feb 21 ~ mantova ~ part 2

arriving very early into mantova, not being able to lock up our luggage, we carried it around the whole city with us... cobble stone roads and heavy backpack = not good combination

opera house

first time i've seen a harpsichord in real functioning form... i asked to play on it... although i made a fool out of myself, i had fun... it is quite different playing on it compared to the piano... the key spacings are different, therefore the reach i'm comfortable with wasnt there... and.. the touch too... the weight u put in your fingers to hit the keys is also different... i realize why we play 'bach' the way we do now :P
me... exhausted.. but smiling
