Germany tour 2012
On the flight to Philadelphia, I passed around a notebook asking the kids to tell me in less then one sentence what they were feeling. Below are some of the responses. A bit of feat that I will die of fatigue after so much flying. Really tired and sleepy Excited to see all of the great cities Excited to get a wonderful night's sleep on the plane Ecstatic to play in such beautiful places I really hope I didn't forget anything from home! Can't believe this trip is finally happening Excited to try white asparagus and blood oranges in Munich Why is the plan so freaking small? Scared that I'm going to lose something in Europe and scared I'm going to fall asleep during rehearsal. Excited to get to Germany and a bit worried that I'll have to use the bathroom soon. Still not quite believing that I'm actually on this trip and super excited!!! Worried about my instrument stacked and crammed into the compartment but feeling excited and super sleepy. Hoping that my instrument doesn't go completely out of tune, but otherwise very excited about going to Europe! I'm ready to be in Germany already Relaxed and eager to play. I'm hoping the plane ride will be ok and not excruciatingly boring. I'm wondering if Aakash is going to sleep tonight since he's been asleep before we took off from Dallas! I am feeling like a contented sardine I'm excited! Long plane rides are tough, but it will be worth it. I feel as if I am seated next to the bathroom...oh wait. I feel excited, anxious, nervous, adventurous, happy, boisterous....but mostly sleepy. I am thrilled to experience a foreign culture and use my talents there. Watching Ina try to solve the Rubik's Cube is the best - this is in-flight entertainment at its finest. Looking forward to meeting new people and exploring new places! Really excited to be meeting Germans. I speak it! Tired and rady to get off the plane and eat some German food. It is very difficult to sleep on planes. I'm worried about snoring so I can't sleep. I'm so happy to make music with GDYO.
