We could have such a fun time...I learned that there are several of these wooden houses in the town mentioned above! Nothing like wood!

Hi again!
I can't believe that coincidence. I have been in that house!!
Last year I went to Poland and stayed in Zakopane one week, and obviously I visited that place. In fact Poland have been one of my favorites travel and I want to come back some day in the Tatry mountains (Dracula’s novel happened there! In Carpats). Wow that’s really strange. How did you find it?
I don’t know how to do it, but if you want I can send you fotos of Zakopane and the mountains. I made really lovely excursions in the mountains.
Best regards!

P.D.: Yes, I play the oboe since I was 7 years old (now I'm 18). But I not very good. Just the normal level to play in a orquestra.

(I send that message before, but I think I didn’t do it well.)

Hi Genava...oooh, you've been to Poland and seen this amazing Villa?! It looks so amazing...I would LOVE to visit it (...and live in it :O)...). The reason why I found it was because of Stanisława Witkiewicza. As far as I remember I saw a photo of him and wanted to learn who he was...

You've played the obo for many years! Beautiful instrument. In mind the obo also makes me think of Jewish klezmer music...
