CNN is awful without Kathy.

Torture.

Rio de Janeiro should be next but I don't know what is going to happen there.
It’s going ahead

It is hard to find a transmission of Rio. Euronews sometimes carries it.

Kelso monitoring station is now closing down. Its been a looong day!

Thabks to all our contributors for your comments & insights. This annual tradition helps me immensely - Ive never lreally liked NYE, so having the chance to have a laugh on the forum, sup a few beers & see what we can find around the world every year is great fun. The last 2 NYE's have been very strange thanks to the covid nightmare - lets hope things get back to something approaching normal soon!

Raise a glass of whatever is your preferred poison. The toast is

Same procedure next year??
:-rofl2

Yah - Im pleased you came back with the correct reponse!


True story - a few years we we staying in Bavaria in a nice little hotel in Bechtesgarten. One evening at dinner the very harrased waiter was passing our table and muttered to himself
"same procedure as last year"
:-respekt

He was absolutely astonished when the strange English bloke with the broad Midlands accent came back with
"same procedure as every year"

:-bighappy:-congrats

Sky News's coverage was interesting to say the least. Glad I didn't watch it live

It is a pity you didn't get it on video you could have been a social media hit!!!

You could have played it back every NYE :D

Had to switch to a Reuters YouTube stream but after 7 minutes it froze and the quality quickly degraded (not my end, theirs)

That's the thing with Chasing Midnight you have to have a backup incase a stream fails or a channel doesn't show it or all of it.

My biggest regret this year is not being able to see Taipei's display
