I have finally gotten around to uploading pictures from the end of last year (link to my flickr page is in the side menu). So there are some more pictures of Beppu, most notably a bazillion pictures of monkeys (cute!!), as well as some from New Year.
Well, the monkeys are technically Japanese macaques, but to me they are still monkeys. I had to rush to catch my fligth back to Tokyo after seeing the monkeys - I stayed much longer than I should have, but couldn't stop chasing after the little babies and oooo-ing and ahhhh-ing.
