11 Nov. 2008

a0065194_1920560.jpg The morning on 10th November was beautiful. All the buildings in the city centre Uppsala were gold. The morning sun light were shimmering the small river that goes into the old part of the town. I am not poet and regret that I am aweful when I want to describe the beauty of the world in english words, it was that beautiful even a illiterate damn english writer like me wanting to say about trees I looked up and streets I have walked in that morning. a0065194_19201820.jpgWe all know that a life is beautiful because there is an end to it. The flowers bloom and show its beautiful colours and shapes only for short period. Crickets make a beautiful chirp which could be heard miles away to let us know the end of summer days and the end of their lives. The world wishes for peace because they suffer from wars. Well, what I wanted to say was nothing serious. The morning sun is beautiful in Sweden because there is no sun up here! This is the only moment when the sky could be visible from the ground and when the sun is showing his little symphathy to the people. a0065194_19212275.jpg By the way, I have received the b-day gift from Chris today. I was quite happy despite of the fact that I am already 3 weeks old for receiving the birthday gift! They are the best waffles and chocolate in the world and there is really no exaggeration. The percel came while I was in Japan so I have informed Carl and Pezh about the percel and told them that they could open my gift and have the waffles inside, yet the postmen, despite of his journey to our place twice for a delivery, was not allowed to give the box to them without my ID! Finally, today, I have picked it up at the Tabacco near the roundabout. Back in home, removing the first layer of the box was not such a pleasant job. Overall, there should be the waffles of 3 weeks old invaded by bacteria and mold... aww my sweet waffles... Of course I still had a little hope that they survive from all that. If Japan in summer is like a microwave, Sweden in winter should be like a freezer. Oh well, it was as seen on the third pic. Not really that bad but not great for me to eat. (I am really sorry Chris...!!)a0065194_19213479.jpgPerhaps I could sit down on the river bank and feed the ducks. Despite of the catastrophe to the waffles, the Leonidas praline was in tact and was as good as it could even be!! This chocolate is the best in the world and I am proud to announce the rest of the world that even leonidas originated acnes and blemishes are elegant and in fashion. I mean, I love it so much that what happenes afterwards is not in my consideration.

9 November, Uppsala

a0065194_23161239.jpgI borrowed Lumix FX35 from my dad until 7 June 2009. It was not straightforward though as my dad wanted to keep it. I kept mooching from dad for two consecutive nights and he said no (Yes his head is harder than a marble stone!) so it was in the end my arm-twisting strategy (simply taking it in my bag!) which finally made him abandon his hope of keeping it with him. a0065194_23411110.jpgAm I always that bad? no! Of course I used to use my own camera - D70. But it's been years since I lost interest on it because I didn't have money to buy new lenses and the body was too bulky for snapping the photos on the street. Now I feel that, though the compact camera wouldnt make as good fotos as the big ones do, photo-taking became ever easy! It is exciting that I can keep it in my pocket and take a shot whenever I feel like it. So here it is the first few shots from Uppsala. I took these at 13:30. Here, it gets darker at 15:00 and it's completely dark like midnight at 16:00. It is my first winter at such a high latitude (about 61) There probably will be loads of dark photos in the next few months... but well dark photos are intriguing and fun! a0065194_2316402.jpg
The first photo is my apartment. I live on the second floor (the 3rd etage in Japan). The second photo is just about 100meter to the north of my appartment. There usually are not many people on the street...

Courgette

今日の夕ご飯です。グレイアムの友達の畑で取れたらしいです。
今日の午前中は大学院のプロスペクタスのカバー撮影がありました。
その後は会社にいって3時間みっちり働いてきました。一分を惜しみながら駆けずり回って働きました。もうねます。おやすみなさい。

ロンドンとパリでは、亡命したチベット人や支援者たちが北京オリンピックの聖火に対して攻撃していて、結構な騒ぎになったようです。一時は、400人ほどの護衛がランナーの周りにいたとか、パリではバスで運んだとか、もう祭典のお祝いムードはないようで、当局も取り締まりには世論を考慮して注意を払う必要があり、とりあえず過激化することなく終わってほっとしているところではないでしょうか。
私は、結論からいうとオリンピックをボイコットすることは中国と世界の亀裂をさらに深めることになりかねず、東アジアの核武装をさらに早めることになりかねない、そして紛争の可能性を高めるかもしれないとおもうことから、両手を挙げて賛成はできません。しかし現況を判断すると、やはり中国の高慢な思想はボイコットをもってのみ身にしみるのではともおもいます。もちろん、中国の国民がどれだけ私たちのように情報を得ているかという疑問は残り、そのため「沁みる度合い」は把握できないですが・・・。
