My Chili Plant

It's been a while that my chili plants have been growing. Today I donated them a new flower pot as they have grown really big. The small one already shows some buds. I hope the big ones will follow soon.

As temperatures are currently in the 100°F range, I expect them to grow perfectly. Keep looking for updates on my blog site.

Fuer Elise

Today I was in the Haus der Musik in Vienna. The best thing was the Grand Piano standing in the hallway of the museum. Everyone was allowed to play.

I sat down and started playing Fuer Elise. Suddenly a little girl came to the piano and smiled. It didn't take long until several other children were around. They all were listening to me playing. I didn't even dare to look up because I didn't except that much audience. After I finished playing they applauded for me. My girlfriend who was sitting behind me was really proud of me at that moment. It's been a while that my piano playing skills have been honored that much.
