I sometimes wonder, “why am I American?” In the political landscape of today others may feel this same way. But, really, how could I come from the land that has shunned the greatest artists of our time?  I’m talking about ABBA. Every other civilized nation of taste (Sweden, England) eat, sleep, breathe the perfect pop prince and princesses. Their lack of respect in the USA makes me want to protest. Scream from the rafters. Pick fights with all you Bruce Springsteen and Kanye West loving Americans. How could you not get it?

Well, there is a place for people like me to escape. Recently opened in London is ABBAWORLD, the first, and only, ABBA theme park in the world. It promises that the “phenomenon of ABBA will be brought to life with interactive highlights including: Perform with ABBA, which will allow fans to get up on stage with their idols, as part of a stunning 3D holographic illusion. Tretow MIX Challenge – a chance to mix things up and re-create the ABBA sound, the ABBA quiz which will test fans’ knowledge. There is also the opportunity to sing-a-long and dance with ABBA, plus a chance for fans to see themselves as part of an ABBA video.”

I need to stop typing this and get on Orbitz now for tickets to England. Christmas is coming in January this year.
