L(ovely) G(reetings) from L(os) A(ngeles)

Beverly Hills…Santa Monica…Hollywood…Glitter…Glamor…Girls-Girls-Girls…
Girls-Girls-Girls??? I’m torn out of my thoughts.

“There…there is a nightclub. Girls Girls Girls it’s called. I thought teht da geschrieben. I thought something like a red-light-district is something like banned in the US?”

“Hmm, I think it’s okay when they call it a Cabaret Show.” thinks Matthias.

Cabaret-Show? Well, so the girls here have to be funny as well? As it were Stand-up Comedy… Continue reading “L(ovely) G(reetings) from L(os) A(ngeles)”

A fortnight in California – the most beautiful places

I am sitting here, writing and big elephant tear drops are running over my cheeks and dripping on my laptops keyboard.

Lands End Trail – Cataract Falls – Weekend – Sunshine

“Ooooooooh! The sun is shining!” Matthias und Kiki are happy.

We have not seen the sun for a long time! Just as in Austria is the coldest winter since years, here is it rainy! And it does not just trickle, no! The rain pours down out of the sky. That is so impressive so I often press my nose against the window for a minute, or two, to watch the spectacle out there. California, despite numerous flooding and road blockages, is delighted as the drought (existing for years) is over. 

The land needs the water, but we are thirsting for dry feet and sunshine. So, let’s go out there! Continue reading “Lands End Trail – Cataract Falls – Weekend – Sunshine”
