Glastonbury 2011

Another year, another Glastonbury!!! And as always, it didn’t disappoint. This year it was a different experience for me but it was still a lot of fun! :-) It was the first Glastonbury since 2004 that I didn’t experience on my own. Mary was with me, which meant that …

I went to Moby‘s concert here in Seattle yesterday. It was absolutely great. I don’t know whether it was the music, the dancing (lots of jumping :-), the vibe, the wine + beers that we had beforehand, or the combination of all but I had an amazing time.

“Star Wars in concert” – It was excellent
