Hi all,

things have changed, now I'm in Switzerland! New land, new job, new friends... new violin teacher, of course, and new orchestra.
2 Weeks ago I was refused in one of the local orchestras. I was nervous and didn't play well. I felt really bad about that, but it was only a day or two. On the other hand I was accepted in Lenzburg orchestra and I found an appartment in Aarau (the canton's capital and old swiss capital city, really nice place!), I'll move there end of june. Last weekend including monday and tuesday I went back to Austria to pick up my stuff. Now I live in a furnitured 30m2 app. with all my personal furniture, books, washing maschine, winter tires etc. etc. etc. lying on the floor.

I don't really feel like playing or practicing these days, but I know I have to. Rehearsals start in 2 weeks and I hope I get my motivation back. Maybe it's because of this stupid cold I have or because the moving was too exhausting...

Here are some pictures from Z├╝rich and the swiss alps, hope you like them.

I can't spend too much time writting entries or emails in the company. Hopefully I'll get the conexion as soon as I move into the new flat.

Best Regards!

Oh, I absolutely love your photos, especially Titlis. You brought the alps right into my living room! :)
