Week 4 - China

Well another challenging week for my storyline because not much chance a Romani would be traveling to China in 1925.  What was I thinking when I chose the year 1925!!!!!  Oh well here is how I solved the problem. 

Natalyia has bartered her playing at a local wedding for a large pile of "papers" and in this pile she found this Chinese postcard and decided to send it to Marcello.  I wonder what else she may reveal from this pile in the future?  This week the only thing she has decided to reveal to Marcello is that her grandpa taught her everything he knows about violin.  So she has not yet revealed to Marcello that she can not read music.  How long will she wait before she tells him?


Here is my postcard . . .




ANd so the story continues...

Thanks to everyone for stopping by.
