... In the afternoon we have a little wander around. In the evening we go out and stop at the first Italian restaurant we come to just a few doors up.

It is a strange mix of ancient songs and language and Germanic hymns, coupled with a visual display from the Hermannsburg mission. The concert is fantastic and quite moving.
