my best friend in japan

Another interruption of Vancouver posts... I just sent this pic from the iMac to my phone so I thought I'd post it first. :)

This was my favourite moment in Japan - when I got to meet and hug an iguana. <3

He was wearing a little leather jacket, sweater and a little fur collar, sitting quietly in a bicycle basket while his owner, a kindly looking old gentleman chatted with his friends at the Osaka castle. I only wanted a picture of him but his master plucked him unceremoniously off his basket and put him right into my arms. He was lovely to hold. I think he even looked like he was smiling. It was spring and rather chilly. Iguanas like to stay warm so I guess he was happy being hugged too. :)
