Sunset was at 4:52 pm today. Early! Just before, by the river, I took some photos of the leaves changing color, and caught the sun between two buildings.
Note there is no “green dot lens flare” in the sunset river photo. I found a great app to retouch things like that. It removes all sorts of problems from photos. It can even remove hanging wires! Also, if you click the photos you can see them full size.
Mon and Monta have been seriously fighting all day. I’ve never seen anything like that. They always squabble a little, but nothing like this (play the video). Mon was even getting on board Monta’s swing, which she never does, and was fighting with him. I think she was the instigator. When they weren’t fighting they were in a stand-off staring at each other getting ready to fight. I’ve separated them into separate cages for now (for the first time in years!) and they finally seem to have calmed down, each resting their respective nests. It’s very unnerving.
In separate cages to calm down.
I had a meeting with somebody outside of Tokyo Station today. It was the first time I’ve been outside the Marunouchi exit of Tokyo station in a very long time. It’s quite impressive.
We met at a coffee shop at the Shin Marunouchi building. I didn’t bother taking a picture of that. It’s a pretty boring building.
But Tokyo Station’s Marunouchi entrance is a real landmark. It was built in 1914 and has quite and interesting history. You can read more about it here.

Mon was too scared to approach. But here Monta meets Niaja! His expression in the last photo is priceless. I think he was scared of her cameras. He did sit on Niaja’s hand for just a bit though.
