Thank you for the kind words ... but I think I make lots of mistakes when I'm writing in English. I'm Swedish or Scanish!! We are tallking a little special down here in the South of Sweden. Scania was a part of Denmark in the 17th century and we can still trace some of our old language which was called eastdanish. On the Danish island Bornholm in the Baltic sea the eastdanish is even more distinguished. Everyone starts to learn English in public shools when they are 8 years old. So most Swedes, more or less, understand and speak English. Your daughter should come to Sweden to study. We have elections in September and one issue is how we should get more people to come to Sweden to develope our country. We had a wave of English immigrants in the 19th century. They developed the Swedish wood industry up in the north.Thomsax, may i ask you an off topic question. Are you swedish or just living there, I`m just curious really because your english is really excellent, what i mean is that its not written as a non native english speaker would normally write, and if your not swedish can you read and speak that language... I looked at the pictures of the bari and wow what a difficult language that seems to be, normally I can pick out the odd word or two that seems common between lots of languages but swedish looks really difficult. My daughter is at uni studying languages and wants to travel to learn some new ones ( basic stuff obviously) I think i`ll show her that site, it might put her off Sweden for life....

To cut a short story shorter, Thomas has bought the sax, got it to his house, packed it up and sent it on to me. It left Sweden last Thursday and arrived in Southampton yesterday, 4 days later.... ..... and I am currently in Perth, Western Australia. I will not actually see the instrument until mid August!
