I spent the last few days chillaxing in Budapest. There are two main things to do here: eating cake and resting at a spa. Some of the thermal baths date back to the Turkish period. Like the KirÃ¡ly, which comes with extra gay gayness to clean out every orifice.
When I leave Budapest tomorrow evening, I guess I will be just as tender as a big, fat piece of warm butter. Melting away and ready to party. Fasten your seat belts.
I vistited Beppu, the hot spring capital of Japan, in 2002. The whole city is basically running on hot steam. Nine of the hot springs are also known as Hells, which offer unlimited tourist fun.
Now today, eons after my visit, I received an e-mail from Beppu, letting me know that the Beppu city administration has installed a webcam. So cute:
We are very pleased to inform you that you can now observe hot springs steam. (…) We hope that you enjoy the scenery of Beppu-Kannawa Onsen, from time to time, through the Live -Camera available 24 hours a day.
Want to go back right now!
After Frankfurt Gay Pride, the tour with Ms. Messhausen led us through 3 countries and 5 cities in 8 days. It was the blast, during which we rediscovered our love for the German article “die” (pronounced dee). As some of you may remember this site started as dieproduzentin.de
After Mary went back to Toronto last Sunday, I needed a rest from the binge purge & shopping excesses. Cocooning seemed like the only solution.
Tuesday night, I watched “Die Stein“, a new TV series about die lustig lüsterne Lehrerleben. A welcome surprise of the show is the former Fassbinder actress Irm Herrman in a supporting role as the school’s secretary.
Anyway, here is a picture of die pumps I bought in Antwerp. Now, I’m asking myself, might die MMM heels be to demure?

As if the snow in Toronto wasn’t enough, I’m in Sault Ste. Marie until Friday. I’ve learned it’s somewhere in northern Ontario. I guess to make sure that everyone knows how to pronounce “Sault”, the city is also called Soo by them peoples.
I’ve put a couple of pictures on flickr.
