Hello all! It is springtime in GZ which is not that great. Nope. No blue skies or lambs trotting around in meadows.... Nah-a. Not GZ style. Spring here is a combo of Dutch autumn and eternal fog. Some leaves are on the ground and some trees have pretty bright green leaves. It's drizzling almost all the time and the walls are starting to cry (aka condensate). Best case scenario is that we "only" have a few more weeks of this.

It was nice to practice and I did feel a bit better after class. It was very funny: most of the twisting poses were very hard for me, while all the Asians were wrapped up as pretzels. When we went to the boat pose, in the variation were you grab your feet, I was the only one who could do it. I found it very easy while the rest needed straps to get into the pose a bit. Must be some structural difference in our bodies!
On Friday night I played a gig for about 600 people. It went well and it was fun to do. The whole event was pretty "Chinese" in the sense that it started way too late, went on way too long and was waaay to loud. Luckily I was the first one on. After half an hour I couldn't take it anymore and I went home. My newly added Wechat friends kept uploading pics of the event and I was happy I saw them at home. Again I was pretty tired as I forgot to take my music stand home. It has been returned already ;) I will have to wait for my phone charger until next week because I left it in HuangPu yesterday. Scatterbrained much? We do have a spare at home.

I'll be back at AISG this Friday to do a music sub. Today I am on Chinese but the students just have to work on assignments.
