A small crowd was gathering around a display promoting Hokkaido tourism. When I got closer, I could see why. There were two live penguins waddling around on top of a pile of snow. Everyone in the crowd was laughing and enjoying the funny penguins. All of a sudden, one of the penguins fell off the display right at my feet. The crowd gasped. I immediately grabbed the penguin and put him back on the snow. The crowd cheered. When I recounted our trip to Japan when we returned home, this was the first thing I said: "I saved a penguin in Tokyo."
