summer report

September 14, 2006 00:45


I'm really sorry for the long absence. I was trying to find out what to do during the summer. Two weeks in Frankfurt and a weekend in Romania (last weekend) is everything I enjoyed this summer. Regarding the violin ...I don't like practicing in Summer, it's too hot, I can't play late because I disturb the neighbours etc. etc...

During my last German visit I was in the United States! well, actually, it was the american military base in Hanau, but I was so excited about going shopping there with Curtis (we couldn't enter the base without him, he works for the army as computer scientist) and Erich. Most of the people there don't speak german and you can't pay with euros almost anywhere.
The following weekend my friends came to visit me here in Villach and I took them to Ljubljana and Venice. Curtis is on the right, Erich on the left, YanHong (from China) and the twins (from New Hampshire) in the center. It was an unforgettable weekend :)

In September I made an interesting new friend, Sumimori, a japanese colleage who is spending some months in the Austrian company. He plays the violin and likes specially Mozart and Bach. I got the 2nd, 3, 4, 5 and 6th Mozart string quartets from him, and I must say I'm having a lot of fun with them. I started with the 2nd (violin I) and it's beautiful. Maybe I'll have a chance to play it with some other students at the music school now that the course has started again.

Well, next week it'll be Autumn and I'm terribly happy about it. I wish all of you a great last summer week and a lot of practice!
