While I come to this forum on account of its core topic, I very much enjoy these occasional travelogues as well and how they relate to the idea of an aesthetic restoration. The post
from earlier this year about the Drachenfels and Schloß Drachenburg was also very interesting.
By the way, since this thread began with an image of plus-size soprano Twyla Robinson, here's a photograph of the singer as the Countess in a production of The Marriage of Figaro,
looking buxom and beautifully full-figured.
Twyla is the world's most gorgeous and curvaceous operatic soprano. I loved last year's post about her appearance as Eva in Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg,
as well as this year's discussion of her performance as the Marschallin in Der Rosenkavalier.
