I am replying to a request from several of my friends and colleagues to report about the yellow bag that I left in Växjö, Sweden when I moved back to Germany 9 years ago. Actually Mia corrected me, it must have been 7 years because I came back to clean out the apartment, but left the bag with her. After my move, the bag went into Mia’s apartment in Liedbergsgatan 25 in Växjö. When she moved to her boyfriend (now husband) Pierre at Liedbergsgatan 49b, the bag went with her. When they moved to their house in Rottne, she brought the bag and stored it in the basement. Today I visited Mia the first time after leaving the bag with her. I am excited to see what I decided 7 years ago what was not worth bringing with me but too valuable to throw away.
