Starting March 15th, I will be working as a video producer for a large advertising agency based out of Saarbrücken. It’s really a win / win situation, not only for me, but for us, my family, my friends… Not only will we be able to enjoy living in Germany and Europe, but we’ll also live in a home near my parents and near my friends, they are in my hometown, and just an hour away. Also, I should be able to get back to Shanghai and Asia every once in a while for video jobs, as the agency wants me to keep doing those here. So how do you sum up the experience of over five years of living in China in a blog entry? It’s nearly impossible, unless I make the longest entry ever written by me out of this.

Here are some shots that I took in Parma, while visiting my sister. They are some months old, but I never got around until recently to edit the hell out of them. Parma is a nice little city, these were taken downtown. The food there, especially the bacon and cheese, are uber delicious. My sister got a new dog just two weeks before we arrived… She’s such a cutie, so here are three images from Agatha. Last picture from Europe: Switzerland. We went […]
So I just realized, in order to gain a broader audience, why not add more chinese in future posts? … And with sites like Wikipedia or the Google Language Tools, it’s easier than ever to have keywords or names translated to a foreign language (please write a Wordpress on-site plugin, anyone?)…
Since there are no Matinee-cinemas in Germany it makes kind of sense – you have to adjust to your audience, not the other way around.
