"egyptian rat screw" (card game including lots of slapping--of hands) is really part of my summer music camp memories---meadowmount, pacific music festival. probably even aspen, i'm not sure but i went there for like 7 summers or something. taos was just endless scrabble---so fun.
i think this was taken ten years ago. apparently they are playing egyptian ratscrew.. in italy. shawn, now in st louis symphony avec moi is on the left; i don't know the next guy; davin (!) has a goatee! haha; next is florence leblond, cellist, who was my neighbor at yale; then mark inouye (whose facebook album i stole this from) who is HILARIOUS cokeaholic (the drink, not the drug) who can do lots of neat-o tricks and oh is also principal trumpet of San Francisco Symphony.
