These are my best holidays ever! (Or as American people say, my best “vacations”)
This weekend Lollapalooza’s Festival is being held in Chicago, at 50 metres from my residence.
Yesterday I could listen to Coldplay’s performance live from behind the stage, lying on the grass. Even being outside I felt I was the luckiest person in the world.
A video I’ve uploaded to youtube where you can watch the emotive ending of the concert, awesome.
The baseball match two days ago was great!
We had very good seats and the environment was amazing. It’s very different from the football matches in my country. I was surprised because people didn’t shout all time; there were music and lights instead.
Each time one team changed the batter (the majority of them latin) there was a video played on the screen introducing him. When for example a player called Alejandro scored a home-run the sound was Gaga’s song “Ale Alejandro”, and so on.
Even more surprisingly for me was the division of the field, I had always thought the running area was bigger but it didn’t live up to my expectations as it only takes a quarter part. (They didn’t run very much either)
We didn’t get any ball but I could meet the mascot and a friend took me a photo.
My meal there consisted on nachos, chicken, lettuce, cheese and souce, all inside a baseball helmet 🙂
The match lasted more than 3h (we didn’t get bored) and the result was Yankees 18 – 7 WhiteSox
