Minimal ado

The opportunity to get steady work done here is just too great and though there are a few other things that I hope to talk about briefly, a full description of Saturday's tour will take too long if I want to include all the photos. Consequently I've set up a Flickr site which has a few of the highlights of the tour (some of which include me looking both slightly awkward and very awkward - enjoy). The titles are working titles and I hope to give some more explanation when possible.

In summary I spent about five hours walking around the stunning temples in the foothills of the Eastern area of Kyoto, close to Gion ending up at the famous Kiyomizu temple - nominated to be one of the new Seven wonders of the world. It is a beautiful setting but if you want to see it in its full glory I've no doubt that the Spring cherry blossom season and Autumn maple seasons are the peak time.

If I have time I'll be back to talk a little bit of food and a little bit of physics, in no particular order.
