Our departure date, the 25th of September, is getting very close! In the last few weeks Bert and I have enjoyed trying out the film equipment that will be used during the journey, together with Hans; the filmer. Last weekend we spontaneously re-recorded One morning in the Springtime; the song that I recorded with Ygdrassil for the 2002 album ‘Nice days under darkest skies’.
On my youtube channel there’s a nice preview of it.
Meanwhile Henk Helmantel has finished painting the special still life of the cittern, the instrument that we will bring with us to Bhutan. Here are some pictures of the actual cittern (together with some Bhutanese objects and a piece of sheet music of the Road to Bhutan titlesong) and the painting when it was still in progress. Impressive, isn’t it..
