After the concert, it was 1:30am. The boat was ready to leave as soon as we all arrived from the concert. The 3 men were very talented. The tenor singer sang in English, Swedish and Norwegian. It was well done. I passed out at 3am. We had no plans for tomorrow till 4:30pm. We are doing the “sea eagle safari.” I am looking forward to that.
