. 
Well destiny dropped one in front of me on the third day of being here. Yay. (as you can see, this one was dying. But it was still alive enough I didn’t want my finger any closer.)

Slowly drifting further away from Taipei on board this Cathay A330. Next destination, Fukuoka.

Despite being a relatively standard shot, this image is more than it looks. 
I had a pleasure to be on board Finnairs new A321ER with sharklets. The aircraft is the first one in commercial use, and currently no other airliner has it. This baby was only some 1 week old when I flew it, and this was the 3rd passenger flight performed with it. Quite an excitement for an aviation nerd like me!

Enough of the quiet life! 

As I’ve already settled in in Japan, it’s time to start posting more pictures. It’ll take a while before I get up to date, but I do my best to post frequently!

So sit back and enjoy!

So can we talk about my dinner for a sec?
