JOIN DOC ON AN INSTANT ADVENTURE
Today it's raining cats and dogs with a nasty cold wind blowing. Luckily, I found a wonderful pink umbrella in my small room, and so I arrived at the meeting with my old friend Jun not totally soaked.
Over a warm bowl of rice and chicken, Jun carefully tried to explain me all the delicate aspects of meeting with Fujifilm. Currently, the final specifications on date and time are still making circles that can hardly be understood by a European mind like mine.
To me, it seems like communications here always have to be accompanied by long discussions - even when the target is pretty clear and already agreed on. At least, that's my impression after many cab rides with Jun, where amazingly long discussions about the route were followed by amazingly short rides.
These "Lost in Translation" experiences made me feel a bit shaky on my Saving Packfilm journey - as I myself was not even totally sure of the exact route or the final target, how would it be possible to have real effective discussions with Fujifilm? Thanks to my experienced "translator" and motivator Jun, and also warmed up by delicious green tea, I soon felt better and in my brain the final strategy slowly started to evolve and get a shape.
When I left the cafe, it was already late, and when I finally arrived at the Fuji Film Square in Midtown, the heavy rain had already started mixing with darkness.
Off to bed for today,
