Hello everybody.
EPP2014 in Lisbon is officially open!!!

Greener, the first pianist arriving to EPP2014, traveled all night and he's now with me in Lisbon. He flew over 5.871 km to be with us.
Welcome Greener!

This is our first EPP picture (Greener on the left).


I was following Greener's flight. This is his position @09AM (Lisbon time):

I was about to bring a real piano and play some pieces to make a truly bombastic reception, but the security guys were afraid that the other passengers ran in panic from the airport and they did not want to cause an international incident. So sorry...

Anyway, just find this sign in exit hall:

JimF - Thanks! C'mon, there are several flights between South Florida and Portugal. You can still come to the party grin

Recaredo - Too bad you can't come to Portugal this time... you're only a few hours away by car. Sure, we'll take photos to share in PW.

malkin - Buying shoes? You bet! We have the best shoes in the world thumb

earlofmar - My friend, do you want to organize a Piano Party in Australia? I'd love to visit you!

Here are a couple. This first picture is a nice view of DT Lisbon and a 2 minute walk from my room. The second is a Palace at the top of a mountain in Sintra (resort village on the coast.) I just got back a few moments ago and will be meeting up with the rest of the group for another nice dinner in 2 hours.

Oh, nice shoes! smile

And Lisbon is beautiful. Love the "cake" feel of the castle. Looks like a great vacation.

Nice meeting point at the local metro station where I met the rest of the group. The whether is 29 degrees celcius or 84 fahrenheit, feeling nice due low humidity.


The entrance of the restaurant is quite tricky to find.


View from the entrance into the restaurant.


The bar.


Gathering and lunch time.


A lot of presents.


Everybody got his own drawing from Carlos.


And a Pianoworld cup.



Mr Pianoworld, Frank, through skype, saying hello and he was the first guest playing a piece.


Then Carlos sat down at the piano and played.
