So... it is mid-summer!
Last night I and mother, with other 190,000 people, enjoyed the big - about 15,000 - fireworks display on the waterfront. The event was beautifully planned, the last half of the fireworks were launched to the grand classical music.
Traditionally we don't play music when we enjoy fireworks for we enjoy their colour, big sound, shock wave, ...and the silence between the explosions. But last night's music & fireworks were wonderfully harmonised, we really enjoyed the great show.
I put some photos I took last night.
And I found the video on YouTube. Around 3:58 you may recognise Dvořák's "From the New World".
