As with most restarts it seems to have got a bit stuck and is taking longer than expected… the enthusiasm of the early days seems now to be waning.
There has been a carnival atmosphere at most of the demonstration sites, with food, live bands, market stalls and these demonstrators are FASHIONABLE! Whistles, hats, t-shirts, colours. John Galliano would approve of what seems to be the most colourful demonstration in the world.
The atmosphere has been friendly – definitely more Glastonbury than Kiev! Travellers who stayed away missed out on a unique experience.
