I spent four lovely days in Rome during the summer of 2008, on world tour with the Dins. Amidst wayward sight-seeing adventures and raucous nights out, we sang a series of energy-filled concerts (including a particularly memorable event at the US Consul General’s pad). I took this photo from the back of a taxi en route to the Trevi Fountain, and I felt it encapsulated in a strange way my time in Roma.
This is an edited photo taken in Choshi, Japan, in a small hotel room. I was traveling during the summer on tour with my singing group, and we stopped in this charming city for a series of concerts. The hotel was quaint, with simple mats for beds (and a surprisingly well-stocked mini bar). In the mornings we were served rice and fish, and we frequented the adjoining hot rock sauna. All in all, a memorable time.
