Check out this video below. It starts with a single cell that then replicates until it becomes a salamander. Fascinating! I can’t actually tell if this is a real video or CGI. Probably CGI. Anyway, it doesn’t really matter because it’s cool.
Daily Photo – The Old Town of Takayama
On the way up to Shirakawa-go, I stopped for two nights in Takayama. The first night I stayed in a ryokan that was a bit on the outskirts. It was a great time, but I was actually a little tired from all the travel so I just stayed in. The next day I found a normal hotel by the bus station in Takayama so I could spend more time exploring the old town. There are a few of these sorts of places in modern Japan where they have kept one section of the city exactly like it was hundreds of years ago.
