Mexico City pre-show - Meetings, meetings. Preparations followed by a David Lynch style karaoke.

Mexico City. Slept late, then got up and headed in to see the venue. I'd seen photographs, so I had the general idea, but you never really know till you see it in the flesh. Its not ideal, but it'll be OK. The place is extremely wide, and the stage is set back a long way from the grandstands, which makes for a lot of open space, which might look weird or just be a black hole on TV. Many meetings ensued, of course, and ended up having dinner in the crew hotel, before a nightcap in the hotel bar where there was an Mexican entertainment group, on a stage surrounded by illuminated reindeer, singing a Karaoke version of The Sound of Music, all done without a trace of irony.
