"I Hope I’ll Never Get Stuck" Japan, 2011
My car got stuck in the gutter, when I pulled over to make this photo, I mean they have the biggest and deepest gutters in the country side in Japan, at first I couldn’t really deal with the problem at hand, I had a photo to make.
Afterwards I tried to get the car free, but it was really stuck, so I had to get some help. I started walking further down the road and ended up at a little house, about 10 min. later. I knocked on the front door, and got to talk to a really old lady (later I found out that it was the grandma), who didn’t understand anything I said, luckily there where some younger people in the house as well, who did. After I had explained my situation, we jump into their car a drove back to mine.
They had a look, and saw that there was nothing they could do, so they called the Japanese triple A, who would be there in a couple of hours. These lovely people then invited me to join them for dinner while I was waiting. I gladly accepted and had a wonderful couple of hours in their company.
When the triple A guy called, we drove back to my car, got it pulled out. I thanked them for their kindness, we said goodbye and I drove on.
