After about 24 hours of traveling we finally reached La Paz, Bolivia ! We arrived after midnight local time and I was pretty surprised, or maybe shocked about the temperature – 0 degrees celsius !!!! Much colder than in Sweden ! 😀
The rehearsals went fine. Infor the last one we slept over at Christofers place, Villa Aduruna to get started before noon. It´s so nice and quiet out there at the countryside. I love it !
The flight from Stockholm took off so early in the morning that it was no use to go to bed, so I didn´t sleep anything. So for the first time in years I got some sleep on the airplane ! Lori was not with us this time for the rehearsals since she lives in the U.S. She comes over to Bolivia straight from there.
I´m so excited to once again come over here to Latin America and play ! 🙂 Therion has its biggest audience here so it´s very appreciated that we come over.
The first day here in Bolivia some fans were hanging outside the hotel. Two of them, Daniel and Angela took us with for sightseeing around the city. La Paz is very beautiful ! And now the temperature was around 20 degrees and the sun was shining ! So hot in the sun that I preferred to walk in the shade !
In the afternoon we had a press-conference at the hotel. In the evening Thomas and I went to a Therion pre-party. I was stunned and overwhelmed by the reaction when we entered the club: People directly stood up, shouted and cheered “Therion-Therion-Therion” !!! After a couple of hours Christian also appeared. We are really being treated well here and people everywhere are so nice.
Now I´m looking forwards to the first show !
