Couldn't say I noticed any dirty looks. I was more surprised to learn that prostitution was legal in Costa Rica (it became quite obvious walking on a few San Jose streets...).Marley05 wrote:sparky1231 wrote:Just got back to Philly after a week in Costa Rica. Seeing Pearl Jam in another country was a cool experience for sure. You guys have a beautiful country. Coming back to cold and dry Pennsylvania was kind of a bummer.
As for the crowd, the pushing and shoving on Mike's side in the Alive section, although fun for a minute or two, quickly become a nuissance. It was probably a mistake to think my 5 ft wife could handle the beatings, but lesson learned. I think we just had some bad luck and ended up in one of the sections that was over the top. We also felt very unwanted as we walked through the streets of San Jose and around the venue. Lots of dirty looks and stares. Not complaining, just thought it was kind of strange.
I actually didnt mind seeing the greatest hits set list as it was actually fun watching the reaction of the crowd. First time seeing Oceans, so that was nice as well.
Moshing or not, the "Go" opening was intense and something I'll never forget.
We were on Stone's side and had the same thing...including people streaming over the banisters on the sides and running/jumping over me up to the front. I'm 5'4" and I honestly got pretty scared and made the trek to the back...where I could see, hear and move around.
I'm pale and blonde so I totally understand the stares but, we had the best luck around the stadium before the show, in-line and after the show, folks were quiet but after our initiation people were super friendly.
Prostitution is NOT Legal in my country
It is just not persecuted as from you come from but that does not make it legal, you can smoke pot almost anywhere but that does not make it legal either. Let's say that is part of our freedom.
