HIPPIES, CHICKENS AND A BONFIRE by Elisa Martinelli (IT)
From Guns ‘n’ Roses to Kiss, the music heated the dance floor. It was supposed to be a unique party and it more than met that expectation. Unconventional music and a nice building in the middle of a yard created the core of this unforgettable event. Inside the carpets and comfortable sofas were disposed around creating a cosy atmosphere while in the open air some chickens were freely wandering on the grass. Committee pictures and crazy dances were the fundamental elements of last evening. People were chatting and relaxing after a day of hard work; everyone was proudly showing off hippie outfits and peace symbols drawn on cheeks and foreheads.
While the temperature started falling, people gathered around a bonfire sharing their thoughts and doubts. There was no time for feeling tired, excitement took over and the crowd became restless, the only keywords were now “having fun”. Although we all had to leave the venue, the party continued in the coaches where, in of them at least, everyone started singing “Yellow Submarine” and EYP related songs. The party was a chance to dance to old stunning songs and have an opportunity to understand that everyone can have fun with a bit of music and lots of friends.

BREAKING WAVES by Nives Kaprocki (RS)
A day filled with inter-committee presentations and touring the city will end with quite an evening programme. After the Euroconcert, in order to inform the delegates about the water issue, a movie “Blue gold: World water wars” will be shown. This will be useful for delegates wanting to know more about one of the most relevant issues nowadays. Apart from the connection to the session theme “Breaking Waves – Young Europeans on the Waterfront”, the movie might also provide some great defence and attack speech material!

JETSET EUROPE: LAUNDRY LINES AND FAST LANES by Tallinn Brûlé
On the JAL long haul back from Kansai International Airport, my magazine tote was feeling a bit thin. I seized the opportunity to get back to some of the JetSet summer FAQs I was flooded with – thank goodness that there’s a word limit. I have a long weekend coming up – London quickie or relaxing in Dubrovnik? It’s the Olympics, how is that even a question? But this time, try Hvar island: lunch at Konoba Menego, lavender ice cream at Kalavanda, Macondo for dinner. Depending on how young you feel, a 10 minute speedboat ride to Carpe Diem club may or may not be a good idea.
This summer’s pastels are overwhelming me – peach or mint green chinos? Aquamarine. Don’t roll them up more than twice, but make sure to keep your ankles visible. I’m going to GA on Friday and my suit is wrinkled. My hotel offers a laundry service, but no ironing – what to do? Buy a Porter suitcase and do your research before deciding where to take a room – or if you’re short on time, book through Tablet (an umbrella website for boutique hotels). With taste, time and luck, you might even receive an invitation to their private sale – some hotels are just too good to be public.

DAILY TALENT OF TALLINN IS by Sandra Harney (IE) & Jonathan Engel (DE)
Tallinn’s talent of the day revealed the outstanding abilities of one Mr. Hugo Hoyland. We are lucky to have him here in Tallinn seeing as it was the decision to put education before a professional sports career that kept him off the Olympic team and in EYP instead. You got a teaser of Hugo’s gymnastic skills in the first episode of Tallinn Media’s videos which aired during the hippie party. He furthermore convinced us to let him appear as the daily talent by performing a spontaneous and remarkable handstand over a bar table. After his flip he provided us with insights into the professional world of gymnastics. With 15 hours of training Hugo still only considers gymnastics to be a hobby, paling in comparison to the 30 hours of training he did once while on path to becoming a professional.
