Hi, we were at Cafe Luz Y Luna and we met a friend who works there, his name is Otoniene, we call him Oto. Then we went with him to the shop that sells guitars, so that daddy could play the guitar. At the checkout I discovered a violin, I got the violin with some money my grandpa had given me for my birthday before we left Canada.
My grandpa's name is Ron and he has a travel blog too at travelpod his address is Ronathome and he went to Mexico.
I have some pictures of my violin which I'll put on. The violin has been awesome it sounds awesome as well. Daddy doesn't know how to play many songs yet but he'll try.
Right now I am trying to play a song which I know that is called Cluck Old Hen.
It has a few plucks in it which I keep forgetting (plunk, boing, pluck). I am learning how to sing Nicaragua Nicarita. Walter plays the guitar and I sing along as well.
I have been learning a Bob Dylan song called "Blowin in the Wind" on my violin. We don't have sheet music but I've figured out the notes pretty good.


How many roads must a man walk down
before you can call him a man.


How many seas must a white dove sail
before she can sleep in the sand.


Yes and how many times must the cannon ballls fly
before their forever banned.


The answer my friend is blowin in the wind
the answer is blowin in the wind.


Yes and how many years can a mountain exist
Before it is washed to the sea


Yes and how many years can some people exist
Before their allowed to be free


Yes and how many times can a man turn his head
and pretend that he just doesn't see


The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind


Yes and how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky


Yes and how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry


Yes and how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died.


The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.


That's how the song goes. I hope to be able to play more songs, but that is good for now.

Your new violin
Hi Dalton: I was very happy to find out that I helped you buy that violin because I love to hear you play and I know how much you used to like playing the violin back home.
Thank you for sharing the words of Dylan's song. It is one of my favourites. I can't wait to hear you play it. It would be great to have a duet with your Dad.
Take care of yourself. I hope you are feeling better now.
Love,
Grandpa
