Photobombed by a deer in Nara, Japan. Photo cedit: Dave Ross

Photobombed by a deer in Nara, Japan.   At least I wasn't bit in the stomach like one of my travel companions. His fault was trying to feed them and pulling away from a greedy one, who would have none of that teasing.

Despite having our blackout shades down, I was awakened a half hour before my typical 6am internal alarm clock thanks to a light show of what the weather observatory puts at more than 10,000 lightning strikes, including 3,000 in a single hour.  This is all courtesy of the last vestiges of Typhoon Marwar.  It was as if a disco was happening outside.  Fortunately the entire light show with some loud thunder claps and rain was all condensed between 5:15am and 8am, so didn't affect my wife's walk to the office or mine to my home office.  Negative consequences came in the form of dragging pollution over Hong Kong and some flooding in a few areas. Marwar is now on its way toward Taiwan.
