thank you for your mails. I just got back home in Germany safe and tired from a 24h drive. … Everything started in a irish pub in Konstanz while I was watching the soccer match between France and Germany. After I saw that insane violence I just followed my heart and went to Paris with my piano. This was one of my most touching moments in my life and I need to rest and reflect about what happened in this short time. I will responde you as soon as I can, I hope you guys understand
