Murakami on Music

Murakami Cover
Absolutely on Music


A beautiful book, if only judged by its cover.

It is a gift for my mother. I will read it, when she is done. But the idea of a conversation between a writer and a conductor is interesting. Especially when the writer is my favorite Japanese author Haruki Murakami.

So long…


Just because I am not blogging…

… doesn’t mean I am not writing. I am just not telling.

So I won’t tell nobody, that I just cleaned up my music collection a little, department “Soundtracks”. It feels like ordering tangible compact discs, just cooler, because I get all the fancy stuff of having it as digital data on my hard disk. Now they all have covers and correct ID3-tagging.

But how will you know what I did if I didn’t tell you. You won’t. Never mind. Didn’t miss it, eh?

Have a good one!

It takes two to tango

The year has just begun and I am already on the runway, eh, on the road.

Flight is going to the Port. Buenos Aires querido.
Where else to learn Tango if not there?

Abrazos desde el mundo transitorio!

“We are art students”-scam

Last year, our small family of three did a great trip to China. We visited Shanghai (上海) and Beijing (北京). Thanks to our fourth brain (Alex) already with us, we did not fall for the so-called art student scam in Shanghai. There are Tea House- and Peking Duck-scams as well.
Watch this, to see a good and fun explanation on how it works: Tim Ferriss on Chinese Scamming
From Minute 3 on it get’s interesting. Let’s have a laugh, here!

Enjoy your travels and be careful!

JFK, for the fourth time

Welcome to the Big Apple, take the subway to Manhattan, go up to the 86th floor of the Empire State Building, buy cheap in China Town, eat an American style Pizza in Littly Italy, meet for drinks at Times Square, walk Brooklyn, enjoy an all-fat-breakfast with free coffee-refills and see you soon again!
