At the end of the rather hard term at University I felt a little bit sentimental, thinking of good ol' times and realized how long the last celebration at my bar has been ago: more than one year! The decision has been made from one day to the other and I created an invitation for a surprise-party with my best friends. "It is easy to get to know people in life. There are many people that crossed my ways, but online some are what I call true friends...". The party has been called "Reunion 2004" for different reasons... first of all it has been a kind of reunion with the old crew of guests of the Metal-Bar, for example Tobias, Jan, Jan-Georg,... secondly one of my favorite bands Stratovarius will probably reunite after their split and that made me happy, too.
OK, there were some more guests than named up to now: "Chris" (on the left) and "Nicki" that are my students. Perhaps it sounds a little crazy to celebrate with students I teach, but who cares, they like to serve the guest and being part of the party!
