Golden Ears Jazz Band
member: Hans Coesel
I am an old geezer from 1947, originally from the
Netherlands, and never had any formal music lessons. I ended up playing
the trombone because our music director wanted us to learn how to read music
Because I am a diabetic and I am able to avoid taking medication, we
substitute long daily walks and spend our holidays on a bicycle. We
cycled the Oregon and California Coasts, did the ferry circle route in BC,
cycled from Langley to Newfoundland, from Amsterdam to Santiago de
Compostella in Spain and from Amsterdam to Basel. This year we will go
from Glasgow, via Harwich through Holland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and back
to Amsterdam on our bikes. Last year we did not cycle, but walked 500km
of the Camino in Spain. On all of these trip we carry our own housing.
Outside of the physical, my interests are computers, reading, soccer
(French/Spanish/Dutch style), cooking the odd special meal and watching full
length spy type thrillers.
