Japanese delicacies

Vicki and I stopped over in Japan on our way back from Europe. Here are some lovely photos of the wonderful delicacies you can enjoy whilst visiting :D

I must have been hungry as I ate a whole bunch of these fish, eyeballs and all!

Eel spines, apparently they're a chewey snack!?

I also tried authentic Japanese sushi and a few other generic local foods, but I won’t bore you with photos of those.

Heidelberg

After our day trip to Karlsruhe, Vicki and I met up with Vikas Aggarwal (another former labmate of mine) and headed over to Heidelberg. When we arrived, we met up with my old friend Sandra Panienka and Vikas’s friend Stephanie Jungkunz.

The city is incredibly beautiful. High up on the hilltop is the famous Heidelberg Castle which went to visit.
