Robb and I watched the live Grand Finals of the European Song Contest which is held every year around this time. Every European country (and Isreal for some reason) has an entry. Most of them are nothing outstanding, but a few are truly unique. This year, I selected Russia , Sweden and Albania as my choices for the top prize. The actual winners were Sweden, Russia and Serbia. Because Sweden won this year, next year's competition will be held in Stockhom. The one outstanding thing, in my opinion, is that the French singer sang in English as well as French, and the French presenter spoke English. I can't remember that ever happening before. Maybe it's the new President. If you've never seen the competition, I do recommend you watch at least once. You can see it live at the website listed above. You can also see this (and previous) year's performances there and on You Tube.
Our trip is falling apart because of the inability of Robb's French bank (BNP Paribas) to realize this is 2012 not 1912, and a check that seems to have gotten lost in the mail somewhere between Fort Lauderdale and Paris. The bank insists Robb send everything through snail mail. It has already cost us the aprtment in Montpellier.
