There are pretty much no words to describe the awesomeness of tonight. But first, we'll start with the day.

We went to the National Slate Museum at Llanberis today. To be honest, it didn't sound very interesting to any of us at first, but once we got there it was actually quite fun. We saw a short demonstration of how to split and cut slate, which was great, due in large part to how hilarious the slate guys were. We then sang a few songs for the employees of the museum and the people who attended that day. They seemed to enjoy it. :)

We performed tonight at a church in Llanfairfechan with Cor Penryn. The concert went very well. It was our best yet, we think. However, the real fun lies in what happened after...

Cor Penryn invited us to a country club for "some conversations." Take from that what you will.
We spent about an hour in a little bar in a country club, drinks in hand for those who had them, singing loud Welsh drinking songs with one of the best male choirs in Wales. Doesn't get much better than that! I wish I got pictures of all this today, but we were in a rush to leave this morning and I forgot to take my memory card out of the computer. Sad sad. But it really was a great way to round off the week.

We're leaving for Manchester tomorrow, and we're stopping in a town called Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch on the way. There's a famous gift shop there called Pringles. But anyway, we're staying in Manchester for the night and then flying out at 10:30 on Sunday. Siiiiigh.
