|The steep pedestrian stairway and ramp. It takes all my strength to maintain control on the stroller going down, and going up is quite the workout. You'd have to be a paralympian to control a wheelchair on such a grade!|
|A glimpse of Shibuya's famous intersection, or "scramble crossing." When it's crowded, there are thousands of people crossing at the same time.|
I planned on taking pictures during lunch expressly for this blog post, but Matthias had other plans. He kept Mommy's hands VERY full. We chose to get Chinese food and can I just tell you how hard it is to eat with chopsticks while holding an octopus infant? Even though Cat is Chinese and I am proficient with chopsticks, we ended up asking for forks, because S was nursing and Matthias was wiggling, fussing, finger-painting with my food, and otherwise causing a ruckus. Thankfully, it was past peak lunch time and the restaurant was almost empty. Also, the host, server, and cooks loved babies, and kept distracting Matthias just when he was ready for a major meltdown. Overall, we only lost one sock and splashed one sweater in the fray, so I'd say it was a success!
