Yesterday we went to a medieval city, called Carcassonne.  When we walked in we saw a lady playing the Pink Panther theme on a flute.  After we walked around the city for a while we found a store that sold hand wound music boxes.  Mum wanted to buy me one because she knows how much I like music – she bought me Fur Elise, which is a song I play on the piano,...
