Esurientes - The Comfort Zone

The Danes are coming!!!

The Danes are coming!! Yes, it sounds just like that Aussie phrase used by farmers in drought areas. That's why it's funny! Ahem. Well, I thought so. :-)
No, this has nothing to do with cartoons or disturbing violent protests but that fact that the Danish choir who hosted my group when we toured Europe in 2004 are coming to Australia, and we're hosting them here in Melbourne. I fully admit it was watching the royal wedding that prompted us to approach the Danish people (hey, we're going to be in the area. Want to organise some concerts for us? And can we stay in your homes? No, you don't know who we are... But we're Aussies and you love us at the moment!) and they showed us wonderful hospitality in the beautiful cities of Copenhagen and Odense. Yep, with an Aussie crown princess, we get along with the Danes very well!

In turn, they've asked us to reciprocate, and one of the boys I stayed with is coming to stay with me, which is true reciprocation! So I may be a bit busy showing them the sights of Melbourne, Castlemaine, Woodend, the Great Ocean Road and introducing them to good Aussie BBQs, fish'n'chips by the sea, sponge cakes and pavlovas etc.etc. for the next 5 days; hence there may not be too much blogging going on.
If you're interested, their concert details in Australia can be found via their home page. Sorry, you've already missed their gigs in Sydney, but there's still Melbourne, country Victoria and Canberra to go, if you want to come along and hear a great group. Those Danes can get pretty good looking too, you know..... ;-)


  • Sounds so much fun, Niki! We used to do that with my high school choir - I stayed with families in Finland and Sweden - and hosted singers from these countries at my place. I met lots of nice people this way:)
    Enjoy the Danish invasion!
