‘Tears of a thousand people are played on my guitar’ – Joci Pápai

 

Eurovision Second Semi Final was very classic Eurovision – mostly not my favorite songs – Switzerland didnt go through sadly – loved the incredible yellow dress. Wish songs were sung in own languages which the Hungarian was.

The final song was from Isreal and made me smile.

Eurovision – First Semi Final .. Portugal, Latvia, Moldovia, Belgium and many more

 

 

 

Thought Portugal was very sweet – singing in the center of the crowd. Love the Saxophone playing of Moldovia – not sure about the lyrics
Latvia didnt go through – only 10 of 18 in each semifinal go through plus the big 5.

The staging of all of them was amazing.

One more Semi Final this week and Final on Saturday
Please someone give Great Britain  – ‘Douze Points’ on Saturday

E.C. – May you never

apart from camping, my nights under the stars have been harmless, warm nights with my family in Greece when we couldnt find somewhere we could afford to stay – just once alone and spent a night in a police station until caught the milk train home.

Most memorable, with family driving back from Thessaloniki – because it was late and driving thru a mountainous area close to Albania, my father decided we should sleep besides the car until it got light but remember being woken and told to move on by armed police because bandits were in the area. Probably due to tensions in the Baltic at this time. We were driving towards Dubrovnik on the coastline of Croatia
