But what left the strongest mark for me was the unplugged concert on the beach in front of the resort with the lake and the African sunset as backdrops.
The birth process has been an interesting voyage of re discovering creativity. The first step into new directions. Sure the show is a very well known story and there is nothing Original about that.
