Kyoto was the second stop of our Japan trip after Tokyo. The old imperial city with its insane density of shrines, temples, gardens and palaces had to be, we thought, and if we ever come to Japan again, we will go there again. Nevertheless Kyoto with children is not such a simple thing at all.

Natural forests are essential for bats. They offer both varied hunting grounds and old trees with numerous living cavities. Even in small natural forest areas, many species can be found.

Bats are fascinating because they find their way in a world that is almost completely closed to humans – darkness. Their sense of hearing and locating is so fine that they can detect insects only a few millimeters in size during flight. The different bat species differ in the technique they use to hunt prey. The fringed bat, for example, hunts just above the ground for small mosquitoes – gladly near damp areas. The Bechstein’s bat, on the other hand, relies not only on ultrasound but, thanks to its large ears, can hear the crawling sounds of insects on dry leaves – and pick the prey directly from the ground. The long-eared bat, on the other hand, has such high-resolution ultrasonic hearing that it can detect the subtlest of movements, such as the crawling of a beetle. While hovering, they scan the bark of trees or branches for prey and grab the insect as soon as it moves. All in all, bats consume enormous amounts of insects and spiders. In order to become full, a bat must consume a quantity of food in one night, whose weight is about 2.000 mosquitoes.

The most important bat habitat

In Germany, there are more than 20 different species of bats, with some species being widespread throughout the country and others occurring only in certain regions. The different hunting and living habits of the various bats ultimately lead to the fact that most species are found in near-natural forests. Only here they find a colorful mosaic of open and closed areas, and old and young tree stands. Bat experts agree that natural forests in particular are ideal bat habitats. This is because, in addition to the varied hunting grounds, these also offer the tree hollows that are so important for bats as roosts.

Sometimes the world breaks apart at dinner. Just like that, without a loud bang, quite unspectacularly. Tatjana Jung clearly remembers the phone call that interrupted her dinner with her family. To the telephone conversation, which went so matter-of-factly, that they with a friendly "Yes, thank you for calling, until tomorrow then!" ended. Talk again tomorrow, operate quickly, do not wait long. The doctor did not pronounce the word cancer. Nevertheless it seeped into Tatjana Jung’s consciousness. What she did then seemed quite natural to her at the time, but today she shakes her head about it: "I continued eating for a while, then dropped my fork and got up to make a phone call." – with a colleague who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. To whom it was not necessary to explain what fog feels like in the head.

Tatjana Jung is a cheerful person. Freckles, the red hair cut to a pageboy head, laugh lines around the eyes. So this is what a woman looks like who has cancer. Who took up the fight against a deadly disease, knowing by now that she will lose it. Tatjana Jung tells that her hairstyle is not chosen voluntarily. "I used to have thick, long curls. But the hair did not grow back like that after the many chemotherapies."
