Below are phots of some of the HEARTY and JOYFUL foods that M, M and I ate while in Kochi, Japan, a couple of weeks ago.

Katsukare. After-tennis food -- Japanese version of Indian curry (this one sevred with a crumbed pork cutlet) that is almost but not quite entirely unlike Indian curry (apologies to D Adams) ... good though, in its own special way.

Katsudon (crumbed pork cutlet on rice with egg mixed through it).

Okonomiyaki (sort of a cross between a pizza and a pancake, these with cabbage, cheese, pork, squid, prawns).

Katsuo tataki (regional specialty -- bonito flame-cooked over a straw fire, just to sear the edges).

... and katsuo tataki being cooked.

Little fish (which I didn't eat, but I like the photo ... ooooh ... repeating patterns ... oooh ... few colours ... ooooh ...).

Sui gyoza (pork dumplings, steamed and served in broth; usually fried and eaten with ramen noodles).

Ramen noodles.

Man cooking ramen noodles.

And here is a photo of the food I returned to, in my work cafeteria:

Entirely unlike shepherd's pie. And guaranteed TEPID. Mmmm.

Ah well. As Ned Kelly supposedly said, such is life. And I think our situations are comparable.

And it gets sucher and sucher.

After seeing the TEPID shep. pie, I finally understand the need for double-triple flush action.
