So probably I will have to move to an approved blog.

you do not like japan?

June 2, 2008

since I decided I will leave japan at the end of the month everyone keeps asking.
I like and I critic Japan but it is an interesting and stimulating place to live in.
The question I asked myself is another:
after a year and a half in a new city, as I see it, there are two options  start settling down or leaving.
In practical terms would mean: stop living in a guest house,  start crucial activities that require 2-3 years involvement like start a gipsy band, a course of calligraphy and improve japanese language.
I feel this is necessary because one cannot live in a temporary state.  This, after the first period of excitement, must evolve.
Being under 30, under 1.8m tall, single, under 70kg, earning under 20,000€ a year and curious I donot see many reason for not going to another place. Because that is what I am doing, not leaving Japan but going to another place which in this case will be Beijing.
