My Bed

So this is about my bed.

I feel slightly embarrassed about publishing such personal stuff but as it such a principal change from US/Europe type living I suppose it is OK.  The concept of the bedroom i.e. the room where the bed  is in English, or Schlafzimmer, room where you sleep in German, or Chambre a Coucher, room where you lie down in French, does not really exist in Okinawa. There is a room where you do stuff that you transform into a sleeping place when you feel the time is right. When you are done sleeping you stash the sleeping stuff in a wardrobe and the room becomes a room where you do stuff again.

So imagine the next bit as an animation starting with room where you do stuff through the intermediary stages to return to room where you do stuff again.

Room where you do stuff
