Belgrade Blog: After the Semi

It sure is quiet today at the Press Centre, but action should pick up soon for the Semifinal 2 tomorrow. Full dress rehearsals begin today. Maiken has gone to Novi Sad, Serbia’s second city 80km from Belgrade, so she will upload the photos later.

The After Party last night was fun, and the Finnish flag certainly was visible, especially when ”Missä miehet ratsastaa” was played. It was good to see that people at the Euroclub generally liked the song. Poland’s Isis Gee made an appearance, and there might have been the other Semifinalists as well but I wouldn’t know because Maiken had a misery in her feet and I was feeling aged and tired so we left around 02:30.

Like the ESC itself, people at the Press Centre, the Euroclub and the Eurocafe represent many nationalities, as well as many shapes, sizes and attitudes (ranging from hot through just-plain-nice to downright idjits), but without them it just won’t be Viisuvikko.

Okay, I’m blabbing because there’s not much else to report but there is a party at the Euro Cafe tonight so maybe there’ll be some gossip to tel tomorrow. Bye the way, just in case you didn’t know, Euro Cafe is the locale downtown organised by OGAE Serbia.
