Guys, I know that sometimes one is impatient, but I won't be able to get them done before the end of February, sorry.
No problem Aileen (just wanted to have some infos, not the videos immediately), people can be impatient, so true..but people can also understand other people...and we'll do this.
No way to complain you now...after all you have done before!
At least for me, this is sure.

Getting ready for NYE party
Celebrating NYE in ‘Die Mumu’
We got up early at 8 o’clock in the morning (being woken up by Scarlet ). While we got ready Nadine (YuliaBaby) called us that we would not meet up in Brühl because the plans had been changed and we would meet up in Cologne. One hour later we took the bus to Neuss. After our arrival we bought something to eat at the “Backwerk” heading to the main station to take the train to Cologne. We arrived at 10:46 am, Nadine and Jess told us they’d arrive at 11:59 am, so we tried to overcome the boredom with walking around in the main shopping street of Cologne in the cold. And yes, it really was cold. One hour later we made our way back to the main station of Cologne to welcome Nadine and Jess. They didn’t know that Flo was with me, that was a surprise we’d planned just when it was sure he would be in Cologne for NYE. We were quite excited because we hadn’t seen them in a while, Flo didn’t meet Jess before, and well. Unfortunately, Jess and Nadine had some problems and so they weren’t able to arrive in time. One hour later we came back again, Flo hid behind an information sign and I welcomed them both when they arrived. After that I told them I had an surprise for them and Flo came out from behind the sign showing up. Their reaction was kinda cute. Jess was like ‘I knew it! I knew it!.” and Nadine couldn’t believe it at all. The four of us decided to go the Hilton hotel in Cologne where t.A.T.u. stayed years ago. The atmosphere was excited and just awesome, we were laughing, screaming and talking all the time. In front of the hotel we couldn’t stop talking about insiders, including the imagination of Parviz as the perfect bodyguard in front of the hotel. At 1.20 pm we left the street and walked back to the Cologne cathedral where Flo and I had been several times on that day already to wait for all the other t.A.T.u. fans who we were supposed to meet at 1.30 pm. We sat on some “stone bench” together with Nadine’s dog ‘Lena’. Nadine began to play Obyez’anka Nol and the dog began to whine and ‘sing’ to that song, it was hilarious. Everybody was looking at the dog in an amused way. After some time we decided to call Aileen because they hadn’t arrived at that moment and it was already ‘quite late’. She told us they’d be there in a short while and soon we made our way to the place in front of the main station and met Aileen (the_little_ONE), Odette, Anneke, Joost and Rabie (Tourniquet). They welcomed us cordially and soon the others arrived, too. At the end we were fifteen people. Several photos were made and videos were taken and we already could see that it would be a lot of fun. After a short while we made our way to the Cologne cathedral and those who hadn’t been in there before entered it, Jess, Nadine, Flo and I waited outside. Afterwards there were group photos being taken by a kind man who proved that Volkova isn’t the only one who hasn’t improved her technical skills, hahaha. Many of us were still quite tired and cold and so we decided to drink a coffee at the Hard Rock Café of Cologne. So we walked through the main shopping street of Cologne that was kinda crowded just to get to know that we were just too many people to be able to sit at one table in the Café. Some of us bought a coffee to go at the café across the street. The most of the fifteen t.A.T.u. fans wanted to go to the Rhine and later visit the ‘Chocolate Museum’ of Cologne but Nadine, Jess, Flo and I decided to leave them alone for a short while because we hadn’t really eaten a lot and were hungry and we also weren’t really interested in a chocolate museum. McDonalds was way too crowded but fortunately we found a place to sit down, spent a lot of money for food and ‘chilled’ there for a while. Afterwards we still had some time left, walked back to the main station before heading to the Rhine river and walking around a bit. When we arrived at the ‘Chocolate Museum’ at 4.40 pm the others were still inside the building so we sat down on a bench in the cold because we couldn’t enter the building with Lena. We were freezing a lot but were amused by watching little children tripping, falling down and people jumping up the stairs. It was quite interesting to see. At about 5.15 pm the others were ready and we made our way along the Rhine at 5.30 pm. Then we had the idea to play some t.A.T.u. music, so I began to play Running Blind with my mobile phone. Flo and I were singing along, Jess and Nadine joined soon and also Arno and later some more. A few minutes later we stopped at a lighted Information-‘Center’ and I changed to Not Gonna Get Us. Aileen began to take a video of it and soon all of us were singing Not Gonna Get Us in public. People were staring at us, obviously, but we didn’t care. All The Things She Said followed and also a bunch of other songs that were all recorded. We had so much fun singing and forgot about the cold until we couldn’t really move anymore. It felt like my toes were completely frozen and I had problems to move my legs and go forward at all. The French people and Rabie left and Anneke, Odette and Sabine wanted to eat at a restaurant. So we said goodbye to them and Joost, Daniel and Aileen came with Nadine, Jess, Flo and I to keep us company until our trains came. First we said good-bye to Nadine and Jess heading for Koblenz together with Lena. And 5 minutes later also Flo and I had to say bye to the three people that were left of us at the station. We sat down in the train, exhausted and frozen. All in all, we can say that this day was awesome and actually a lot of fun. It was really cold but that didn’t change our mood at all, it basically was a great experience and interesting to be able to put a face to some international forum members. We hope we can meet each other soon again, maybe even at a t.A.T.u. concert, that definitely would be magnificent.
I am very satisfied with this one! I had a really great time and I'm glad I pushed myself to go. I had to spend the first day in bed because I felt so sick, and even on the second day I couldn't be my full self because I needed to recover. Everybody made sure I was alright and made me feel better. Yesterday was my best day because I felt better, I had such a great time from am to pm! All in all I met some really great people and am already excited for the next meeting.
I spent an amazing time with you guys, it was really fun! Finally to get to meet you all was what I was really looking forward to it! And all of you are amazing I'll definitly be there for the next meeting! Joopy lovelly, the stranger guy was hilarious LOOOL !! Yesterday was definitly my fav one too, Fantasia Land and Die Mumu Gawd now I'm the one who's got a cold x_x thank god I got it at the end though. Big thanks to Aileen for the organisation !! To bad we didn't get to sing t.A.T.u. songs at the Karaoke bar, (damn those folders ) still some of us managed to get speacial treatments from the lady.
Well I'm back home and I miss everyone already I've had such a great time in Cologne! We did so many things: sightseeing, went to the chocolade museum, Phantasialand, going out for diner/drinks, visited a karaokebar and of course celebrated NYE in a bar. I've seen some old friends and met some new people. It was amazing :)Thanks to everyone who came to Cologne! And a special thanks to Aileen for organising all of this. You did a great job!
Back home and tired after our trip which was great! I had a wonderful time with the "old gang" and with the "new" people I never met before. All such nice people, tatu really has the best fans in the world.
Hopefully we'll meet each other soon!
It was so great...oh gosh...I didn't want to come back home at all.
Ok, so let's start:
1) Thank you, thank you and thank you again Aileen, for all the organization. You were really great and prepared for everything. You took care about us and I appreciated a lot. It's not easy to think about what to do, what to skip and what to change...
2) WE were a great group! Nobody can say the opposite...
I had so much fun hanging out with you.
3) t.A.T.u. were with us everywhere. For example it was funny to sing aloud t.A.T.u. songs while walking back to the hotel.
Ohhh...when the club played Ne Ver Ne Bosya.
4) Thank you so much for the videos and all the pics...you know, stupid me, I forgot the camera!
Spasiboooo for those EXCELLENT days.
I feel so sad now that I'm back home. We had the most amazing time in Cologne! It was super to see everyone again and to meet Anne-Julie, Elza, Kotenok, Flo and Brody! t.A.T.u. really does connect people!!!
So many new unforgettable moments! The best one was the guy trying to take our group pic and holding the camera the wrong way, gosh I laughed so hard, I still laugh when thinking about it... the pic of his face... Hilarious!!!
Sabine and Odette OMG how much fun can one have with a candle? And that for hours on end haha. I'll never look at a candle the same way!
The chocolate museum was very interesting and Phantasialand was soooo much fun!! Aileen you really did an amazing job orginizing this trip!!
And last but not least, yesterday evening was amazing!!! The best night out ever! The club was cool, but what made it fantastic was the amazing company! Guys, you all ROCK!! And I'll never forget when NVNBNP started playing, did we rock that club or what? And ATTSS was amazing too!!
Hey guys, it's me, Flo. Haha, who else could it be, right? I'm still at Inga's place and tomorrow I'll leave early in the morning. I just want to say that this t.A.T.u. meeting was a lot of fun and I enjoyed every minute with you guys! Unfortunately I was so shy that's why I wasn't really talkative, but next time it'll be better, haha. The day in cologne was a great experience, because it's always so interesting to see people from the internet in real life. Sure, you see some pics of them in the internet, but it is SO much nicer to see them in real life. You're all really cute, nice and awesome. I felt so comfortable with you. We really have to repeat that! Can't wait for t.A.T.u. concerts in 2009 (hopefully) so we can see each other again!
Thanks for that great day, thanks for the organisation (especially to Aileen) and well what else can I say? t.A.T.u. rock and so do t.A.T.u.'s fans!
Okay, I would like to thank everybody for making this a wonderful trip and thank you so much for your warm words, your gratefulness and passion. I am very happy that everything went MORE or less smoothly and that we had fun and everybody enjoyed most of what we have done AND that everybody got home safely. I will write some more thoughts later on.
OMG, it was really really and totally awesome!!
I didn't want to come back home at all too =)
It was so great to meet you all. We were a great group.
You were all very nice and lovely I had a lot of fun with you.
The new year's eve in the club was so so great! It was an unbelievable moment when the club played ATTSS & NVNBNP. We were so excited and glad
I'm really excited to see videos you took with your camera Aileen; ATTSS, NVNBNP,.etc.. but take your time
Thank you everybody for making this party/meeting so amazing.
