It’s interesting that I travel all the way to Gothenburg, Sweden and on this Tuesday morning I turn the TV on to see Donald Trump making a guest appearance on a 1996 episode of The Nanny with Fran Drescher.
This is the hotel (Hotel Opera) where I’m spending Monday and Tuesday nights.
I have actually been in Gothenburg before. Forty years ago (1979) while serving in the Air Force in England at RAF Bentwaters, I caught an overnight ferry from Felixstowe, England to Gothenburg, Sweden. The day that I arrived in Gothenburg, there were posters everywhere stating that Abba was performing in concert in their arena. It was quite a treat to be one of probably only a few Americans to see Abba perform in their home country.
One of my great memories of the European Cold War era.
