Good walk, good friday
It's Good Friday and literally a good one. The sun is shining and we have some good friends visiting us for the weekend. We started the day today with a little hike in the nearby mountains, a little walk about 4 kilometers probably all in all. We thought about extending to another trail but decided to head back home after a few hundred meters because of our plans for the evening, don't want to sleep in the middle of the Opera because of tiredness (or boredom?). Yup you've read it right. Since there weren't much to do on such public holidays it's either we head for a Heavy Metal Rock Concert, the Opera or go to a Concert of Johannes Bach's Passion of Christ (this we did a few years ago already and have no intention of repeating it again). I really am not a heavy metal fan so we only have one more choice left - to go to the Opera for a change since I (and so are our friends Eyna and Thomas) haven't been to one. I really am curious how it would be.. hmmm .. well it's not a heavy piece just Mozart's Die Zauberflotte (The Magic Flute). I've seen the kids performed it once in Kindergarden (their own version abridge version I guess) and V. is very skeptic about it, if what I know about this Opera is really what I will see/hear tonight. Will let you know how it would go.
