Denver has a Butterfly Pavilion. They ship farmed chrysalises from foreign, and when they hatch, the butterflies are released into the greenhouse, where they die. I suppose this is probably how most butterfly pavilions operate, but it did seem a bit like the greenhouse was the pet that was being fed by butterflies.

Ben wishes to star on the blog yet again (spot him here). But first, here is NCAR, his workplace, which seems to be ageing awfully well for a 1960s concrete structure.
And here are Ben and friends at lunch in NCAR's famous cafeteria.

It is far too big for us"

We did a fair bit of templing while on unicorn safari, but weren't lucky enough to spot any more.
Here's ye olde village church.
And although it would be poetic if this was taken inside the same church, unfortunately that church was locked.

It isn't just the Unicorns. Like Werewolves and the moon, British people become insane as soon as they see sunshine. Oblivious to the fact it is still actually rather cold, as soon as that pale yellow watery thing shines in their palid blue sky they switch off the heating and open all the windows. This must surely be a contributing factor to why we are presently not merely working from home, but working from bed. With 'flu. Still, it's not all bad. It is actually truly sunny and warm in Kamakura, and it is surely a good idea to get 'flu every decade or so to keep one's immunity up.
Here's some of that dangerous so called "sunshine".
