South Germany, November 2011

Some time has passed and i’m still in Germany. What happened?
Since i came back in September to my home country, taking a coach from victoria station carrying only the stuff i had left off all my accumulated personal belongings and started living with my family for a while… time passed quickly and a month was gone soon.

Hanging out at shackspace – the local hackspace where i started teaching graffiti skills to some members and set up an urban art workshop and at the temporary artist residency in my brother’s office nearby i found the perfect little base for planning the next steps.

As travelling needs a budget to keep on moving i started my new events business called YUMEii Events (little pun in japanese: yume=dream / ii=good / yumei=famous) and registered with some german agencies and started working in some jobs… as a stage hand helping to set up light and sound at events like a turkish anniversary party, booths at stuttgart messe fair, a test booth for porsche’s next car show, marlboro merchandise booths in stuttgart’s nightclubs etc.

So, i became something like a roadie now. 😛

Recently i posted a link to a documentary about a the japanese freeter community done by ARTE. I watched it with my brother and we both feel like freeters here in germany.
Just working a bit whenever a job comes in, living a carefree life and dreaming of the next place to visit and doing the same there again. Karōshi (過労死) ? No thank you.
