Food in Poland is very good, but it is also heavy. (It was the best borscht I’ve ever had, and the server was dressed like a princess.)

Roskilde in Denmark is the third best festival on earth and was the best show Pavement has played so far. (Best festival, you ask? All Tomorrows Parties. Almost all of them. Second best? Primavera in Barcelona.)

Yara Castanho is a bad ass.

Mark Ibold becomes a father while onstage in Nijmegen while the Dutch go on to the World Cup.

Grace Jones is a bad ass.

Cypress Hill was (surprisingly) great.
