Georgia on my mind…

The first night in Oslo – a beautiful city – was spent at the lavish launch party for the Georgian delegation. It was held at the impressive Opera House…

The interior reminded me of The Lowry at Salford Quays, for those of you who have visited that venue. The booze flowed and the canapés were delicious. This was a good thing as alcohol and food is causing a lot of distress for the assembled Euro-philes – it is incredibly expensive. For example, half a pint of beer will cost you seven quid. So, Karen, Toni and I filled our boots and loitered at the party for a couple of hours. The Georgian delegation coordinated an impressive event, and on leaving we were presented with a goodie bag that included what looks like a small beach towel, pen drive, CD (it is a song contest remember!) and other treats.

It might be worth having a quick look and listen to the entry from Georgia: Sofia Nizharadze sings Shine, and she does it very well…

The view of the city during the evening was beautiful as we made our way back to the apartment at the end of a hectic day…
