Fastest 105 Yen I ever spent

I stopped at an AM/PM to pick up one of those triangular sushi handheld wrap thingies, and opened it outside while continuing my walk from the Kyoto Imperial Palace back to the hotel. The store happened to be next to a manmade aqueduct so I was walking over the bridge as I was unpeeling the plastic and down swooped a huge black bird, probably a crow, and swiped half the thing out of my hands.

Luckily my hands weren:t scratched or anything. I just lost my meal. I thought someone had gone by on a bike and hit me as a joke or something, but no. I left the rest of the food on the bridge arm (I wasn:t going to eat it) and then walked across the bridge to the Family Mart and picked up another one. This time, I shoved it into my mouth before I exited the store. Lesson Learned.

That is now the 2nd time in 3 months that I:ve had a bird steal my food from my hands.
