Hello World

Hello World,

I was force …. ähm of course it was suggested to me that I write a blog when I stay in Japan.
This blog is mainly for friends and family, but it is open to anyone who is interested about it.
It is also a big experiment of mine, so changes are likely. But I try to write something regularly, at

I hope you can enjoy it.
