So sweet. I am injured in my schoulder, because of a fall on the ice during skating ( I had luck I wear my icehockeyshoulderprotector otherwise the consequenses of the fall would be worse said the fysiotherapeut)and during a rehearsal of an orchestra I went to home because of the pain. The pain is now diminishing because of treatment by a fysiotherapeut. Soon after I left the rehaersal I got this violincard from someone of the organisation of the orchestra and she hoped I will come back soon. So sweet and a beautiful card.

skating 200km on the icelake Weissensee, Austria in 10.33 hours + Mozartviolins

February 8, 2008 14:41

After a first try on the frozen Weissensee on tuesday the sun was so stark and therefore the ice so bad that I did not finish because of the soft ice on which you could not glide.
But with 1124 mainly Dutch skaters I got a second chance on friday and I reached the finish after 12 rounds of 16,6 km on that lake with 640 others from the 1124 starters that morning. So I started at 7.00 in the dark and finished in the dark at 17.33 after 10.33 hours without much rest (1 minute every round).

The alternative 11-citycross (because it seldom freeze in Holland and we missed our normal 11-citytour of 200 km. Last time it was held in 1997 during a strong winter in the Netherlands)
During the traveling we stopped in Austria and there I found another Mozartviolin with Mozartkugel in it:

Here the backsite of that violin and Salzburger Mozarttafel of milkchocolate I got from the wife of a colleague, who needs 9 hours for skating 200km at the age of 61!! So perhaps I can improve my time while I grow older.

This Mozartviolin with Mozartkugel I bought during an earlier trip to Austria. Or is it a chello?
