i just spent 2 1/2/ weeks vacationing in berlin. while primarily uneventful, i did attend obama’s speech at the siegessäule – which was kind of disappointing. after reading about his charisma and aim to overcome partisan divides the reality presented an eloquent politician giving a well formulated speech which main message was for everybody to work for a better world. in other words, a lot of talk, but no real plan of action.
the other main event of my trip was that my former band svoboda is included on the new russendisko compilation “ukraine do amerika” (russendisko records 2008) – with the song “marusia” featuring me on the trumpet! 🙂
