It is less than 2019 because live performances violate CDC pandemic social limits - still $US105k ... you know the 10 lords a-leaping, etc. :biggrin:

I can't see the link, I think because I violate GDPR -General Data Protection Regulation-, but we also have restrictions to join at Christmas days. And yes, it will be cheaper here overseas.
