Wow, what a great week we had in Mexico. Thank you to everyone who came to see us in Leon, Morelia, and Puebla. We’ll be back! And very big thanks all the show producers and Aldo, our Manager in Mexico! This was by far the busiest of the several times I had played in Mexico before, having to travel several hours each day to get to the next city each day in time for interviews and soundchecks. We were lucky if we could get five hours of sleep each night. But the enthusiastic crowds each night energized us for some of our best performances yet.
Well, we’re back from our little Mexico tour, but we’re already making plans to go back and do some more cities. The response was amazing at every show, from both the fans and the press. We did TV, radio, newspaper, and magazine interviews every day. I can’t tell you how strange it is to be featured on the front page of the newspaper alongside Mariah Carey and Kim Basinger! Ryan says I’m a sex symbol in Mexico, and I can’t say I disagree. The boys seem to like me quite a bit more than here in America… I’ve never been kissed by so many different people in my life! But then again, people seem much more open and expressive in Mexico. Crowds are much warmer at the shows there in general, it seems. The three venues we played were all very different, with a different vibe, but all the shows went very well and I know that I gave the best performances that I ever have. I was inspired to give my all to the people. All in all, it was a crazy 4 days, but very good.

the nightlife information site antropolitan.com. The 3 page photo album includes concert pics, backstage shots, and crew and fan photos.
So we leave for Mexico tomorrow. We’ve had several last minute changes in venues and travel plans, so it’s been pretty crazy. Not sure if we’ll end up doing any of that promotion after all, since we’re travelling much later and arriving in Leon. Oh well! Hopefully plenty of people will show up, anyway. Our manager had asked for a video to use in commericals, but we don’t have one! It would be cool to make one sometime, though.
Hope I don’t get scared on the flight. I’ve been much better about flying since I’ve been with Ryan, but I bet if he weren’t there with me, I’d be terrified. I also hope that screening and such at LAX isn’t as huge a hassle as it was when we travelled for ProjektFest. I had to keep taking off my shoes and Ryan had to keep unpacking the guitar effects and explaining what they were. UGH. I heard it’s a bit more lax at LAX now, thankfully.
