Flight/ Monterrey, Mexico



























5.3.08 Lento/ Monterrey, Meksiko








Anivarhain lähdettiin taas kohti lentokenttää. Alkaa olemaan aika raskasta puuhaa joka päivä lennellä ympäriinsä. Lentokentällä huomio kiinnittyi blondiin, joka oli samalla lennolla meidän kanssa. Tuntui, että kaikki paikalliset kaksilahkeiset halusivat päästä samaan kuvaan neidon kanssa. No meidän Henrikkikin sitten rohkaistui pyytäämään päästä kaverikuvaan. Ajateltiin, että kai se on joku paikallinen saippuasarjatähtönen. Selvisi, että hän onkin joku playboy malli tahi vastaava...








Hotellille päästyämme käytiin shoppailemassa. Ostoskatu oli aivan hotellin tuntumassa. Fanejakin nähtiin kadulla muutama..Tultuamme takaisin hotellille otettiin muutama poikabändikuva itsestämme hotellin edessä..








Viimeksi oltiin Monterreyssa soittamassa puoli vuotta sitten ja nyt oltiin samassa paikassa soittamassa. Kuvassa paikallinen sähkötaulu. (ettei vaan sattuis mitään..) Mulle oli varattuna oikein hieno tuuletin lavalle. Oikein ”King of Fans”...








Keikan jälkeen hengähdettiin takahuoneessa, joka oli muuten hauskasti lavan alla. (Lavalle täytyi kavuta äärimmäisen kapeita kierreportaita. ) Oltiin ikäänkuin puoliksi kellarissa. Fanit alkoivat huutelemaan ja työntämään ikkunan rakosesta tarroja ym. nimikirjoitettavaksi..Hauska tilanne sinänsä.








No, lyhdyt sammuivat melko nopsaan hotellille päästyä..Mutta kivaa oli. Alkaa vaan väsy painamaan pikkuhiljaa..Huomenna viimeinen keikka.








03/05/08 Flight/ Monterrey, Mexico








We headed for the airport early in the morning. It starts to be tough flying around every day. At the airport in Monterrey we saw this blonde. A lot of men wanted to take picture with her. So our Henrik decided to go for the photo also. We were thinking this mystery woman might be some kind of soap opera star or something..But she was actually a playboy model or something. If anybody knows her name, let me know. I already forgot.








When we got to the hotel we went for shopping. We met some fans on the street as well. When we came back from our little trip we took some boy band photos of ourselves…
Last time we were in Monterrey only six months ago. Actually we were playing at the same venue also…I took a picture of local electricity board. Didn´t seem to be so safe…I had also a very nice fan on stage. The real “King of Fans”…








After the show when we were at back stage which was nicely situated below the stage. The fans started to scream and slide stickers etc. for us to sign..It was funny..








Well, we were really tired and when we got to the hotel it was soon time to go to sleep. Tomorrow will be the last show…

Wow!!! The last one! I did´nt had a clue! Guess it´s gonna be A show, ha? :)
And I saw an interview with you and Marko last night (It was awesome, btw:), and I´m very curious about the psp´s games that you´re playing! I already had one, but it was stolen :/ Now I have a Nintendo DS. It´s fun, bot not the same xD
So, if you want a tip (what I believe you don´t, but ok x), a reeeeally cool game is Lumines. It´s a colorful and musical Tetris! I played that for nonstop hours.
Thank you again,
The best for you all.
