Ronnie 2¢ from London, United Kingdom

I guessed aquarium . . this gives a very strong feeling of being there. Like we have a place in the crowd. Effective shot.

This is great! The ambience from the aquarium is so soothing and peaceful and so cool with the contrasting and figures.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

I was in such a darkened viewing place at Ocean Park, Hong Kong and the pickpocket struck. He only got my sunglasses though. I don't think that would happen in Japan.

@Steve Rice: I think you're right Steve. I'm surprised about Hong Kong though... I lived there as a child, and while Japan seems far safer, I never felt that kind of risk while I was there. Times change I guess...

Twelvebit from Victoria, United States

My son was recently very disappointed --he didn't get picked for the JETS program and so far hasn't found a way to get employment in either Japan or China (he's studying both languages).

@Twelvebit: That's a real shame. I heard that with the economic situation, many schools in Japan are foregoing paying out for foreign English teachers at the moment - could this be related? He's obviously got important skills though and it's just a matter of time until he can find a position in Asia he likes...
