Latin American Tour Part II

by 10.10.12

Hey Sweets,

Our tour through Latin America was a huge success! So many fans came to visit us. It was unbelievable! I'm glad that we've made a picture at the end of each show. Like this I get to keep a wonderful souvenir.

Each and every show was amazing. We even conquered new land; Paraguay. We were only 8 hours in Paraguay and had to take off again unfortunately, but we did have a bloody good time there! We've received many gifts, artwork and had lots of meet and greets.

In these three and a half weeks I flew 19 times, had 14 shows and one free day.

It was a sensational tour filled with air-conditioned (fridge temperature) planes, immigration forms, churrascarias, co operative and less co operative hotels and last but not least, zillions of devoted fans.

Thank you for making us feel so welcome and remember that the greatest gift you can give us is by coming to our shows and letting us sign your Epica CD's and cassettes, I've seen one in Brazil!).

Amazing live shot.
I want this mirror. 
Waiting at airports. Eating apples.
Meet and greet.
Children's toilet. Too small for my Dutch bum.
More waiting at airports, apples and Samsung battery drainers.
Mini me. So cute!
Barbie Simons!
One of a kind. 
Drinks at the hotel.
Power food. Don't tell Mark.
Seriously, you guys spoil us too much! 
My favorite Epica video and movie combined.
Chocolate Death, Mexican style.
Flying over Sao Paulo.
10 Years have flown by so fast!
Me gusto mucho nacho!
Driving home, or maybe not.
