EU fetes 'big bang' expansion as 10 more countries join
30 April 2004

The European Union expanded deep into eastern Europe at the stroke of midnight
Saturday (2200 GMT Friday) with the accession of eight ex-communist countries
and two Mediterranean islands.


The entry of Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania,
Malta, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia swelled the EU's ranks to 25 nations and
its population by 75 million to 455 million.

Prodi, feting an event that for many marks the definitive end to Europe's
Cold War divisions.

a crowd of 30,000 new Europeans gathered on the banks of Riga's Daugava
river.

so-called Singing Revolution of passive resistance against Soviet rule, when

Vilnius through Riga to Tallinn.

I don't know if you're watching the concert right now, Uldis May 1, 2004

but it's gorgeous...

and yes, the Baltic States' musical story was retold in a series of children's books that will be coming out soon in Canada.
