Amazing, it worked today too! Suddenly social guests twice in a week. Today a really nice Japanese guy who cooked some food he shared with me, browsed my bookshelves, made tea and told me some nice places to see in Japan. He'd been working in a bookstore and I asked for some recommendations of Japanese books. In return I showed him some of my favourite apps. And a couple of articles I have written that happened to be translated to Japanese. One of them was about, among other things, the VAT-rate on almond paste. He read a part of it ("ah... almond paste"). He also works in writing and sent me a link to an article he'd written about a strawberry plantation. It was in Japanese though, so I didn't understand anything. "But it has a lot of pictures." Yes, they were nice.
