      I went to Sannat and was seated at 5 to 8 pm. Few minutes later they got in line and began to sing. Just a couple of bars and sat down. It was only a rehearsal. I waited, watched the MC walking around, equipment being installed and said to myself ‘This is going to be a long wait’ so I left at 20past. I am sorry I missed it because the choir sounded great but lack of punctuality makes me dizzy.

      I went back and I utterly enjoyed it. Thank you, but it would have been better if started in time.
