What to do in the holidays? Alexander Rybak recommends to readers of Puaro.lv and Ligo guide
In an interview at Puaro.lv Belarusian born, Norwegian musician Alexander Rybak, who three years ago won the Eurovision song contest with the song “Fairytale”, tells the story of his holiday habits, as well as advices on how to spend the weekends.
Recently the singer visited Latvia to attend the Mihail Kazinik concert “Fathers and sons”. Somebody has been asking – “Didn’t the weather seem too cold for the singer?”, but he just says “Not at all! In Norway it is much worse than here. Two weeks ago it even snowed there!” he reassured. “I feel very welcomed in Latvia. Unlike residents of other countries, you have the habit of showing your grace first, instead of waiting for someone to bless you.”
