Bears in Protest

April 4, 2005

I stated in an earlier blog post that there was more to the building that I work in than ordinary office buildings. Why just last week, Mariah Carey gave a free outdoor concert to select fans that had purchased her new album (double taxation?) in the atrium of the complex.

When I commute to work in the morning, I enter through one of the back entrances, so when I went to lunch I was in for a surprise. There was a gathering of bears all struck in the same pose arching around the building in some kind of protest. I was able to snap some shots before the bears started chasing me.

Some of the pack took shelter from the rain

Turns out the bears were there as part of the Deutschland in Japan festivities. One bear for each nation in the United Nations.
