what time is it now…

January 27, 2007

ah… it’s 7:32 am local time here in stockholm… too early for anything…
got back from korea last saturday to new york… then only 4 days later, i’m here… no wonder my sense of time is all screwed up… when i got to korea, i could sleep only 4 hours for the first 3 days which wasn’t too bad… then back in new york, i thought i didn’t have any jet lag but then on the second day, couldn’t sleep for something like 28 hours… then passed out… was so freaked out to see how dark it was when i woke up… thinking i missed my flight to paris…
then flew to paris the following night… got there around noon… stopped by security because of my giant cello case… had 9-hour lay over in paris so went to musee pompidou… was a bit disappointing since one of their modern art floors was closed… had yves klein special… too bad i couldn’t understand french since the most interesting thing was the documentary clips on his painting using female nudes… all i could understand was ceci bon…! then there were some nice video installations… bruce nauman, joseph cornell, marcell duchamp, man ray and so on…
then went back to charles de gaulle to catch my flight to stockholm… de gaulle is such a weird airport… it felt almost as big as heathrow without any real reason… then i had to go through security twice just because there was no bathroom in near the gate… then got into stockholm late at night…
then one of my favorite things… eating breakfast in foreign countries… especially there are two things i love about having breakfast in europe… which is plain yogurt and soft boiled eggs… and i absolutely loved eating soft boiled eggs with caviar paste for breakfast… salty, sweet, soft… yum… if it wasn’t too difficult to bring liquid/gel stuff on planes, i’d buy 3 tubes of it… oh, well…
then last night, played with lindha with two other fabulous string players, nina de heney and anna lindhal…was even better that i expected… got goosebumps at one point which is a great thing… played at this cool looking venue called kulturehuset in the middle of downtown and the whole thing went really well… and coming from me, that’s a lot… heh heh heh…
today i’ll explore the city a bit… go into the old town area… so far the city looks and feels great… and not too cold which is… you know, a bit scary…

  1. Be glad you’re there. It’s horribly cold here right now!

  2. Yes, the climate changes are alarming! It was very scary when it was 72 dgrees in New York the other day. The cherry blossoms bloomed in New York and Japan. I hope they still bloom in the Springtime.
