  1. Dear Phoebe, thank you for the wonderful concert yesterday in Hildesheim. I also liked to talk with you after concert. Have a safe trip back to home.
    I am happy to recognize that USA are not only Mister Trump.
    Warm regards


    • Thank you, Ulli! Being in Germany was such a wonderful experience, in all ways. Trump is no friend to most Americans, but is instead an embarrassment. Don’t give up on us!
