In the period from 2006 to 2008 I was living far from my family and friends, and, almost on principle, didn’t bring a camera when I travelled. Instead I observed as well as I could and write about what I saw. Finally, in Japan, I broke down and bought a camera, because there were a lot of things that I wanted peopel to see that would have been brutally slow in words to describe. And, as I had feared, it ended my writing of travelogues.
