wild life




after a week in tokyo, it felt so good to leave the city behind. we had some funny adventures on the way, like sleeping one night in a manga café where teenies and oldies were reading manga cartoons, playing computer games and watching movies all night. we had a little computer room to ourselves, more like a both with a madras on the floor and no ceiling. after that we arrived to fuji-no, were we did a spontaneous trek of about four hours to cross the mountain, where we knew there would be a permaculture center.

one night we slept next to a little shrine, on the top of a hill overlooking this tiny, quiet village. the next night we hid in this very impressive forest, more like a jungle. listening to cicadas all night. being a little bit afraid of wild pigs. cuddling up to find warmth.

trying a skirt in harajuku. the second hand store’s are insane over here. a few floors of heaven. but luckily?, i am often too big for their clothes…


the famous zebra crossing in shibuya. a human flood.

i had my first performance tonight, it was so intense, the audience sat extremely close and the setting was very intimate. the theater is round, so the stage is on half a circle and the audience sit on the other half. and apparently the princess of japan was in the audience! after that i had a delicious bowl of udon with some sake. and a long walk home. goodnight.

i love japan?


since i am hardly done digesting sweden, and before that switzerland, i didn’t even think that much about the fact that i am going to japan this week. and now, i realized it is VERY close. i need to repack my suitcase, already by tonight, since tomorrow i am working again.

what do i need to bring? how’s the weather in japan? were am i going to stay, what am i going to do? (after the performances that is) oyoyoy… i need to get my act together.

this you can miss. being an aunt and a sister and a daughter. well, i still am of course. just wish that i was closer. little gypsie me. i was listening to p1 to compensate. swedish voices in the background does make me feel a little bit closer.

goodbye then. i don’t like to say farewell. and i do it so often. each time it gets a little bit harder. these past few times i often cry at the airport. and feel so lonely and distant when i walk through the gate. practice makes perfect is not always true. goodbye.

and then sweden






which is lovely as usual. little things make me happy. the silence at the airport. drinking tasty water from the tap. walking barefoot in the morning dew with my father. lösgodis in the supermarket. and big things, like family and friends so close all of a sudden. i wish i could stay longer. just to be with you.
