Yesterday, on the 16th of December, we (the German volunteers) reaped the fruits of weeks’ of hard work. Since the second week of our arrival to beautiful Laos we have been meeting for rehearsals at the German embassy. With some great extra effort of our musicians Julia and Sandro we managed to become fabulous singers and a notable addition to the international “Mekong Polifonia” choir, which is led by Marie Guillot, the ambassador´s partner. More than 300 people from many different countries gathered at the Sacré-Coeur Catholic church in Vientiane for the Xmas concert and heard a great variety of fine Christmas songs from all over the world. The final song, “We wish you a Merry Christmas”, was sung by the whole crowd. At the end, it slowly faded away just to make room for ear-piercing standing ovations. A great evening which was topped off with delicious mulled wine and sausage buns.
