On Tuesday morning Apostolos and I took a trip to the Munch museum. I was pleasantly surprised by the collection – with a range of styles that say more about his work than the iconic Scream  probably represents.

If you are interested in what the ERN is all about, then go to www.eurovisionresearch.net for further details.  I’ll report back with how the events go on Thursday and Friday.
