At 6:30, we got on our buses and went into town. The church has large sliding doors on three sides, which allowed the evening breezes to flow through.
After days of sweat, dirt and funky clothes, I've gotta say our kids clean up good. Each group had a chance to warm up before the mass. During communion, the Mads sang. Totally lovely.
The acoustics were great. After an hour-long service, the 400+ people in attendance (not including us) stayed for the performance. The kids were so well received. It was a great first venue.
We are leaving our first hotel this morning. The kids will be performing in a school en route to our next location — the BEACH! They're all wearing the bathing suits under the clothes in anticipation.
I apologize for not having sent any photos yet. The internet connection here is a bit "sketchy". It seems to manage text just fine, but doesn't like to upload photos. Perhaps it'll be better at the next location.
