A musicians’ meeting…


Having booked my bus ticket to Sao Paulo for 4th January, I still had two more days in Rio. Martin, the Danish guitar player (and a lot more than that…) had suggested a musicians’ meeting in the park – but after having spent half a day with him and Diana under non-stop rain, I wasn’t so optimistic about it. We called it “cemetery weather” – not least because we visited one of the most impressive cemeteries I’ve ever seen… 

And then, on my last day in Rio, the sun came out! All of a sudden Rio was a beautiful city once again. And people were smiling more.

Diana and I met Martin and his friends at the park. Two long-haired, serene-looking guys, and a girl. On yoga mats, or other mats. Talking about a new system to explain music with the four (five…) elements. As I constantly wanted to do my own thing, I realised there is really some fire in me…

Luciana invited us for tea and cookies at her place, and we accepted. A very interesting discussion about the upcoming rainbow gathering emerged. I’m very tempted to go – not least because Martin is going – but I’m also not sure. I guess time will show… We ended up singing around a circle once again. I had to leave her home early – very reluctantly, but I had to get ready for Sao Paulo…   



About Vanidio

I was born in Athens, Greece, and left at the not-so-tender age of 27 to go to London for a master's degree - or, rather, to go experience the city. I worked there for a while, and after four years I decided to move back to Athens, and got a really boring job with a decent (more than decent) salary. In December 2011 I took a year off work, and travelled to Latin America, Europe, Greece and the Middle East. When I came back, I spent quite a bit of time trying to fit in and organise my "normal" life - or decide that I don't really want a "normal" life. At that time, travelling was more important to me than almost anything else... And then things changed a bit, as I got an offer from a foreign company to organise tours for foreigners in Athens. Dream coming true? Yes! We've done a few tours so far, and hopefully more are coming... let's see! And then things changed even more, as I met a nice, handsome foreigner through one of these tours. And we are now living together, and planning our next trips together :) Life is strange, isn't it!
