The back of their shirts said.......First Lesson Free. Probably good for them b/c I'm not sure who would have paid:)
Support your local drag queen!
The rest of our crew:)
The "mini-bar" backpack ROCKED!
I'm Proud to be an American!
So Nathan basically had the camera the whole time but here are a few of him too! I don't think he wanted any "evidence":)
Go ahead - get on stage - they WANT you to!
What IS that?
The people watching was some of the best I've EVER seen! Wow! It's amazing what people will leave the house in! I mean REALLY? REALLY? Actually I'm REALLY grateful b/c I have some AWESOME pictures and great memories for the rest of my life! :) It was basically like Mardi Gras on steriods with lots of Techno Music! Oh - and it was actually peaceful! They claimed it would be on the "Official Street Parade" website but, with all those people, pouring down rain, bouncers that kept backing us up away from the "lovemobiles", lots of alcohol, and I'm guessing a fair amount of drugs - I couldn't believe there wouldn't be any fighting, but I didn't see a single altercation! I guess they were right - Techno Musik does bring Love and Peace!:) Here is some of the "Love and Peace" we experienced:
This lady was "riding" a flamingo:)
Really? Well at least she had on most of her clothes....
Best use of a triathalon belt - cigarettes and mini bottles!
Not sure what they are supposed to be.....
AnnMarie - this one is for you!:)
Speaking of the Lovemobiles - Nathan got some good video! The Lovemobiles were basically "floats" designed by all the clubs in Zurich. I'm not sure how many there were but they started at 1 pm and were still going at 8 pm when we left the parade for the after party!
The Pirate themed Lovemobile coming through! Yeah - the people do get out of the way:)
Here is one video:
I just love this group photo but I don't think any of us remeber taking it:)!
There were a bunch of parties/concerts after the parade and we picked the one at the Main Train Station. Nathan and I didn't last very long though and although it is a huge debate on what time we got home (neither of us quite remember) I think it was around 10 pm.
The dance lights kind of messed with the pics but you get the idea.
L is for "Loser" b/c we were headed home!
Surprisingly though we were up by 9 am and ready to take on the world - okay not the whole world but at least our living room:) Total veg day (and I haven't been outside...yet) but no headache and no hangover! Yeah!!!! We might be over 30 but we can STILL party! Whoop Whoop~mandy
