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.
My father has a small boat, and my Japanese friend wanted to go fishing. We got up really early in the morning and set out to see if we could find some mackerel. We tried for an hour or so, but there seemed to be no fish around, and the number of other boats that were fishing was also very low. They all gave up quickly too, so we set off on a sightseeing tour instead. We went over to the bigger (but still very small) village nearby to see it from the sea, rounded a few small islands, and watched people taking an early morning swim.
