This evening we had a lovely reception with the cruise director and other speakers and entertainers who will be working these next 2 weeks. I was completely star struck as Mark Horton of BBC's 'Coast' is one of the speakers. I am a huge fan of his, mainly for his warm personality on the programme. He is a lovely man with a great sense of humour. I may even try and get to his talks if I can!
Our first concert is on Sunday which gives us a few days to settle into ship life and rehearse. The air conditioning on the flight has played havoc with my throat so hoping things settle down in the next few days. Tomorrow I hope to see the elephants in Pinnawela - that's if I don't sleep in!!
