La música empezó siendo para mí el más divertido de todos los juegos. A los 4 años disfrutaba profundamente las interminables horas que pasaba con mi guitarra, para entonces mucho más grande que yo, frente al reproductor de cassettes, repitiendo y replicando las melodías y los acordes que escuchaba en las canciones de Atahualpa Yupanqui, Facundo Cabral, Mercedes Sosa, Charly García, The Beatles…

It’s already Sunday May 18 here! These days have been full and wonderful and I have much to share.

I’ve tasted lots of new foods (though it’s a bit tough being a wheat-free vegetarian!) and seen more of Hong Kong. The way to get around is by walking, taxi or the metro. There are taxis everywhere!
