March 11, 2010...Ben and I took a road trip to the beautiful, big city of Monterrey Mexico to see Coldplay in concert on this day. It was a Valentines gift from Ben and Coldplay is my favorite so it was the sweetest gift and the most amazing trip! We were lucky to be living in Texas with only an 8 hour drive away from Monterrey where Coldplay was playing the last concert of their Viva La Vida tour! We planned on a 3 day trip...just enough time to attend the concert...but fell in love with the city and sites and decided to stay much longer. It was worth it!
We had tickets for "standing room only," and they turned out to be the best tickets ever. Seriously. We arrived a few hours early to assure we got a good spot. We ended up right up against the fence that blocked off the cat walk stage. We were super close! I could practically touch, get eye contact, smell, even wink at Chris Martin as he danced and sang on the stage. ;)
Big Yellow balloons were thrown out into the crowd during the song "Yellow."
The band, Bat For Lashes, opened up for Coldplay...they were great, and 70's in every way.
My favorite part of the concert was when tons of paper butterflies filled the air. It was absolutely A-Mazing, especially with the music, and Chris Martin dancing around with an umbrella. I saved a few of the butterflies for my scrapbook. This really was an amazing experience I won't forget. Thank you Benjamin! :)
We toured downtown Monterrey. It is a busy, big, clean, and pretty city. We took a boat ride at the riverwalk which traveled through the city stopping at musuems and a really nice park.
We saw two movies at the theater...it was the best theater I've ever been to, with comfy reclining seats, and waiters serving food, even sushi!
We got a little crazy and adverturous this trip and went...
