Post from Hawaii Asia 1079

This will be my new post . I’ve been in Hawaii with Katie for a week now and it has brought up some questions about the last time I was in Hawaii. I’m here for the Friends of Dard Hunter annual conference.

Foreign Concessions

Foreign Concessions

That was in 1979. I was returning from a five week backpacking tour in Asia with my two brothers and we stopped in Honolulu on the way back from Osaka/Tokyo.

San Francisco

Hong Kong

PR China:  Canton, Shanghai, Nanking, Beijing, Canton(Kwangzhou)

Hong Kong again






This is a reprise of Madrid 1974.  This time it’s the Honolulu zoo and not the Moscow or  Canton zoo.  It’s not about pandas this time, it’s the Sumatran tigers and tortoises.

Katie has been sent looking for a box for the keepsakes (see Vienna, Madrid 1974)  We don’t have any.  We use everything here.  see Wien/ Schachtl.  Sustainability is the KEY.

  2. We finally have a website for our video project and would like to share it with you. Since we didn’t new another way to do so, we again used the comment function here. Hopefully you don’t mind.
    From now on more or less less frequent new content will follow and in the next month hopefully first Videos with our professors will appear.
    If you like to, we can explain you what it’s all about and what the name stands for, you’d just have to contact us via e-mail.
    Anyway we would be glad for some feedback and if you liked it.

    Cheers, Julian Hegemann

  3. Dear Mr. Gast,
    Maybe you remember me from commenting the last time, after you twittered a Video by our Chymiatrie project.
    We just wanted to let you know that the project is running full speed ahead and can now be found under the following domain
    Our tenth video will be published in a few hours and steadily new updates will follow each monday.
    We are cuurently doing a lot of filming and also have in this regard a lot of our professor in our schedule.
    So if you liked the first Video, hopefully you will enjoy all the other videos as well, if not even more!

    Cheers, Julian Hegemann

  4. Dear Mr. Gast,
    Thank you for your kind words. I hope you are still enjoying our updates (after all our first video in english was launched this week!) and if you’d like to you could give us some feedback via email to I would be delighted to hear from you since viewers from overseas are most likely quite unique.

    P.S.: Please excuse the horrible english at some points of the last message, but I was in quite a hurry back then.
