Delegation hosts Ronald en Marianne – Malta


The hosts for the delegation from Malta are Ronald and Marianne. They have no special connection with the country, although Ronald has been on holiday there on occasion. Marianne has become curious because of this adventure. “The language is also very special, I can’t get a grip on it. For example, they use a lot of xs!”

Ronald thinks the Eurovision Song Contest is really cool. “I’m in between jobs, so that worked out just right for the volunteer job.” So what attracts him to the music event? “Of course you will never like all forty songs, but the festival and the atmosphere transcend it.”

Marianne is first and foremost a Rotterdam fan. “It’s my city,” she says. “I think it’s great to see how the city is in the spotlight. Especially now that there is such a big festival here. Let all foreigners see what we have to offer here.”
