I just returned recently from my second trip to Budapest, Hungary, where I was performing with Jonathan Stout's Campus Five.  I loved being there and playing for the swing dancers, some of whom were listening as well.  I have made some friends there, and I find the people to be warm, friendly and thoughtful.  On this trip I also had the opportunity to sell a few of my new recording with Mr. Stout's blessing, so I was able to spread a little of my music to Europe.  Travel is such a wonderful thing, you can learn so much and take in so much history.  It was a great trip, I hope to return again someday...and of course it's always great to return home.
