Groan! My legs still hurt from all the walking and climbing stairs and now this! I need a month or two away on some deserted island! With internet access of course. :D

Will let you know if I can make it for this one. Thanks for posting it here. :)
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

I'm keen

Hi there,

Sounds good, I have only been this country for a month, have not been to the Botanic garden, and love orchestra concerts!

So if you don't mind me tagging along, please do keep me posted!

Cheers :)

From experience, do come on time, as these concerts will attract literally thousands of people... Expect a lively audience, all packed on a small stretch. Cannot confirm it is a 'cool' place, at least not literally: As all sit so closely and it is in the midst of the gardens, this is a very hot and humid place.

But nevertheless, I loved it last time we went, nice experience!

On Sats, I am more interested in events after dark. The concert sounds good but too short for me as i dont know what to do after that. Hope this Sat I will have some easy and relaxed program after several weeks' heavy outings. What abt dinner, music and wine at home or beside pool which can happen after your concert?
