Angelika Wienert: THE TASTE OF GREEN

"Another piece..."

"You`ll be a frog in your next life," my son says. Then, he croaks.

I don`t care about the future. Here and now – the special taste of matcha cheese cake. Matcha – the fine, powdered green tea, which is used for the tea ceremony! Our Japanese guide tells us what we will do tomorrow and leaves us.

Around the corner
a moss-covered path
leads to the Buddha
