My regular café and then I meet...

Sitting on my regular café in a little nice area outside the center of Jerusalem city. The name of the café is "Aroma" and all the workers now know me. They always meet me with "hey Rika how are you" and then I get my usual small cappuccino. This café is my Israeli Gertrud. And for people who doesn't know what I'm talking about Gertrud is my regular café in Odense where I live in Denmark. 
I'm sitting at a nice little tabel, where I can look outside at the road where people are passing by. I'm take my computer from my back and then the relaxation of the day begins after a long day of work at the home. There is always a nice atmosphere, and you can here many different languages being spoken, mostly Hebrew of course. Right now there is sitting a French family. French is music to my ears. J'adore français ! While I sit in my own little bobbel and listen to music (Tom Jones of course) comes an old man to me talking to me in Hebrew. I have to stop him and sadly tell him that my Hebrew is not that good yet. He then ask me in English. Do you think Appel is better then Windows ? I tell him yes I think so. He thought I was from the U.S. I tell him that I'm from Denmark. It turns out that he spent a lot of time in Denmark, mostly Copenhagen, from August to Marts. What he found out about Danish people was that we Danish people drink a lot and dress like Vikings. This was in 1964 the year before he moved to Israel, where he has lived since. Before Denmark he went to America this was after the second world war. He used his time in America to earn a lot of money and then he spent a lot of them on vacations to Paris and Copenhagen. Then he moved to Israel. His name is Aron and is 82 years old. He used a lot of energi to tell me that he absolutely didn't felt like he was 82 years old, but his mom told him once that "one day you will wake up and look old". Then he said "have a good day" and left the café. 
So now I'm in my little bobble of music again... Tom Jones of course !! :D !! 
Shabbat Shalom from Jerusalem :--)

Hey Laura it's me

I was just checking my Facebook... when I found this amazing song !!! It is a song by the fantastic talented singer called Gregory Porter and it's called "Hey Laura" from his album called "Liquid Spirit" - a very nice, smooth and quiet song - but also a little sad. Gregory Porter really has a very special voice - he has his own sound !!! you can always hear when it's him who is singing - just like when you hear Tom Jones or Sam Smith sing. The first time I heard him live was when my mother and I went for the BBC Sing - show at the Royal Albert Hall. At that time I had never heard him before and didn't knew who he was, but I loved his voice and songs from the first time I heard him live at the Royal Albert Hall. Wow what a voice !!! 

I just thought I wanted to post this song on my blog because I think it is a really nice song... at the below I have posted the link to the video so you can listen to it if you want to.

The friendship between two legends!!!

This video is from the Tom Jones concert last night in Denmark – it was a fantastic concert, but there was one song that stood out from the rest. It was the song called “Elvis Presley Blues”. This was a very soulful and emotional performance from Tom. It was very touching to watch Tom sing this beautiful song about his good old close friend Elvis. Thanks Sir Tom Jones for this very special performance! I really hope that this song will be on your new album. 

Been watching this video all day long and it makes me shed a tear every time !!!!

The dream holiday !!!

Just got home from an AMAZING and let me say this again an AMAZING holiday !!!!

I was on holiday on the island called Sal, Cape Verde. At first when my friend and I arrived at the airport on Sal we were very skeptical because the weather was not the best (it was gray and very windy that day - but it was very sunny and nice weather the rest of the week :-D). Then we got on the bus and on our way to the hotel and OMG what a PARADISE we arrived at !!! The hotel was RIU FUNANÀ a ***** star hotel !!! The staff were very welcoming and greeted us with a smile and fresh juice. From the beginning my friend and I loved the hotel !!! At the reception we got the all inclusive bracelet - very nice :-) 

I have never experienced a holiday that has been so relaxing !!! The food was fresh, the rooms were super clean and the entertainment that was there every night was AMAZING - My favourite entertainment night was when the theme was "Cabo Verde" because you got to see their national- dances, food, fashion and etc. which was very nice !!! The staff at the hotel were AMAZING they really make you feel welcome. They were always smiling and would say "hello" or "hola" to you every time they walked past you !!! - Everything was top quality !!! The motto at the hotel was: "No more stress" - which is now my favourite motto !! :D !! The beach was also a PARADISE !!! I have never seen a more beautiful beach then this !!! 

I have never been to a place that was so positive and AMAZING !!! So if you want an AMAZING and relaxing holiday with "No more stress" then I would recommend RIU FUNANÀ Hotel and Resort ***** !! :D !!
