• Upcoming trips

    None planned at the moment

  • Theatre and Music

    July 13 Saw the Apollo Amateur Night. Very loud noise and dancing in the aisles are not normally my thing, but I enjoyed the spontaneous excitement of this annual event. A glass of Malbec helped! Several contestants were ignominiously booed off the stage but I found the Sumo Wrestler's Japanese-style break-dance absolutely hilarious. A performer playing an enhanced Harmonica and another playing a modern Saxophone gave very good accounts of themselves!

Ben’s Page

Welcome

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
