hola from mexico city. what a crazy place! i'm stunned again and again everytime i visit this gigantic city. 

the reason me and chris are here is to meet with our mexican distributor gonher. they are putting together our second international drum festival. we have had a great meeting today and went through all the final details that need to be taken care of like logistics, equipment, hotels, exhibition, venue, audio, video, security, and much more. 

all in all, everything is perfefectly on track and we are all very excited to finally do it. july 13 will be the day. all line-up info can be found on as usual.

and now? once again, tomorrow i'll be taking another very long nonstop flight back to germany. at least that is what i hope, considering that another icelandic vulcano, this time it goes by the name of "grimsvoetn", won't cause any problems to the transatlantic air traffic. please spare me!
