I thought that one of the disappointing things about going to Scotland this summer was that it would be the only place I visited without any live music (due to Covid restrictions, which are generally less in Europe than in the USA unless you are in the UK). However, during a tour I was on to the Isle of Skye, my tour guide played a great band from his hometown called “Mad Ferret”. He sort of DJed the songs he played on the bus and mentioned that Mad Ferret was playing the following night in Edinburgh. I went online and quickly grabbed up tickets for us before it sold out. The show ended up being the first allowed live music in Edinburgh in almost 18 months, and virtually everyone there was seeing live music for the first time in ages and freaking out. An amazing evening!

Bakken revisited

Bakken’s Sure Taeer

I made it back to Bakken, the world’s oldest amusement park, this summer for the first time in 13 years. According to my Danish friend, the same family has run this business for over 400 years!

The game in today’s photo has you sitting on a toilet while you spray the guy in the bathtub! The English translation of the official page says “It’s fucking fun!” Obviously, Denmark is a little more open to things than many parts of the world.
