Neulich waren wir zum Mittagessen in einem gemütlichen Cafe
The other day we went for lunch at a nice and cozy Cafe
"Hi daddy, nice sofa they got here!"
"And that nice smell, makes me really hungry"
"So, what do you say, time to eat?"
"Hi mom, that sure looks delicious"
"Is that piece for me?"
"Yes, that one, right there"
"Hey, what are you doing?"
"Hey mom, thats not nice, give me my food, come on now..!"
After nearly 20 years in big Tokyo I was feeling burned out in my not-so-successful "career" in the service industry, knocking on several ceilings....so after a chance discovery of cheap old farmhouses we set out towards the countryside - but still close enough for my wife to further pursue her working live, commuting by Shinkansen while I would take care of the house and kids and build my own little cafe at home...
Our first bump came when we realized that the bank wasn't willing to give a loan for an old rundown house on some worthless property in the "Hinterland". So, we changed plans and will be building a new house. We already bought the plot last year, with about 400 square meters size, and I have started the vegetable garden beforehand, next project will be the garden house.
