Well, I thought this was. I mean, there’s five days left, and I need to make an address to the reader, sort of like what everyone else is doing. I’ll skip over the point of this blog, more or less because it’s covered under the About tab. However, I will go ahead and give my greetings and salutations to whoever is reading this, whether it’s family, a friend at home, or a friend also going abroad.
Sure, I’ll follow the curriculum that is the backbone of this blog, but I’m hoping to also add a bit of my own thoughts and humor. Maybe even add a cooking page, just for kicks (because I’m most certainly going to burn something at one point or another). Oh, and of those who are reading this that are on the trip, please (please) ignore the other blog under my account. That is purely for my own whims and whatever, but I’d like to keep multiple blogs under one account. It’s easier for me that way.
Tangent: I went and saw Yanni ( Yiànnis Hrysomàllis) Live a few nights ago with my cousin. If you don’t know who he is, or the relevancy of him to this post, here:
Yanni is a Greek self-taught pianist, keyboardist, and composer.Yanni has since performed live in concert before in excess of two million people in more than 20 countries around the world. He has accumulated more than 35 platinum and gold albums globally, with sales totaling over 20 million copies (Wikipedia).
He’s from Kalamata, Greece, and is quite the looker for his age. Here’s one of the songs he played:
This video is from 2004, but it’s the same song. Oh, and if you happen to be wondering who the amazing violinist is, his name is Samvel Yervinyan (basically the best violinist in the world).
Here’s a newer clip:
I’m not a very funny or witty person, so I think I’ll stop here.
