This is just a quick and rough though in mind. It's stupid that I kept buying the same shoes, scarves, gloves and hats here as in Sweden. Such a waste of resources!
From the rapid travels & settlement experience I had, I should be able to make a podcast about "how to pack your home in a suitcase." It's all about minimise your need: always bring the things that are important. And buy things of good quality, because you will carry the things you like, or if it's pricey. That applies to nearly everything I have now.
I'm having an exclusive-in-quality while little-in-amout life.
I'm trying to figure out a routine to follow. Now I'm involved in two projects (and several last-minute jump-in mission). It's not difficult to keep track of time, but to keep the flow of thinking. It's hard to switch between modes, and at the same time to form up a deep&holistic understanding.
It could happen here that you bumped into a tourist hotspot without being alerted before. The city is big, but not big enough to catch up the speed of expansion. Thus transition here is pretty sharp and steep. I was joking about how the main street close to our studio serves as a distinct boarder between bankers and hipsters. Nothing is smooth and consistent. The change is just right in your face.
I will capture more thinkings from next week, aiming for a short documentation period everyday. It's not a tourist journal anyways.
