Los Angeles - Monterey

I joined the crew party to fly down to Mexico today. The band are going to stay in L.A. for a couple more days, but I really need to get to see the staging system as soon as possible as its been a while. We flew on Air Aviacsa, which was a first for me. Its been a very long time since I flew an airline Id never used before to a city Id never visited before, so the experience was vaguely exhilarating. It was an early start this morning and I was exhausted anyway having hit the ground running in L.A. Sadly though, I found I couldnt sleep - once again my body was flat out but the little guy in my head was bouncing off the walls. It was really most peculiar to experience jet lag whilst on an aeroplane, blasting through time zones in reverse direction.

With the time change we didnt get to Monterrey till after nightfall. It was going to be a while till the system in the stadium was ready so Bruce and I headed out to find some nosh. This looks like a nice part of town. We found good food then headed back to the hotel, discovering other members of our touring party propping up the bar. More reunions.

Word came through that we werent going to be able to get at the show system tonight, so I counted my blessings and hit the sack.
