Arrived in Wolfratshausen city, the day before the start of work. I checked the site quickly and asked the local people to make a rough construction plan. Then, I would start full-scale work from the next day.
The stones arrived next day. We roughly arranged them with a heavy machinery. I thought a crane was coming but a large clam shell came instead. There have been many times during my stay that I realized things where commonplace in Japan did not work here. The machine operator was a bulky old man just like a professional wrestler, so I was a little scared of him. I was interviewed by the local newspaper, and I felt like I became a little celebrity.
