Collecting songs
(BETWEEN FRANCE AND NEPAL) In France, I tell children a story and they sing a song that I collect. Once I have finished my french collect, I will leave hitch hiking to Nepal. On my way, I will sing with my guitar and i will juggle with children. In return, they will teach me a song wich will delight my travel and wich will meet others children fron the world. Spreading songs all the way, I would like to provoke meetings and to build bridges between children from differents countries.

my map: here are the countries, i would like to travel across during three      months with hitch hiking and local transports.

- France : i start collecting songs. Before leaving i tell the Tunga story "The story way of the musics of the word" in Mayenne. I learn to be a story teller and i collect money and i put the finishing touches to my departure : january 8 th 2008

- Germany : if everything goes well i will stop at Waibilgen near Stuttgart to bring the songs in a school.

- Austria : a country hardly know , i have no contact in this country so far.

- Hungria : i might go in a school specialised in music with Stéphanie Gougeon who lives in Budapest. I think they will have songs for me.

- Romania : a school could wellcome me at Novaci. Keen or speeking french, they will receive the words of the french songs and so they will know the songs before i arrive. Michel Pichon who goes to Romania twin towns several times a year gave me this contact.

- Bulgaria : a legend was born in "the Pos'café" bar in Montjean telling that i have an image in Bulgaria, his name is Triffon Ivanov, he looks like me. I'm not conviced and used to play in the football national time; i might see him in Bulgaria. But i certainly meet children in a school in Lovec thanks to Patrick Moussay.

- Turkey : this coutry with many cultural differencies will take me close to Asia. In this coutry hitch hicking is unusual so i will travel with local transports.

- Iran :  its hospitality, i'm looking orward to being in this country wich we often hear about its president and the nuclear bomb. I'm happy to meet his inhabitant. I'm touch with Iran islamiste republic ambassy. I hope to be in touch with a school in Téhéran.

- Pakistan : i hope the situation will be more peacefull in this wormfull and wellcoming country.

- India : i will meet India and its crazyness; i will see my indian friend ,i met him in the south of India in july 2006. He will wellcome me in yis home in Delhi.

- Nepal : i'm sure to be fascinated by this country, i will bring my songs to the children nepalish. I will share their life in the orphanage in Pokhara. They have a lot of songs to give me. Thantks to Clémentine who gave me the contact of Milan  and to Pascal who 's the president association " L'air de rien " wich support this orphanage. Visite the website. After Nepal i will treck during 20 days in Himalaya around Annapurnas.

I'm sure to have a lot of songs to bring back to the french children; with i will come back through China and Russia. The most dificult will be to get the visas; or i continu my route to the south east of Asia if i can afford it. I try to visit schools in France in december 2008
