Damn. Well, I'm here in the US until late August when we're scheduled to at long last take a break in Serbia. Just got an email from one of the composer-organizers behind the Summer in Sombor seminar. (Here's their brochure.) She says she'll be hanging out at our favorite place by the canal, Cafe Del Sol, if I'd like to stop by. Boy would I.
This time of year in the career rat-race in the US is when I miss the laid back summer life in Sombor the most. And I am disgustingly proud of the fact that these wonderful composers chose Sombor, of all places in the world, to have their annual seminar at year after year.
While other people in the office have PC screensavers of tropical beaches, my vacation dreams are of Sombor. Call me crazy, but I know where I like to go to relax and have a good time... and it's green and leafy!
