This NYE was one of the best ever.
Like keen beans, Sadie and I went into town (Zürich central) early. We took photographs of the Christmas lights, drank Glühwein, and found ourselves dancing inside a latin music tent to keep warm. By 10pm we’d decided we were keen to keep dancing, but in our pyjamas, surrounded by cats, and preferably whilst watching the BBC’s coverage of Hogmanay, so we headed home to Glattpark. We weren’t terribly bothered about missing the fireworks.
When we got home, there were lots of explosions going on outside. And at midnight, we thought we’d better head out and take a look.
And this is what we saw.
So we DIDN’T miss the fireworks! We had our own private show. It was very dangerous but mostly very exciting to have people setting them off only metres away from us! I loved it.
I’ve done something a bit different with the footage – I’ve done a composite, and the fireworks footage is playing in reverse, as is the score, which definitely has Eternal Sunshine vibes.
Here’s to 2017! And 319 more films. Eek.
