いまや全国的に有名な日光の天然氷を作っている「四代目徳次郎」が実父。 １２年前から氷づくりを継いでいるが、『良い氷を作る』ためには『良い森づくり』をしなければならないと考え、森林の整備に着手したところ、日光にある２０数種類のカエデの木からメープルシロップが採れそうだと知る。 糖分３％の樹液を２０分の１まで煮詰めて新たな森の恵みを再発掘でき、さらに子どもたちに向けても、これまでカナダでないとできなかった体験が日光でできるようになった。 森の整備から、新たな観光、レジャー、学び、文化の継承につながる好循環が見えてきた。

Poster for PKN Xalapa Vol. 7
The next PechaKucha Night in Xalapa (Vol. 7) is just a few days away, happening this Thursday (August 18) at Giovanni Pizzeria. As the poster suggests, it's like sweet ice cream for the brain.
PKN Posters: Bemidji Vol. 16
What makes Bemidji so great? Well, for starters, this poster designed by artist/graphic designer Cody Bartz. PKN Bemidji, Minnesota will be holding their Volume 16 on February 21st and will feature presentation topics such as ice-fishing, world travel, and marathons to name a few. Personally, we're curious to uncover the mysteries of ice-fishing. To see more great posters from PechaKucha Nights all over the world, check out our Tumblr blog.
Ice Cream Bells Are Ringing
Just last week in Chicago (at PKN Chicago Vol. 25), Michael and Diane Jackson gave a presentation on their 20 years of marriage. Little did Diane know that Michael had an extraordinary surprise in store for her: After waiting 20 years, Michael was finally able to give me my surprise wedding gift. In 1993 he had secretly booked and paid for a Mr. Whippy ice-cream van to be our getaway vehicle to take us to our honeymoon suite. We stood with our assembled guests outside Stanley House and waited. Sadly Mr. Whippy did not show. Michael has been harboring a sense of loss and regret ever since. Last night, following our PechaKucha presentation about the saga of our 20 years together, I hear that familiar sickly sound of ice-cream bells. Parked outside Martyrs was the vehicle of my dreams, complete with the customary beer cans (Boddingtons of course) tied behind. Please note Chicago had a major snow storm yesterday which makes this act of love even more unbelievable. We served ice-creams to everyone who attended PK and then set off into the night, bells ringing, cans clanking to our home in Rogers Park. I still can't believe my crazy husband. What's more, the owners keep the vehicles in storage over the winter and so the ice-cream van is now on my insurance. I am the luckiest girl in the world. Truth be told, upon the arrival of this little ice-cream truck, there wasn't a dry eye in the house. Take a look at Chicago's Vol. 25 event page for more photos of this memorable event.
For our weekend "Presentation of the Day," we hand over the mic to Eszter Sziksz and Nikkila Carroll, who recount their experience at the Ice Hotel in Sweden. Over 100 miles above the Arctic circle, they joined a group of international artists and designers, who worked in pairs or groups to design rooms for the hotel, which consisted entirely of ice.
Extreme Ice Fishing
What's not extreme about freezing temperatures and hours of focus on a little red bobber? In today's Presentation of the Day, "Extreme Ice Fishing" from PKN Bemidji Vol. 16, John Eggers makes a pretty convincing case for the idea that ice fishing really ought to be considered an extreme sport. In a very humorous telling, John gives us the inside angle on the gear, technology, and gruff, rugged, manly demeanor necessary to endure this cold, unforgiving lifestyle.
#3 in the SKY
This was good! And it all started with a magnificent concerto of the delicious trio: Limona Jam: Ammalia Podlaszewska + Daniele Agretti + Alex Osipenko. Taste it in a short glimpse! This was an allover dream come true evening! We had local musicians performing together for the first time, we landed on a spectacular venue on a roof top of our city, we reached the magic 10 presentations and our audience keeps on growing! Right after the sunset, we had Rubén Robledo Ibáñez showing us his reportage photos from the Gaza Stripe where he spent several weeks among befriended Palestinians. Geographically not afar, the next was Athina Stefani from Greece who involved us in her story about Ludwig Wittgenstein's house, told by the mean her own drawings authored throughout the nights before Friday: And then it happened: the Italian-Swedish team of laughter monsters (Sara Ferraioli + Carl Ydergård) stretched our cheeks to a high level of pain with their rythmic story on how Daniele, who happened to be the guitarrist at the same evening, made his career instead of playing football. A series of 20 photomontages made us laugh through the whole 400 seconds: This was not all! Sara couldn't stop just at one presentation.. An involving walk through the streets of Naples followed, filled with street art: After a smooth beer brake extended through the stunning views over Weimar: we took off again. This time Rika Tarigan from Indonesia engaged us with her designs of modern applications of the batik textile technique. Filtered through the cultural background of Indonesian fariy tales we were covered up with 20 splendid and very colorful images: Right after some colder recollections of the last winter arrived to us from Sankt Petersburg through Lithuania in the person of the delightful pianist Simona Zajancauskaite. The first musician to present images on PKN in Weimar! Stark congratulations for the courage! We were all touched by the transcontinental message instilled in the 20 slides under the title tandem, nothing is black and white anymore. The message pointing towards a possible European-Russian friendship was carried on by the presentation by Iman Hegazy (Egipt) and Tatiana Reshetnikova - the Urban Sketchers Weimar. In a series of speedy sketches we discovered some beautiful locations from Russia, Egypt and Weimar. Thank you and good luck with engaging more sketchers in your group! The reportages from cold Russia made a perfect ground for the next story to come - this time by the PKN city-organizer himself. Gall Podlaszewski uncovered his winterly "cultural production": the Weimar Winter Bad - a series of Monday baths in the river of Ilm taking place under winter atmospheric conditions. The involvement of some other participants proved that the idea of swimming in the winter is not Bad at all! Here, the end of first season (photo by Simona Zajancauskaite who got up on a cold morning very early just to take this photo. What a brave daughter!): Right afterwards we had another swap of functions - now Tereza Spindlerova - the second city-organizer came out of her mixxer pult and took over the mic to tell us the development of her Spanish blog - a poetic journey supported by 20 almost abstract urban images: The splendid series of 10 presentations was closed, or rather opened up by the enigmatic Mr. Grüter, who did it just as we like - decided to present just at the same evening, bringing his presentation on a usb stick. Here Mr. Grüter seizes the audience with his magic pencil: Thank you all for the great fun we had that night!!

PKN Poster Spotlight: Ulaanbaatar
PechaKucha Night Ulaanbaatar was not playing around this week as they take the top spot in our Poster Spotlight! This colorful and chaotic poster brings the same fun energy that can be found during the events hosted there, and features a wild collage of eyes, birds, ice cream and almost every shape and color imaginable; we love it! While Ulaanbaatar is still rather new to the PK family, they take no shortcuts in providing a worthwhile event that looks like an absolute blast. With a poster like this, imagine how great their Vol. 4 event will be on July 6th, just a few days away! Want to see more posters? Go check out our Tumblr and Instagram, you won't be disappointed!
