Heaven help a SQRL that gets in my way.

My biggest takeaway so far when it comes to living in foreign environs is that the greatest thing that you can do for yourself is to go a for a destination-less walk.
Local tourist attractions are great and all, but the real magic lies in the things that the locals might take for granted. Case in point? This picture of a modest squirrel. Why is this artistically touched up photo relevant, you might ask? Because my eldest child was quick to point out that the Land of the Rising Sun exists without any¬†traditional squirrels. That is to say, she hasn’t seen a squirrel since we left america.
Me being the jerk that I am, occasionally I will message her that I have found a squirrel. When she takes the bait I send her this picture, every damn time.
