November 16, 2007 at 5:05 AMI made it home again, safe and sound. As usual after coming back from China, I woke up at 3am ready for lunch! Good thing I took today (and tomorrow) off from work to get over the jet-laf. I spent the day getting to know my 16" viola again. Having taken my old 15" with me on international trips many times, I should not be supprised on how much a 1" different makes, but it still does all the same. It took several hours to re-frame my hand and arm to the extra inch of length to get a good intonation.
I'm very happy to be back home again!
