guitar

a different end to an evening....

After finishing aliasrob 's lesson, the last one of the evening, went to the local Japanese restaurant (recommended) for a bibimbad... struck conversation with a girl, part of a family having dinner, who had a Nikon D5000 camera -they turned out to be a half-Itailan, half -English family who live in Sabine, north of Rome and sing in a choir specialising in folk music from Italy and Eastern Europe and we had a long conversation about music making , Italy, Venezuela and photography. As they left we found ourselves chatting with a couple at another table who asked about the music conversation they'd overheard. They themselves turned out to be musicians, singer-songwriters and he is or has been a classical guitarist.

I like this neighbourhood...
