I think I managed to figure out the mystery of the internet. The plug used for the modem is faulty, so I just solved it by switching them.

Will talk about my day later. Probably. In any case, I ended up wandering around Inokashira Park, trying to kill time. Winter never came to Tokyo, and there are already the first buds of cherry blossom. Or maybe plum. One of the trees that blooms early.

There were also ducks. Lots and lots of ducks. I think everyone would love ducks more if they were rarer. I mean, they're big, fluffy and have complex patterns with subtle sheens of pink and green. One had this very wide, rounded bill that almost made him look like a caricature of a duck.

Ducks are awesome.

I think it's Bill Oddie who says his favourite bird is the duck because for many children, ducks are their first encounter with wildlife.

I think that was the case for me, probably. But I also remember squirrels, not to mention going on long fungi hunts in a nearby forest.
