T-Online has been vanquished!

We finally have internet! It was not 10 minutes ago that it finally happened (I type fast when I am happy/excited). It was so funny, when it happened my whole family was going around and hugging each other and we were like “YEAH!”

So, now I’ll show you pictures (the quirky things about this house and some of schön Deutschland) and then get on to the violin stuff.

The infamous facewood! At first, I was slightly bewildered and shocked by it, but then I grew accustomed to it and named it John Chew. Don’t ask. So here is John Chew (never just John or just Chew, always John Chew):

And Linda, (I know that this is a previous name of yours, but I am going to refer to it anyways) I hear that evil violinists like evil toilets? I think that this one will suffice:

Who puts barbed wire in a toilet? That is not just drawn on the seat and lid, there is actually barbed wire in the lid and seat of the toilet. For some reason, that really annoys me. I mean, who does that?

Here’s a photo of me pretending to pick up a barge on the Heidelberg castle. My idea; my brother took the picture:

And here is one of Heidelberg (and some dormant trees):

Alright, after that rant about toilets, I’ll get move on to the subject we are all here for: violin. I played for a lady at the Heidelberg Music School to see if I could play in the orchestra and she put me in the highest orchestra. Practices for me begin in March, so I’ll keep you "posted" on that. We are trying out a violin teacher here. She plays in the Heidelberg Philharmonic and is American. I had a lesson with her on Tuesday. She is pretty good, very different from my home teacher, but good. I have been raised on Suzuki my whole life and she teaches the Galamian method. Tell me anything you know about the Galamian method please.
