Canon SD870 IS

Just bought a Canon SD870 IS camera. The camera is also called IXUS 860 IS, and in Japan IXY Digital 910IS.

Quite happy with it, though I am not too happy with the price I paid was way too expensive.
Amazon Japan sells it for 34,000 Yen (~ 310$), and we could find it for about 30,000 Yen (~270$). The price I paid in Israel is 1660 NIS (432$)!!!. Amazing, isn’t it.

And they say Japan is expensive.

Tanabata in Israel

We have invited a few Japanese friends and their children to celebrate Tanabata on our roof.

I hope everyone enjoyed it. It was a bit hot, but the children didn’t care. Maybe we should arrange a pool next time.

Photos attached (not of people, as I didn’t ask for their permission to post).

Ainori #342

I am not attempting to compete with Sylvain Bouchard.

It is just that last night we watched Ainori on TV. (Instead of waiting a few days, downloading, and watching on the computer).

We really enjoyed it.
