Hello BalconyTV friends and fans.
Time for the weeks round up of what's happening in the world of BalconyTV -
1/ First up is random, bizarre and fun. Joseph Kelley is one of our producers at BalconyTV Brooklyn. He popped up totally randomly in a photograph in the New York times this week. Here is the article - http://tinyurl.com/lz8cw2v
And here is the photo -
Joe is the cool dude in the shades with the earphones.
2/ BalconyTV launched last week in Trieste, Italy. It's our 4th Italian location after Messina, Schio, and Rome.
The Lonely Planet says - Trieste, as travel writer Jan Morris once opined, 'offers no unforgettable landmark, no universally familiar melody, no unmistakable cuisine', yet it's a city that enchants many, its 'prickly grace' inspiring a cultlike roll-call of writers, travellers, exiles and misfits. Devotees come to think of its glistening belle époque cafes, dark congenial bars and even its maddening bora wind as their own; its lack of intensive tourism can make this often feel like it's true.
Tumbling down to the Adriatic from a karstic plateau and almost entirely surrounded by Slovenia, the city is physically isolated from the rest of the Italian peninsula. Its historical singularity is also no accident. From as long ago as the 1300s, Trieste has faced east, becoming a free port under Austrian rule. The city blossomed under the 18th- and 19th-century Habsburgs; Vienna's seaside salon was also a fluid borderland where Italian, Slavic, Jewish, Germanic and even Greek culture intermingled. - http://tinyurl.com/p7nm9lh
