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.
Today was the first day in my seven and a half years in Sapporo that I actually went somewhere by tramway. I have ridden the tramway once before, but then it was a two hour party in a tram that started and ended in the same spot, so we actually did not get anywhere then.
Today I got on at one place far from where I wanted to be and rode the tram to a place I wanted to get to. Cheap, fairly nice, fairly slow.
