Eurovision wrap-up

We had a great party with a bunch of ex-pats and one newbie family. I was able to get the show on a Spanish TV channel in the end. My friend Kenji picked Greece as the winner a number of years ago at a party in my house and he did it again by picking Azerbaijan. Rick (the newbie) got into the spirit very quickly and had a number of excellent one-liners throughout the show.

The UK entry was OK- I think it was let down by the costumes and staging, which were a bit odd. Sweden's Eric Saade did well- for a while there I thought he might win and make my day perfect, but he faded a bit in the end.

I'm sure we will be hearing a bunch of these songs all summer on Skärgardsradio!
