One of the best ways that I’ve found to combat stress is to play music. So I decided that since there is no steel band in Beijing and I will be here for 4 years, I might as well do something constructive with my time here.
So now I have violin and her name is Cinderella. It was a close call between Antonio and Cinderella but in the end, Cinderella’s sound was much better.
I have had 2 whole lessons so far, and boy, I think it’s harder to learn than Chinese, but I think I am going to love it, maybe just as much as steel pan, but in a different way of course.
