Hello Karsten,
I came across your bio and was interested in speaking with you regarding a request for an appearance at an event. I am a special events planner at Six Flags Marine World in Vallejo, California. This year our Physics Day falls on May 6, 2005 and we are looking for ideas to enhance the experience for the students at our park. Do you think you would be interested in speaking about your life as a physicist? Touching on details relating to how your career has grown, what sorts of things you do, where you have travelled and insight on your discoveries. Particle physics should be an area of interest for high school students, especially since you could serve as local role model for the students in the Bay Area interested in Physics as a career.

Please contact me either via email or by phone at 707-556-5235 whether you may be interested in participating in our event or not. I would appreciate feedback!

Thank you!

Lori

Karsten,

As a veteran of Japan life, I can sympathize with your story on many levels. Believe me, it probably wouldn't have gotten much better even if you knew Japanese. Your story reminded me of the time I ran out of cash and couldn't pay a highway toll in Japan (which can be upwards of $50). They had me pull over and go into
the highway toll office for about 3 hours, called my work associate at home, and made him promise to make me pay later. Later I spent about 3 or 4 hours driving and also walking in circles trying to figure out how to access that office without getting on the highway (min $30 toll). Anyway, your story beats mine!
