perfect day

I give myself gifts for my birthday.
Not just random stuff I happen to want – I give myself gifts meant to be of use in the future I want for myself.

In 2010 I got myself a suitcase (a yellow one %), less than a year later I landed on a job with ASUS that made frequent travel a reality.
For year 2012 I treated myself to a trip to Moscow on a day of my birthday – to see one of my favourite bands in concert.
And yes, that’s a hint if ever there was one (using the occasion: thanks to whoever processed my wish up there, guys ;)

Northern Skies

Weather changed for worse in the evening, so all attendees of Ahmad Tea Fest were provided with plastic raincoats.
White ones, with spiky hoods… It made crowd look like a very strange Ku-Klux-Klan kadre: peaceful, cheerful, with tendency to lounge on grass, blow bubbles.

Surreal sight to say the least.

Strange Little Girl

"THEM"

John Bramwell (of I Am Kloot): When I was a boy, Soviet Union was portrayed as THEM in our press and media. And I never thought that I’d visit Moscow one day… I’m here now. And I’m diggin’ these outfits. But you DO LOOK like THEM”.

Over the evening listeners were also compared to ghosts or just possibly angels.

Anthony: “You look like a CLOUD from here!”

I Am Kloot

I Am Kloot: Singing songs about “LOVE and… DISASTER”
