«Βάλε με» – Λένα Μαυρουδή-Μούλιου

….Open your hug in there

to go to sleep and to sleep

with a sleepless nightmare,

a sleep … dreamy! …

Let me stay there

By dawn….

….Άνοιξε την αγκαλιά σου, εκεί μέσα

να μπω να κουρνιάσω και να κοιμηθώ

με έναν χωρίς εφιάλτες ύπνο,

έναν ύπνο… ονειρεμένο!…

Άφησέ με να μείνω εκεί

Μέχρι το ξημέρωμα…….

Tumbalalaika – Andrea Guerra

A young lady stands, and he thinks

Thinks and thinks the whole night through
Whom to take and not to shame
Whom to take and not to shame

Tumbala, Tumbala, Tumbalalaika Tumbalalaika, strum balalaika Tumbalalaika, may we be happy Girl, girl,

I want to ask of you
What can grow, grow without rain?
What can burn and never end?
What can yearn, cry without tears?
  Foolish lady, why do you have to ask?
A stone can grow, grow without rain
Love can burn and never
and A heart can yearn, cry without tears
What is higher than a house?
What is swifter than a mouse?
What is deeper than a well?
What is bitter, more bitter than gall? 
A chimney is higher than a house
A cat is swifter than a mouse
The Torah is deeper than a well

Death is bitter, more bitter than gall

The Scarlet Sails Festival 2018

.

Κόσμος παρακολουθεί τα πυροτεχνήματα που σκάνε στον ουρανό πάνω από τον ποταμό Νέβα κατά τη διάρκεια των εκδηλώσεων για τη γιορτή Scarlet Sails στην Αγία Πετρούπολη.

Η γιορτή σηματοδοτεί το τέλος της σχολικής χρονιάς και γιορτάζεται με εντυπωσιακά πυροτεχνήματα, μουσικές συναυλίας και σόου στο νερό.

 

The Scarlet Sails is the most massive and famous public event during the White Nights Festival. The tradition is highly popular for spectacular fireworks, numerous music concerts, and a massive water-show including battle among tens of boats full of pirates on the waters of Neva River.

The Scarlet Sails show celebrating the end of school year 2007 was attended by more than one million people. In 2010 public attendance grew up to 3 million, and entertainers were such stars as Cirque du Soleil, Mariinsky Ballet and Antonio Banderas among others.
