Episode 17 – Curtain in Tatters

Greetings Comrades! Our episode about 1989 in the eastern bloc is out! Within: Baltic Way, interview about the Berlin Wall, soap operas, revolutions and more. As today is the largest Latvian national celebration of the year, I can’t provide more explanations right now, I have to jump over a fire, while drinking a beer! Līgo!

Pictures for today’s episode:

These are from the Baltic Way. They might seem naive and too optimistic, but…we were like this at the time. And we’re proud of it!

  1. Curonian, good morning from the far South America!

    Actually Slavegirl Isaura is a pretty accurate translation from the original name (Slave Isaura/Escrava Isaura): it was a brazillian soup opera that aired here on the 70’s an was a huge hit, having re-runs to this day.

    But we actually don’t speak spanish here, we speak portuguese. So here’s some info from far beyond the border.
