  1. Amazing orient impact in nordic land. 🙂

    I’m always lean interest in “ancient” and “oriental” civilizations. And I dream go in a future to the “Raising Sun”. I’m a step beyond thinker, but value tradition it’s important to remain. Communication aspects of life it’s a base for understanding human behaviour.

    The different civilization often produced opposition in old days. However, many people know a friendship now.

    For example, like SL, we have the world that can interchange anytime.

    And I love North Europe and Japan in the same way 🙂
