Best Wednesday night ever! [weekly photo challenge: foreign]

25 Oct

We’re all foreigners here in Bolivia… most of us, from the USA, some coming from mixed-culture parents, one from New Zealand, one from Brazil (myself!). But this event brought us all together, as one ‘party nation’, enjoying another foreigner’s performance (he’s Cuban-American).

Several nations under one roof (correction, there wasn’t really a physical roof, since we’re at a soccer stadium!) – were we really foreigners at that moment? Frankly speaking, even though we had different languages being spoken around us, the passion for music (and fun!) transcends all borders… We went from being totally foreigners to feeling completely at home! 😮

Backstory: Armando Christian Pérez (born January 15, 1981 in Miami, Florida), better known by the stage name Pitbull , is a Cuban-American rapper signed to his own label, Mr 305 Inc. The Give Me Everything (Tonight) Songfacts reports that he adopted his canine moniker because, “They bite to lock. The dog is too stupid to lose. And they’re outlawed in Dade County. They’re basically everything that I am. It’s been a constant fight.”

Once in a while, it’s good to feel like an adult, again… In great company, we could enjoy a fun and safe presentation, with the so-called… Pitbull!

Rent a Party Bus! – check!

Buy the Super VIP tickets [oh, so worthy… It does feel great to be so close to the stage!] – check!

Call and confirm the baby sitter for our 3 children – check! [thankfully!] 

Group of over 10 adults trying to get back into the ‘fun scene’ (even if it’s only for a couple of hours!), totally organized and in full gear – check! check! check! 😮

Whatever reason he’s got for his life choices, I don’t really care… Just had a fantastic time at his concert! 😮

      He’s fantastic! Despite the tiredness and the ‘lack of adjustment’ to the high altitude/low Oxygen, the guy is unique… What a show… great stage performance, great empathy…. I’m so glad we went with a large group, got super VIP tickets, to be a few feet away from the stage… [I’m so obnoxious right now, that’s hard to stand myself… 😮 but I believe, here and there, one has to pamper itself with good entertainment, right?] Thanks for stopping by and sharing your comments!

    I’m jealous too! Glad you had fun and a group to ‘go wild’ with! Got to spend one night in Costa Rica dancing til dawn, not Pitbull Live, though. From the experience I must say that the next day is exhausting BUT so very hard to stop smiling regardless! Hope the smiles on your faces made up for the daze. 🙂

      They absolutely did! And funny enough, today (i.e. the day after) it was blood drive day at work (taking advantage of the upcoming Halloween, and helping the Red Cross out) day! You imagine… but the smiles were there! Thanks for stopping by and checking the post out! 😮

      It was a lot of fun…. we were a bit concerned, since it was a week night, and everyone had to be up early the next morning… but he (Pitbull) put on a great performance (despite the lack of adjustment to the high altitude and low Oxygen!). We all had a great time… well-deserved! 😮 Thanks for stopping by and checking the photos out!

          It’s true! He wasn’t totally out of breath, but one could tell when he was struggling… especially at the end.. the guys would not stop! On his way out of Bolivia, at the airport, he gave a brief interview, mentioning he “loved the country, but needed more oxygen!!!” but he put on a fantastic show! I was breathless, from dancing!! 😮
