The Eurovision Song Contest 2004
Now with video links for the reading of the votes, we can see who is selected to represent the
country concerned to all of Europe and everybody else across the world who watch the contest...
Note - the Maltese entry is incorrect, as is either the Greek or the Cyrpiot. I'll fix these pictures soon...
They were making a bit of a party of it...
Switzerland (Confederation Helveticæ)

Serbia & Montenegro

You can see how seriously the Germans take it all!
A DOG of annoying proportions.
Odd lighting for this; and possibly one of the smallest DOGs ever!
Oh, le Tour Eiffel. Quelle cliché!
