I'm spending an intense month updating guidebooks, and I'm finding some surprising new sights to add to the books -- for instance, this memorial in Munich to Michael Jackson. It is worth noting that though every country has its own leader, there was only on "King of Pop." He was as big in Europe as he was in America and his music is equally missed.

I couldn't help but capture the memorial, which says something about the universality of music and something else about what it means to be German.
