Concerts in Poland and Germany

Dear Aleksy,

Thank you for organizing the concerts for both of us to play in during this winter break. I thought this trip was really timely- I really needed to leave London for a bit and be in a place where no one knows me. Thank you for being my translator, tolerating my fake smiles in a bid to be strong (hey, fake it till you make it, right?), taking selfies and being a kid with me. I can't remember when was the last time I played catch and have pillow fights, and walking around aimlessly in new cities. 

Truth be told, I didn't know what to expect from this trip. I changed my recital repertoire two days before our first concert (thank God you didn't get into trouble!), and you told me to prepare 2 Baroque arias three days before!!!! When was the last time I sang anyway?! I was in a constant state of panic. Thankfully, our concerts went well and everyone seemed happy. 

I'm sorry if I embarrassed you for squealing every time I see a Christmas tree, which is probably like 9287319873 times. I'm going to miss waking up to "Good morning, little hobbit" and "Jiejie, do you want Zǎo fàn?" 

Please, don't go back to your Bieber hairstyle you had in first year, Xiaodi.
