In my post On the Road – Honolulu – Cute to Bizarre I showed you an image of a cute animal that I thought was a bear. As reader Stacey Johle pointed out in a comment, this is not the case.
First, let me note that the comment arrived on the old temporary site that I had set up to save Madang – Ples Bilong Mi after I was hacked and could no longer upload images. That site was www.mymadang.wordpress.com. The site is now set as Private so that search engines can’t find it and people can’t land there. To my horror, I was still getting an average of 100 hits a day on that site. It is dead now, at least to anybody but me. I’ll leave it there, but nobody should be able to access it. I just hope that Google gets its act together and realizes soon that it should direct people here instead.
Okay, back to the mysterious animal. First, here is the image from my previous post: (click the link in the first paragraph if you want to read the post)
The animal is a Tanuki. Sorry, I don’t know what they are saying to each other. They look a bit like raccoons, but even cuter. Thanks, Stacey, for solving this puzzle.Tags: honolulu, japanese culture, Stacey Johle, tanuki
