Born in Stockholm (Sweden), now live in Sapporo (Japan). Hold a Ph.D. in computer science and work with computers during the days, perform magic in a bar during the nights (and weekends, for kids). Also used to teach historical fencing back in Sweden.
I went to eat at Bottom Cafe, which has very good food at surprisingly low prices. They are open until 5 A.M. too, which helps when you have to work late.
The owner, who normally does not work in the bar (he owns several other places too), was there working behind the counter. He also does calligraphy, and he wrote this for me to give to my parents. It is his imagination of a message I should send to my parents. This time, I can even read what it says. A year or so ago, he wrote me something that was his image of me or my personality. It was very difficult to read, even for Japanese people.
