The Happy Traveler
Sunday, April 05, 2009
One of my favorite genres was the "western." As an adult, I was hooked on western TV series like "Bonanza," "Cheyenne," "Maverick" and "Wagon Train." That's why it was such a hoot for me to recently visit Old Tucson Studios in Tucson, Arizona.

I stood beneath Munich’s Neo-Gothic City Hall on Marienplatz, the city’s central square. I peered up at the Glockenspiel tower and thought about that comedy skit. The crowd cheered as the Glockenspiel’s 43 bells rang, and knights – part of the clock’s 32 life-size mechanical figures -- jousted on horseback. The locals revere their Glockenspiel.
