Smooth flights, and we were greeted at the airport by three of the older students, veterans of the program, meeting our flight as it arrived around 3am. waiting in the parking lot for the last of the luggage, we talked about repertoire and I tried a couple of Kurdish words...
We all have SIM cards, and a detailed memo - auditions later today, and rehearsals begin in the late afternoon!
It's 4:30am now, the sun is rising, and I'm in my hotel room. Time to sleep.
