And so agreed the skinny but agile little boy who had his father up dancing with him to every song - and called out MORE when Betsy finished her set. What a great father - and I told him so.
Even the UK TV offerings -- admittedly sparse in these days of cutbacks, but still energising -- fitted with this quirkiness.
... where to go. Not being able to read Russian didn't help. Some friendly young soldiers managed to cobble together enough English to get us to the right escalator to take us up to the right level and eventually to the right platform. Phew!
I have no idea when these people rest. Or how they maintain their enthusiasm and energy day after day, night after night.
I take my hat off to them.

We parked the car and chose a place to eat, enjoying a nice but slightly over-cooked Italian bistro lunch of gammon steak with grilled fresh pineapple, and pork loin with honey mustard cream sauce for a very reasonable £9 each. It was really a dinner portion, but we were up for it. After our re-fuel we walked over the bridge to the train station where we were treated to a Welsh Mans Choir singing. Up on ...
