The year 2011.

From Vienna south early January with Christina, Spain, Morocco, Mauritania, Mali and the Festival sur le Niger; legendary, so to set the standard for the remainder of the year, a mesmerizing nine-inch nail and by it everything else will be measured.

Then to San Francisco, Eugene and Eastern Oregon. Finally into Mexico, Baja California, Copper Canyon, then south to Puerto Vallarta, then east to Guadalajara, Morelia and Mexico City. Fly into Miami, then Vienna, then Morocco, then back to Mexico with my boys, 2.5 months in Mexico with Daniel and David, Vera Cruz to Cancun, to Belize, to Chiapas, to Acapulco, 10,000km with my boys, jungles, volcanos, beaches and Maya sites. Back to Vienna, then back in Mexico, miss my boys. Guatemala we leave on the 31st of Dec.
