Although, there was an annoying encounter where I was accused of speaking poor English because the listener didn't know what "hyperventilate" was, and thought that "asthma attack" and "heart attack" were similar =.=
And the next day, at Shirakawa-go (I must have mispelt it about five times before getting the spelling right!), we had an interesting snowball fight. Of course, I didn't want to take part (I saw the participants and choose to be warm-ish and dry) so I volunteered to hold all the expensive camera gear. Possibly the best way to protect yourself from snowballs.
I have some pretty pictures of the fight, but in the interesting of my safety, look, a snowman!
