Ironically, I had to eat another flight meal immediately after writing this entry.

The meal provided by the Aeroflot Airline included Russian brown bread. Tasted not bad.

Princess Charlotte and the monkey

Oita-shi published not to change the name of the monkey recently born from Charlotte. It is reported that positive opinion from citizens grew after British Royal Communications commented that they did not concerned.

There are no media reports after the decision of Oita-shi. It is doubtful they had to discuss this matter involving the British authority.
