Grease anno 2014

Back in January, my parents and I went to the musical version of Grease. I was so excited about it. What I didn't know was that this was a seriously modernized version of Grease : The Arena Spectacular. I gotta admit, I was kinda disappointed. As the biggest Grease fan ever, I'm obsessed with every little detail. So you can only imagine my frustration when I found out that the musical only follows the big lines of the movie : goodbye 50's costumes! But not everything was bad. Sandy (Mexicana Lorena Peril) is an amazing singer and dancer. My other favorite was the Italian girl who played Rizzo. The biggest turn off? Danny Zuko. The new Danny Zuko can't sing and can't dance, HORRIBLE! I wouldn't recommend going to this musical if you're a big fan as myself. Otherwise, it's kinda entertaining.

 Personally, I prefer to forget this musical. To me, Grease still is the word. John Travolta was my first big Hollywood crush and I wanted to be Sandy so badly, up until this day ♥ And yes, I'm still convinced that Olivia and John had a relationship at the time! Just look at these photos, what a chemistry they have ♥ In my opinion, you can see when actors are having the time of their lives on set, and there's no doubt that the cast of Grease were a big family at the time! Triple threat cast, epic music and 50' costumes : Grease will always be my favorite ♥

México Day 17 : Turtles and crocodiles

On my last day, we went to a rescue center for turtles. It's so sad to see how turtles are becoming very ill because of us, human beings : poisoned, blind, mutulated turtles who are slowly dying. Thank god for this rescue centre that tries to save them, unfortunately with very limited resources. The giant turtle is such a majestic animal, it was the first time that I've seen one in real life.

Next up? Going on a little boat in a laguna to spot some crocodiles. I have to admit, I was so so soooo afraid. First of all, I fucking hate crocodiles. I don't trust them, I don't wanna see them, I don't even wanna know they exist. Secondly, Mexicans will do everything to take photographs and it makes them forget the danger. Every time we saw a crocodile, everybody in the boat was moving to one side, which almost made the boat go down. Fortunately I was screaming at the top of my lungs to bring them back to reality. Five times. I do have to admit that I've seen some pretty awesome things, but never ever I'll be back on that boat again. I have only one photo to show you where I don't look absolutely frightened :D It's one of my favorite photos from my Mexico trip ♥

After that, we went to the beach for the very last time, to enjoy the most beautiful sunset I've every witnessed in my life. All of the following photos are #nofilter ♥

These photos make me cry. That moment right there was so unreal, spent with my best friends. Miss them so much ♥

But what would a last night in Mexico be without a real fiesta mexicana? Nada! I have a huge obsession with Mexican skulls, calaveras. I was so happy when I found the most amazing graffiti art ♥

I love it when there are spontaneous dance parties in the street ♥

Finally, I wanna give a MAJOR shout-out to the Family Reyes, who treated me as one of their own. This is a major family throwback of them, how cool is this photo? ♥
