• Upcoming trips

    July 3 to July 8 Egg Harbour and Atlantic City. Christine family visit and July 4th break.
  • Theatre and Music

    July 1 The "Guards at the Taj" is a powerful new play by Rajiv Joseph and it is performed by two superb actors: Omar Metwally and Arian Moayed.

    The play is about the aftermath of the building of the Taj Mahal and is the goriest since Titus Andronicus! A spell-binding tale but not for the faint-hearted.

    June 20 Saw Sam Waterston as "Prospero" in Shakespeare's "Tempest in Central Park. A wonderful performance in slightly drizzly conditions and the electronic storm was so realistic that it was quite frightening at times!

Ben’s Page


The content of this bBenbloglog is directed mainly, but not entirely, towards friends and travelling companions who may now still be numbered among the hundreds in spite of the attrition of the years . Their varied interests cover the world’s spectrum. The aim is a personal one,  it is to keep the conversation and exchange of ideas going for as long as I am able. The blog, then, will give viewers a fairly continuous idea of where I am and what I am up to so that they can respond when an interest is sparked. I hope that my camera will help prompt your comments and e-mails

The “Recent Posts” widget (sidebar) on the right will give you an idea of the travels I have  just made and of  my New York impressions. Below this is an index of my ‘Memoirs’ chapters which can now be read in the order in which they were written.

On the left-hand side you will see a notice of my upcoming trips followed by a notice  of my theatre- and concert-going and what my thoughts of the performances were. Below this, there is  a widget which allows those interested to register and receive notices of new posts automatically.

Notes: Click on the pictures, most will enlarge to full screen and give much greater detail

  1. I very much enjoyed your photos from Dresden. One city in Germany that I have not been to. Claire and I have no trips planned in the near future, but the wanderlust will get to us I am sure.

    John and Claire
