WELCOME TO THE 11TH EDITION OF THE EUROVISION DIARY!

May 6

Gooooooood morning Ukraine!

These couple of days here have been Family Days, where crew members can have their families come and visit and watch a few rehearsals. It's nice to come see what your loved ones have been caged up doing for the past month and get a taste of Eurovision behind-the-scenes.

 

1familyday

Friends and family got to sit in the grandstands for rehearsals of Ukraine and the Big 5. Here's Spain on stage.

And since the house is full of locals, I wanted to run around with my camera and snap some of our friendly local staff that we run to yelling "help!" on a regular basis. I think I've only introduced Vika and Roman, who I couldn't have done this without (see April 4-5, April 7 and April 18), but I didn't want to overlook some others. Here's the lovely Aliona Zimich, our travel coordinator.
