In March I spontaneously went to Florida to warm myself up in 86°F after that Northern coldness of 30°F. I started early in the morning and arrived in Orlando at noon. Let me repeat this: I love Orlando! And the area around! It’s all so green, there’re so many lakes, all so wide open. Fantastic! But this time – after having wished to do so for so long I finally watched the Cirque de Soleil Show “La Nouba” in downtown Disney. It’s certainly not comparable to the great Las Vegas productions like Ká or O, but altogether pretty nice. The second day I spent at the beach and this beach had a cool surprise for me – more details about that later.

The Queen’s Royal Garden Party 2015 in Edinburgh
When the Queen had been staying in Germany I wasn’t there. But no, incidentally I was in Edinburgh when her annual Royal Garden Party was going on. After I had been wondering about all those nifty people in the city and mostly in the area around Holyroodhouse two nice ladies told me the Queen is in town – together with 8,000 invited guests who all made me feel like being at the horse run in the movie “My fair Lady”…

Elvis Tribute Artist Ben Portsmouth Travels the World Enjoying his Afternoon Tea…
At the purple-black decorated desk in the New Daisy Theatre on famous Beale Street in downtown Memphis I sit working – and, waiting for all the fans to finally get their autographs and take their photos of themselves together with Elvis-Impersonator Ben Portsmouth, who just minutes ago was sitting right there on a white wooden folding chair performing his acoustic concert. It’s Elvis Week 2015 and the city is crowded with men, women and even children who look astonishingly similar to Elvis Presley. Ben Portsmouth though is looking rather casual right now with his plain white T-shirt and fawn-colored trousers as he welcomes his fans with an excessively charismatic smile. At long last – after all the fans have had their chance to shake hands with him – Ben appears with a stack of New Zealand chocolate, a much appreciated gift from his fans. Ben directs his eyes to me as if to acknowledge what we both know – we’re starving – and so Ben proposes we go out to lunch.
