Edinburgh still felt so familiar, like I had never left. I was happy to hear English all around me but have to admit I missed the German too. Edinburgh is such a great city with so many people from so many places, beautiful old buildings, not half as modern as my area in Oldenburg. Old in a cosy way. Catching sight of Arthur’s Seat and walking around campus and familiar areas, I felt reassured. Pleasant nostalgia.
Meanwhile my jazz/pop choir performed in Acapella Abend (evening) on Fri and Sat nights. Saturday’s performance for all the groups were better because I think people had more energy. There was a group from Berlin. Four young men, one of who finished his Masters here only last Sem. He got to do the solo last semester in our performance. That was by far the most entertaining breathtaking performance. They don´t have a name yet and aren´t on youtube or anything but they will go places! We had Thriller, This Love, Time of the Season, Gummy Bears, Falling Slowly, Ein Abend in Paris, and some Alt Musik (1500s stuff). My choir sang Man in the Mirror, The Way you Look Tonight, Baba Yetu and Dancing Queen.
