Santiago, Chile, Day Off

21.2.08 Santiago, Chile, Välipäivä.






Aijjai. Saavuttiin Chileen. Talvihan kai täälläkin on, mutta keli oli ihan jees. (No siis täällä on kuulemma oikeesti kesä, ollaan katsokaas ihan kokonaan toisella puolella palloa..)Vietettiin oikea vapaapäivä. Periaatteessa käytän tuota ”välipäivä”-termiä ihan sen takia, että oikean vapaa-päivän viettäisin mieluusti kotona, enkä yksin hotellissa. No mutta, kelien puolesta tätä voi jo pitää vapaa-päivänä, eikä ”välipäivänä”...Käytiin poikain kanssa vähän hotellin uima-altaalla. Sauna oli oikein mukava ylläri, semminkin kun oli oikein 70-80 asteiset löylyt. Parit limpparit siihen päälle, ja kyllä kelpasi.



Huomisen keikalla on sitten hiukka enemmän porukkaa, mitä ollaan tähän asti totuttu, sellaiset 3000 about. Varmaan tulee olemaan enemmänkin.






Fanejakin alkoi kerääntyä hotellin pihaan jo aamusta alkaen. Hotellissa työntekijätkin ottivat lapsilleen nimmareita meiltä. Välillä vähän hävettää resupekkana pyöriä viiden tähden hotelleissa pisnesmiesten joukossa. Ei voi toki valittaa kolmen viikon bussirundin jälkeen..
Paikallinen ”perämoottori”, eli promoottori tarjosi illallisen. Saatiin lahjuksiksi joka jätkä tuollaiset nimikoidut Sonata-mukit ja –sytkärit. Juomiakin tarjottiin oikein miehekkään kokoisissa ”astioissa”. Valomiehemme Punky saapui nyt mukaamme kiertueelle juuri sopivasti lihapatojen ääreen. Huomista odotellessa. Nyt kauniita unia...






02/21/08 Santiago, Chile, Day Off






Oh my god..It´s winter here but still the weather is like in the summer. (Ok, I got this information that it is really a summer here this time of year. I don´t know these things. In Finland we only have winter. The summer is like 2 months per year. And it´s like in winter but a little less snow!)We had rooms in a 5 star hotel. There was a pool in the hotel and we of course headed there. And the sauna was really good surprise too! Couple of beverages afterwards…






About tomorrow´s show, there will be about 3000 screaming fans. A little bit more that we´ve had on this tour so far.






The fans were gathering to the hotel already early in the morning. BTW: Thanx for the drawings, we got them..The employees of the hotel asked for autographs from us for their children. Sometimes I feel little bit stupid in these five star hotels surrounded by these business men. But you know, I can´t really complain after a long and sweaty 3-week bus tour. And the dinner was on the local promoter. We got these Sonata mugs and Zippos as a present. And the drinks came also in good size. Our light technician Punky arrived from Finland and was with us just in time for dinner. A large one…Waiting for tomorrow´s show..Now Kauniita Unia everybody..

Good that you finally got a better (warmer) surroundings and accomodation :) And perhaps South American people will deliver a really warm welcome to you!

Sonata Mugs are really cool! Really unique and a pleasing souvenier.

Hope to meet you at Tuska, BTW :)
