Ciampino, Latium Via Doganale (outside Roma)

Here is where we stayed for the performance in Roma. It is a wonderful hotel, restored from the “olden days.” Some fotos upon arrival follow:

Here is the interior of the lobby. This was in the middle of the building, running from front to back.

One wall of the lobby had these paintings of flags. I found them of interest. I hope you do also!

Calenzano, Tuscany Via di Barberino & Autostrada del Sole

On our way to Roma, and then after playing in Roma, on our way to Milano, (so somewhere between), we stayed at this hotel in the hills of Tuscany.

Munich – Altstadt-Lehel & Haidhausen, Bavaria

We arrived to our hotel in time for me to take my usual afternoon walk about the city. I walked a great distance on this day, enjoying the ever-unfolding events and structures. It is at this point in my travels taking fotos that I realize I am becoming more and more interested capturing the people and what they are doing. Walk with me and check it all out!

This foto, it was explained to me, is of a hydro-generator (paddle style), the first of its kind, that provides power forthe all electric Smart car you parked. So, electric power from running water! What a concept!

Erfurt – Altstadt Thuringia

This was our first day off after fifteen straight performances in fifteen different cities. I asked at the front desk which way to walk for fotos. It was a magical stroll through old Europe from our hotel, The Radisson Blu, to the Dom-platz and back. For this post, I will let the fotos speak for themselves. They follow here just as I took them yesterday. I hope you feel as though you are walking along with me. Enjoy!

I noticed this room between the stage and the dressing room. It was painted black with white lines and it inspired me to use it for a series of fotos of the band members, including our main man, Thomas. I learned that the lines represented where the shelving had been against the walls when they painted the walls black. When they removed the shelves, The Stella-like backdrop for my foto shot was ready. Enjoy!
