Boldog 50. születésnapot Bratislavská Lýra 1969!

On the evening of 18th June 1969 Valinka – sharing the bill with no less than The Beach Boys! – performed ‘Sunny’ at the Bratislavská Lýra of 1969. This evening of 18th June 2019 I was back at where the PKO Bratislava was before its demolition (quite a disgrace, considering the history of the place!), to be replaced by the River Park development, with a celebratory supper of an appropriately Hungarian-Slovak nature, Zlatý Bažant also celebrating a half-century, by the base of a lime tree – lime trees getting a mention in the lyrics of Valinka’s ‘Pokloň se, lásko’ (‘Love, Take A Bow’) – where I’d sprinkled some of the precious ‘Démantová zem’ (‘Diamond Earth’) from just outside Valinka’s alma mater of the Gymnázium Pavla Horova, making this spot by the River Danube forever a part of the ‘louky’ (‘meadows’) of Michalovce, in the midst of this gleaming new complex.
