heather reccomends you read . . .

Check out Lonely Planet for all this infomation about "only in 2009" events 

Total Solar Eclipse, Varanasi, India. It may be cloudy, it will certainly be chaotic, but the chance to witness a 4-minute totality in one of the most ancient sun-worshipping sites in the world is just too much to resist. Occurs 22 July 2009.

Magnificence of the Tsars exhibition, Victoria and Albert Museum, London. No-one could lay on the sumptuous like a Russian tsar. Marvel at the pomp of their ceremonial clobber. Until 29 March 2009.

Motown's 50th anniversary, Detroit, USA. Detroit has a year's worth of celebrations planned (exhibitions with celebrity docents, special releases) to honour the legendary soul label. Detroit's lively music scene is sure to have an extra jolt in its amps.

Hitsville USA

'Hitsville USA' is the nickname given to Motown Records' first headquarters, now the Motown Historical Museum

Hiya Heather! Just saw your bloglink on my Facebook, thought I'd cruise on over. I'll try to steer a few folks your way, too!

For some reason, this post (but not the one below) displays unreadably small on my laptop...
