... tombs were located in a tumulus. This was something that I had never seen before. This tomb was in and under the hill. The way I related this to my prior knowledge was connecting it to the pyramids of Ancient Egypt. The museum and the tombs were one of the most interesting parts of the trip.

I am grateful that we got the sing there, it was a chance of a lifetime. We headed back to the hotel after this ...

Oh hi there Paul's Prison

A travel blog entry by krackenrod1888

... amazing…at least the men did. The women have seemed to be struggling when the song first and dropping the pitch what felt like a whole step. With Samantha not being able to sing, the sopranos simply seemed to be struggling. The recording did get better the longer we sang the song.
