This was a hard one!  I eventually ended up with the premise of one day writing a book along the same lines as this blog.  Here’s an idea for the book cover – a collage of United Buddy Bears, representing countries and cultures important to me.  Pictures taken at the exhibition in Berlin 2011.

What an incredible example of endurance!  The Frauenkirche in Dresden was completely destroyed during the bombing raids of February 1945 and then painstakingly restored from 1993 onwards, using as many of the original pieces as possible.  Someone described it as the largest jigsaw puzzle ever!

Today, it is a stunningly beautiful church and a major tourist attraction.

On a recent trip to Samos/Greece, I was struck by people just getting on with normal life while tourists (myself included!) were being – well, tourists – all around them.
