    Before ride car cat banban

    February 17, 2018 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

    Staring at the flashing c:/< prompt on a monochromatic screen attached to what would now appear to be a small microwave, the thought that there had to be an easier way never crossed my mind. It was 87 and the small microwave in question was a cutting edge "portable" computer. The painfully tedious process of getting a game to load up and run properly, seemed neither tedious or painful at the time but rather futuristic and sleek. The fact that the game required 17 separate disks to work just seemed like a fine idea.
    Flash forward 30 some odd years and if by chance I have some issue where I can't triangulate my exact location on the planet while simultaneously listening to music and filming a high definition videos all on my playing card size pocket computer something must be wrong. Some day in the not so distant future even having to pull a device from your pocket to accomplish these tasks will seem inefficient. Flash forward another 30 years and having pockets will even seem to be a bother.
    Today we have pockets and pocket computers and today we have technology that can allow anyone on the planet to communicate in there native language (except for some dialects from Botswana) it is a truly incredible innovation that gets glossed over as normal. By waving our phone over foreign curves and slashes into focus comes familiar letters and numbers. However the side effect that this process unveils is where the true magic lies.
    No matter what ails you if for only a moment a smile and laugh can take it all away. This is where the google translate app truly shines. While I can't confirm that everything we wave our magic wand over is incorrect, I can confirm that it is hilarious. Ingredients on food packaging become bizarre country music lyrics, warning signs turn into quiet optimism. The mystery and questions unanswered lead to more deep pondering. Could riding my bike as a bachelor in the park lead to a box lunch? And why would the park be broadcasting this information?
    Comedy gold is around every corner and the mystery of foreign texts goes deeper than we could ever imagine. Thank you google translate and welcome to Tokyo.

    Beach at

    March 7, 2016 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 57 °F

    Super crowded beach here, I think half of Ho Chi Minh city was there. Nice warm waves to play in, and they probably weren't warm for the same reason that paddling pools are lol. Ate seafood on the beach, so good!

    Mui Ne, PhanThiet

    March 7, 2016 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 57 °F

    Mui Ne is a nice coastal town of resorts owned by Russians, and overpriced (by Vietnamese standards) seafood. There was one nice swimming beach though, with surfboard rental. I think without surfing I a weekend there would be enough for me. Along the coast road there were some large areas of sand dunes, which was interesting.

    Phan Thiet is a typical Vietnamese coastal city.

    Japanische Toiletten

    October 26, 2016 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Für Japaner ist das ein sehr wichtiges Thema.
    Es gibt an jeder Toilette (Western Style) an der Seite eine Art Fernbedienung für die Toilette. Die Funktionen sind zahlreich: angefangen vom beheizten Klodeckel (sehr angenehm) über Toiletten-Spül-Geräusche (wahlweise als Sound oder als echte, minimale Spülung sobald man sich auf den Klodeckel setzt) bis hin zum Duftspray oder Bidet-Spülung. Der Spülkasten wird anschießend bei einigen Modellen direkt durch einen Wasserhahn wieder befüllt. Ein optischer Hingucker.
    Öffentliche Toiletten (meist Japanese Style) sind zum Hinhocken, wobei man die Sitzrichtung unbedingt beachten sollte. Hin und wieder findet sich auch hier ein Krückstockhalter, ein Buzzer zum Hilfe rufen im Notfall oder auch eine Kindersitz-Halterung an der Wand (wohlgemerkt in der Toilettenkabine). Laut Beschilderung soll man das darin sitzende Kind nie aus den Augen lassen...

    Düstere Geschichte, schöne Orte

    June 28, 2018 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Gemeint sind die beiden Städte Hiroshima und Nagasaki, auf die zum Ende des 2. Weltkrieges jeweils eine Atombombe geworfen wurde.
    Generell für beide Orte gilt, dass es heute zwei wirklich schöne, lebhafte und sehr freundliche Orte sind. Hinzu kommt eine wunderschöne Landschaft um die Städte herum, sowie natürlich, wie in ganz Japan, Tempel, Tempel, Tempel...
    Die jeweiligen Besuche an den Gedänkstätten und Museen waren allerdings extrem bedrückend. Wenn man noch einmal so vor Augen geführt bekommt, welche verheerende Folgen diese Explosionen hatten, kann man sich nur fragen wieso es heute noch Machthaber gibt, die es für eine gute Idee halten, damit rum zu spielen.

    August 14, 2015 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    ביפן נוטים להאמין שאם תצליח לקפל 1000 עגורים מנייר - תבריא מכל מחלה.

    בגיל שנתיים סאדאקו סאסאקי ניצלה מהפצצת האטום על הירושימה. 10 שנים מאוחר יותר היא חלתה בלוקמיה כתוצאה מחשיפה לקרינה.

    סאדאקו החליטה לקחת על עצמה את משימת קיפול העגורים. היא הספיקה לקפל רק 644 לפני שנפטרה.

    חבריה לכיתה נורא התרגשו ולאחר מותה השלימו עבורה את משימת קיפול העגורים ואספו כסף כדי לבנות לה אנדרטה.

    היום, ילדים מכל העולם מקפלים עגורים ושולחים אותם להירושימה.

    אנדרטת השלום של הילדים היא המקום הכי יפה בפארק.
