Guatemala City, Guatemala.
Ever since i saw the movie 'Body Guard," i thought it'd be cool to have a crew following you around packing heat and talking in code through ear pieces and hand helds. The moment we left the airport, we were apart of an entourage. Big dudes, with "security options." So too began the autographs and pictures. betta dig deep in your coat pocket for that travel size Spanish Dictionary, you're gonna need it!
Flying makes one famished and Tacointendo makes people content, thus "the happy taco." Picture anything you want on a tray, carne asada, pollo asada (i think), chorizo.... and much more all holding hands with salsa verdes, guacamole and cotija cheese. In come the Mariachis and Chad starts singing! Tacos and Verbrato were flying all over the place.
The show day was filled with a meal every 2 hours and some of warmest smiles. Friendly, friendly people. There was a press conference in a restaurant that also doubled as an aquarium. Let me foreshadow...you can scuba with the sharks, no joke...that outta suffice until a podcast can explain much further!
This was a pretty epic show. The crowd was so loud that i could hear them outside of the venue, over the thumping bass tones. Every song had a heartfelt 3500 person chorus.
IJM made a presence tonight next to the SFOOT merch booth and it was really cool to get caught up with what's happening in terms of social reform in Guatemala.
Volcanoes' were in bloom and their smoke trailed off from the cones into the clouds. Pretty amazing cite from a hotel room. Guatemala te ama.
