Going on with the Independence day topic...

As I had no oppurtunity to go home on these celebrations and meet my friends, family, peers - my whole nation, actually - in the celebratory parade, the President's address to the people, the great firework, and other events, I was absolutely glad when I found out about this Estonian-Latvian cooperational concert in honour to the 87th anniversary of Latvia’s declaration of independence.

It took place in Nomme Culture Centre (?) and both Latvians and Estonians took part in it. Although it seemed that there no other viewers of the concert apart from me, my mom, a handful of my friends, who had come to Tallinn to accompany me in the celebration, and the parents of the children who took part in it, the performance was just perfect! Well, probably "perfect" is not the word most suitable here, but at the moment nothing better comes into my mind.

A Latvian ensemble opened the whole event - ah, how good it was to hear some deep-felt songs of that most beautiful language in the world: Latvian! Imants Kalnins... Raimonds Pauls... you just sit there and give way to your soul which sings along aloud.
After, the stage turned into a dancing floor. Unfortunaly, not in a folk-dance dancing floor, but that of modern dancing - something between aerobics and breakdance. Here mostly Estonian teenagers performed. Not too correspondant show if we think about the true reason of the coming together, but, god is my witness - the whole event was just rampant with positive emotions and joy!

Thanks to Nomme Culture Center, it was more than nice! :))))
