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 got a souvenir from a friend who had apparently been travelling. It was a camera shaped paper box, containing candy. It worked in a quite ingenious way, so you could press a "button" on the camera and the "shutter" would open and you could get some candy. The candy also contained horoscope type messages.
