Something totally accordion unrelated

Post by wout » Thu Oct 12, 2017 11:37 pm

So as Ive have mentioned before, I moved to Spain. The reason for that was a dream that I have had since a few years. I say I had because it just became reality today!!! I have my own little hostel in the beautiful old
center of Granada, almost on the mountain!
Still working on the burocratic stuff, but its all going the right way :). So if anyone here visits Granada be sure to drop by with your accordion :b :ch :ch

Looks great. Do you often play accordion on the balcony?

unfortunately I dont play to much lately. I don't have the energy or time for it. But when I do it's so relieving :D and yes I play on the terrace! Or in my garden on the mountain. It's an experience because the sound has all the room to travel with no obstruction anywhere!

Wout,

A beautiful location, for sure. I have visited Spain on many occasions, and have always enjoyed my visits. (except for being stuck for four hours at Barcelona Airport due to technical difficulties)

One of my favourite Spanish Language songs is "Cuando Calienta el Sol", written by Rafael Gaston Perez (a Nicaraguan songwriter) It was made popular in England by Ken Dodd, under the title: "Love Me With All of Your Heart."

Anyway, your neighbours may appreciate it if you were to play a tune with which they are familiar, and this one was very popular in Spain.

Kind Regards,

Stephen.

The rain got here today! Cant say im sad about that it is incredibly dry here and the air feels so nice and dust free! That was my main concern after i arrived here, the temperatures are alright but the air was very dusty! And thanks stephen i will look it up :)

More information:
You can find the place here:
https://www.facebook.com/CuevasColoraaaaaaaas
if you don't have facebook the address is: calle cuevas coloras 23, Granada.
Also you guys can look at the photo's there! Way easier then uploading.
So far my week has been extremely busy with logistics in combination with guests and me not having a proper system yet.
It is all new and I guess I have to find a rythm to manage all this by myself.
But so far it has been a great experience. Next week some musical friends of mine are visiting and hopefully we can record a nice jam to post here :)
