Well, the concert was well received, and, I sense, overdue.� The participants in the German Marshall Fund conference on migration had experienced 30 days of stimulating lectures, but no artistic stimuli.� That’s where we came in, I suppose.� Anyway, afterwards we went to a wine cellar here in Bellagio, namely Saliniti Genazzini,� and had some brilliant wine that� I really must find when I get home.� The folks from GMF were truly a fun crowd, and very gracious.� They hailed from Berlin, D.C., and New York, and I think the idea was that we would all meet again.� I certainly hope so.

The concert was Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Paganini, John Williams and Jose White, with an encore of “Imagine” by John Lennon.� Everything was chosen by my friend and colleague, Luis Haza, and proved to be very effective.�

� I am torn between staying here and going back to Wien.� I have chosen Wien, I guess because it will save a few bucks, but also I was getting back into Austrian/German culture and getting the language back together.� There is actually no one else that I have to contact, so I guess I’ll chill, go to the museums, and live the dolce vita, oder gemuetliches Leben, for a few days.�
