My favorite picture of the night
Before this year I never really liked electronic music. I always thought it was kinda annoying (oon tis oon tis oon tis oon tis...). I was introduced to a local Emonton DJ, Luke Morrison, who plays house music. After listening to his cd´s and also downloading some of his promo music off his website ( I slowly gained an appreciation.

Carolina and I were driving to work one day and she pointed out a Paul Van Dyk poster. I had no idea who he was, but apparently the number 1 DJ in the world was coming to Belo Horizonte. Luis from work is a HUGE electronic music fan. Him and a friend flew to São Paulo to see Paul Van Dyk, they partyed all night then came back the next morning. I told him I was interested in going so he got me a ticket.

These shows start late and end early. Paul´s set wasn´t until 3am and lasted until almost 6am, but it´s worth it because the environment they creates is intense. The music is high energy and with all the people there it makes for a good time.

I thought it would never happen, especially coming from such a rock and country place like Alberta, but Electronic music has definitly grown on me.

This guy came out of no where and befriended me, introducing me to all his friends saying if I need anything just ask, giving me his phone number etc... Just another example of how friendly Brasilians are
