After living with us for almost one year, Anna has left us to return to Germany and to start studying architecture in Germany from this autumn onwards. She has attended our races in Saiko and Hotaka last year and at one point I had her close to buy Tom’s TREK bike. Virtually on the day before it was sold to david who wanted it as a gift for his father.
We had a nice Sayonara dinner with Stephen and Ryoko some days ago which ended very late in he morning at the bar in La Tableaux in Daikainyama. The next morning I tried to climb the slopes of Yamanashi with Jerome, Tom and Nishibe–san after only four hours of sleep. Anna made in safely home to her hometown of Braunschweig, also called the pearl at the zone border. Unfortunately her turtle was arrested at London airport and her fate is still unknown. Goodbye Anna, come back any time.
