Peaking the relaxed ambience over the open window of an Italian cafe in Sydney.

坂の多いシドニーではこうした半地下のお店も見かける。特に旧い建物にそれが多い。

このイタリアン・カフェはいつも賑わい、この日も朝から活気に溢れていたので思わず一枚。窓枠の中は今日も美味しいコーヒーと楽しいお喋りで溢れていた。

Hana and Hanako (Weekly Photo Challenge: Unlikely)

On that day, I met two lovely animals at Yoyogi Park, a large parkland (540,530 square meters) locating in urban area in Tokyo.

One was a french bulldog, called Hana. She is the dog of my friend’s, and I had a good catch-up with them at the park.

Then I met another beautiful yet the unlikely one to see nearby in the park. His name was Hanako. Why he was unusual was because, he was the monkey from Africa banning the export to overseas, and you hence will rarely see the breed in Japan (to be fair for the owner, Hanako came to him before the import was banned).

Hanako was unusual also for its name because Hanako was a name for female in Japan, while, that Hanako was man (not even a boy for his age ;-)).

Anyway, the both Hanas were as relaxed as their owners were and I found of them a kind of lucky to have the big park (with full of green) nearby on their living area.

Here are some photos of them.
