Eurovision Song Contest – my guilty pleasure

It’s time again for me to gather in front of my TV and watch how Europe embarrasses itself. I usually am on the phone to my friends in Germany so we can (sort of) watch it together.

Back in Germany me and my friends would meet up, decorate the place with flags and other things from the hosting country and eat some of their traditional foods. So this year I will be sitting on my sofa by a popular Swedish designer (IKEA), drink tea out of a mug that was a gift from Sweden and probably eat some Swedish meatballs or gravlax.
