The WorldWide Panorama event is taking place at the solstices, starting in March 2004. More than 200 photographers contributes to the gallery which now has more than 1400 panoramas online from more than 500 photograpers. Each time there is a theme and this time it is Energy.

Sydney Opera House - Australia

The Sydney Opera House is probably one of the most well known Architectual landmarks in the world.

Built virtually in the centre of the harbour of Sydney it is impossible to miss when visiting Sydney.

The architect, the Danish Jørn Utzon left the project already in 1966 after controversial discussions with the new government which took over in 1965.

7 years later the Opera House was finally inaugurated and formally opened by Queen Elizabeth II on October 20, 1973.

The internal design was after Utzon's resign taken over by Peter Hall, but after an arrangement made in 1999, some of it has been changed to the original design made by Utzon.

This room has been named the Utzon room and was officially opened on September 16 2004

Weiner Dog Race in Savannah

What the H--- is a Weiner Dog I had to ask when my US friends told me this was the main attraction at the Octoberfest in Savannah last weekend.

It turned out that a Weiner is American slang for Dachshund, also called Dachsel, Dackel, Teckel, Badger dog, in Danish Gravhund and in Swedish a Tax, ( I am a Swede but please do not ask me where the name "Tax" comes from)

Another slang name is sausage dog and from that we have a Wiener (sausage) dog or a Weiner.

That the people of Savannah comes up with a Weiner Dog Race is not surpricing.
Savannah is a very unusual US city who presents their city to the tourist from Horse carriages and Bicycle taxis with stories about ghosts and crazy people.

To meet more crazy people from Savannah you could see the movie "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" by Clint Eastwood featuring Kevin Spacey and John Cusack. The movie is based on John Berendt's best-selling novel.

And of course my panorama also contains a "Ghost" as this is a true Savannah QTVR.
