Atlanta/Houston/Mexico city - Travel day

Atlanta/Houston/Mexico city - Travel day
Atlanta/Houston/Mexico city - Travel day culmination in an enthusiastic Mexican welcome.

A long, long day today. We got up in Atlanta & boarded a plane for Houston, where we did a show at the Alamo Dome. All the T.V. crew arrived too, director David Mallet, lighting consultant Allen Branton, and their team. After the show we all boarded the Lemon Air plane and headed for Mexico City, which is where this TV broadcast is going to be. It was a lengthy flight to do in the middle of the night, and we got in to Mexico City about 3 or 4am.

Despite the lateness of our arrival, there were fans waiting at the airport, who'd brought flags, banners, T-shirts etc. We got into our cars and buses, and set off into town. These kids proceeded to chase us down the freeway, hanging out of the windows, waving banners, screaming, taking photographs... it looks like this is going to be quite a week.
