During the showcase we will have music playing, music that it is clearly inspired by the environmental movement.

9/11 memorial and new world trade centre

Long unidentified remains of 1115 of the victims are placed in a space in the bedrock 21 meters below ground as part of the 9/11 museum. I had a picture of the whitehouse but it hasn't loaded.

Last week we went to Graceland which was the home of Elvis Presley. While we were there we learnt that more Americans watched Elvis's '68 concert than mans first step on the moon. In a four year period he sold more than 50 million records , in the 60's. Sorry haven't had any good wifi for a while.
