Hello!

This is a long overdue thank you to everyone I met at the Coachella campsite. I didn't really get to talk to or hang out with most of you, but like Patrick said, I have nothing but positive memories of all of you.

Coachella was a crazy, sublime, intense, overwhelming experience and I can't wait to come back and do it all over again!

Thanks again, everyone!

Guys I have been travelling like crazy after Coachella but finally I'm in the office.
Thank you so much for everything, it was really nice to meet you and you made the experience so much better.
I still have a few scratches from the battle but it was a hell of a experience.

Btw, I came back to Mexico in a pretty random way. After I said bye, I walked to the corner were supposedly you could get a taxi but when i got there I found this lady which was "organizing" every ride. I told her that I needed to get to the greyhound station and she told me to wait until one of her cars would come back and that she would charge me 35 USD. After that I found this Mexican guy who was kinda freaked out and told me that he didn't trust this girl cause she put him on a SUV where there where a couple of girls who were saying things like: "thank god this is not humman traffic" so he freaked out and left the SUV.
Then the lady told me that it wouldnt be possible to take me to the greyhound so this other Mexican guy stops a black SUV that was passing by and tell the driver: "please please help us we need to get to the greyhound" so the driver told us to get into the car. We got into the car which was packed, these things happened in less than 10 secs and I got in the car without knowing anyone nor where the driver could take us.
Thank God that the driver was a third generation Mexican and he drove us to the Greyhound for just 10 usd.
The amazing thing at the greyhoud is that it was really really nice: it had WiFi, electrical plugs and comfortable seats.
When we got to LA we were 7 people who were going to LAX and I called for a cab but some people were not willing to pay 15 usd for a ride to LAX so at then end it was just 4 of us who took the ride.

Anyway, it was a crazy experience and people are amazed how lucky I am and how nice were the people that I camped with.

thank you so much and if you ever go to Mexico please let me know.

I also want to say thank you to everyone who showed up and made CS Camp Coachella happen! It was truly awesome and cool to see Cser's come together, share, and help everyone have an awesome Coachella. I know I sure did! Wish I could hung out with all of you more! Didn't make it back to the campsite except for one time to get cold medicine. I was too enthralled with the music and festival land. It was grand! :-) Anything is possible so who knows maybe I'll see you next year! I had an amazing trip after the festival. I couchsurfed for the first time and my whole week was a dream! Yay Couchsurfing!

Cheers to all you! Hope you all have an amazing year filled with adventures and travel.
