Me on the scooterThis is a report on my Japanese experience (”keiken” in Japanese, which sounds awfully similar to the Dutch word for “looking”).

First impressions …

The Japanese language completely confounded me for a while. It is only due to the (subsidized) lessons that I have at work that I am very slowly beginning to actually open my mouth in shops etc. Rarely have I been so unable to voice my thoughts in the local language. It’s very strange.
