Lake Ilopango is a formed in the mouth of a dormant volcano. I went scuba diving there once, but on this occasion, it was a cruise amongst the water hyacinths. As you can see a friend dipped her feet in water making a little plume as we went along. I didn’t take a camera, instead using a Nokia feature phone – less than 1 megapixel- but like I said – I like it.
In a rash moment, I splashed out for VIP tickets to see Shakira and as a consequence, I was not that far from the stage. VIP feels like the wrong word. She was very popular at the time – i think “Hips Don’t Lie” had just come out.
But, it did mean that I could see what was going on without looking at a screen. It also meant that I could take ok pictures with my compact camera (a Fujifilm F30).
It was a nice concert. My impression was Shakira was very professional and everything went without a hitch.
