The Dutch delegation already visited Istanbul three weeks ago, to get an impression of the city and to check out the venue. What they saw was pretty much of nothing. “Nothing was finished around the venue when we came here a few weeks ago… a lot changed in the meantime”.
Cornald Maas and Willem van Beusekom, the Dutch commentators, visit the press conferences to get to know more about the participants. As usual, long but decent cues are being created when the CDs and press kits come up.
Paul, together with Fabrizio Re-union, told esctoday.com about last night: “I had a few drinks too much yesterday night, so now I am wearing sun glasses”, he said. Minutes later it starts raining… probably he's still wearing the glasses ;).
Tomorrow, several delegations will take a boat tour over the Bospurus, which devides Istanbul in two parts. Esctoday.com plans to join the tour, to get to know more of the participants of this year's Eurovision Song Contest!
