We had a great welcome in Sapporo, including this poster. Thanks everybody, you made us having a fantastic time in Sapporo!

Dinner time, first original Onigiri in Japan for me after 2 years. Great talks, our host family had two doughters, 3 and 5 years, sleeping at that time.

Thueringer Bratwurst, of course.

Desk filled with my things, we even received a nice paper introducing the names of the host family!

After my back issues last year I perform daily gymnastics. The children joined and made the gym quite interesting this time!

Red Hat Tokyo office: the collegues at the reception did not change to English when I approached them in Japanese.

Really great to meet GSS and TAM folks there, thanks for taking the time! The visit of the Tokyo office was one of the best things of this travel.
