A Day In Berlin, Germany
One should not speak unfavourably of Berlin, especially when one has not experienced the charms of the German capital with a sacred whore.Everything is more animated when in the company of sacred courtesans, and Berlin is no exception to this, although others might disagree, you'll just have to join this Island Goddess in Berlin for further convincing;-)BreakfastThe first coffee house was opened in 1721 in Berlin, and for most international travellers, the smell of coffee is a warm and familiar way to flirt one's way into the day. Lest you forget that Berlin has its share of cozy coffee houses too!The International Escort recommends Barcomi's Deli in Berlin-Mitte and Barcomi's Kaffeerösterei in Berlin-Kreuzberg for homemade pancakes and strong bitter-sweet coffee.

Elite Ebony Courtesan
The Ebony Courtesan's website has been updated with new pictures. The Dark Lady pictured here is no other than Kathleen Glyde:-)Shakespeare's Dark LadyIn the old age black was not counted fair,Or if it were, it bore not beauty's name;But now is black beauty's successive heir,And beauty slandered with a bastard shame:For since each hand hath put on Nature's power,Fairing the foul with Art's false borrowed face,Sweet beauty hath no name, no holy bower,But is profaned, if not lives in disgrace.Therefore my mistress' eyes are raven black,Her eyes so suited, and they mourners seemAt such who, not born fair, no beauty lack,Sland'ring creation with a false esteem:Yet so they mourn becoming of their woe,That every tongue says beauty should look so.The Black Courtesan : Kathleen Glydefeeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/kddv
On The Tidal Mud, Just Before Sunset
The thing about poetry is that if you're moved by a poem you might not wish to say anything at all. You might wish to live with that poem in silence for awhile. If you're not fully able to understand it, maybe if you just read it to yourself again and again, get it by heart, you will come around to understand it in a way we don't have terms for expressing - Galaway KinnellDaybreakOn the tidal mud, just before sunset,dozens of starfisheswere creeping. It wasas though the mud were a skyand enormous, imperfect starsmoved across it as slowlyas the actual stars cross heaven.All at once they stopped,and, as if they had simplyincreased their receptivityto gravity, they sank downinto the mud, faded downinto it and lay still, and by the timepink of sunset broke across themthey were as invisibleas the true stars at daybreak.

Bouillabaisse From The Cote d'Azur
A good cook is the peculiar gift of the gods. He must be a perfect creature from the brain to the palate, from the palate to the finger's end - Walter Savage LandorAs Autumn ends, and the weather becomes colder, what better way to enjoy the season than with a hearty dish of French Bouillabaisse?Stew dishes are very popular in the Caribbean and the French Riviera,Cote d'Azur. As a teenager, Kathleen Glyde always looked forward to dining with the family - and what a festival that was too!At home, cooking was more a celebration rather than a chore. So it is quite undestandable that after having fish stew for the first time; Lady Glyde thought she had gone to heaven and back! What joy cooking brings - to nourish, educate and cultivate.

The Courtesan's Lazy Day At Home
When enjoying a lazy day at home, the Black Courtesan prefers to have breakfast around eleven. This way, she has enough time to explore the local market, buy fresh fruits, cheese, flowers, bread, croissants etc. The Ebony Courtesan does not eat much before noon, however, on her lazy day at home, she likes to make a hearty breakfast.After a languorous meal, the Black Courtesan retreats to her music room where she plays the piano for the remainder of the afternoon. Music is Kathleen Glyde's constant companion, and lazy days are incomplete without it. As a child, the Black Courtesan enjoyed long walks in the woods, but the most intense and solitary walks were after piano lessons. Soul food, music, nature, silence - those are the contents of the Black Courtesan's lazy day, moreover, nature always inspires the Black Courtesan to paint, but on a lazy day at home, she is not in the mood for such an undertaking. She prefers a tea ceremony instead:-)After tea-time, bath and a short nap, ...

The painting pictured is one of the Black Courtesan's favourite works of art,( she'll explain in a later post why this painting is so special to her ).

Titled - 'The End Of The Ball'When the Black Courtesan was asked to join a world-class courtesan and her lover in Budapest, she did not hesitate to pack. The Ebony Courtesan kindly accepted the gracious invitation, and off she went to luxuriate in the Paris of the East. The problem is, Budapest has it all - art, museums, archeological treasures, crumbling castles, fortresses, thermal spas and Baroque towns - so 12 hours weren't enough in this beguiling city - but Lady Glyde hopes to return soon:-)The Coffee Houses In BudapestWith a visit to one of the traditional coffee houses- one experiences a piece of Budapest's beautiful tradition. At the end of the 19th and 20th century, these coffee houses were the meeting point of the intellectual elite and the Bohemian.Examples of B...
The Autumn Leaves Of Red And Gold...
Kathleen Glyde is nestled amongst the rolling hills of Bordeaux.Gathering the leaves of red and gold,while Autumn blossoms fall like snow on bare-mountain tops. The poem below reflects the Black Courtesan's sheer wonderment of the season. Autumn LeavesPalettes of orange, yellow and golda mixture to tease the darkest of souls.An arrangement of hues both bland and brightblown through the air when the wind hits just right.All shapes and sizes their structure may bebut one can distinguish their genesis tree.Elms, maples and the mightiest oaksshedding their cover, baring their coats.It's sad just to see them tossed in the breezewhen I think of the way they pleasure and please.If ever a season could put me at easeI'll always remember those fine Autumn Leaves.From The Book Of Poemsfeeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/kddv

Oxford - Cafe Freud
Schrullige Professoren, fleißige Studenten, läutende Glocken, Ruderboote, die frühmorgens durch stilles Wasser schneiden: Das ist Oxford. Äußerlich passt die Freud Café-Bar zu dieser traditionellen Seite der Stadt.In der ehemaligen Pfarrkirche St. Paul untergebracht, hat sie von außen etwas vom Pantheon in Rom. Und drinnen prägen alte Buntglasfenster, schlichte Säulen und die 15 Meter hohe Decke die Atmosphäre. Benannt ist die Bar nicht nach dem berühmten Psychoanalytiker, sondern nach ihrem Besitzer David Freud. Der baute die Kirche 1988 zur Bar um. Heute kann man hier tagsüber auf der Sonnenterrasse faulenzen und Zeitungen lesen oder die einmal im Monat wechselnde Kunstausstellung im ehemaligen Kirchenschiff bewundern. Nachts verwandelt sich das Café in eine Bar. Studenten und Einheimische tanzen nebeneinander und hören die Musik der lokalen Jazzbands, die regelmäßig dort spielen. Klassische Cocktails - Mojitos, Bloody Marys, Zombies - werden an dem langen Messingt...

Kathleen Glyde : Gone Sailing
The International Escort
The International Escort is beautiful, sensuous and intelligent. Her beauty provokes the world and her response is a mixture of laughter, occasional cynicism and a free, deliciously open and occasionally menacing sexuality. To put it another way, the international escort celebrates all the finest things that life has to offer in her own special way.The International Escort has a convivial and prepossessing charm that captivates all whom she allows to know her. It is, perhaps, her well-bred background that gives her a cool and dispassionate attitude to everything in life beyond sex and friends:-)In these areas, the international courtesan is both extremely passionate, demanding and capable of sudden and quixotic change – going from purring kitten to voracious tiger in an instant. The result is that the international escort is dangerously provocative. She inspires – these words without shame or arrogance -- irresistable desire.
