So today we just faffed about today went to the bus station to get our ticket to Bolivia - we have a whopping 28 hours to get to La Quiaca on the Argentinan side eeek we will worry about that later.

So we got our carry out from the supermarket and had a few drinks before we went out - alcohol here is so cheap.  We jumped in a taxi and got to the desk "hi we are on Paul Oakenfolds guest list"  hehe sounds great.... got our VIP passes and headed in.

It was a huge outdoor venue again with a massive stage and dancers the lot, we headed to VIP for some free cocktails and pink champagne before heading into the crowd when Oakenfold came on.

Towards the end of his set we figured we will see if we can get backstage again - the stage was massive not like in Ushuaia but sure enough we wandered straight in and we headed up to the decks to say hi and get a pic taken - you couldn't stand beside him this time so we headed back downstairs but the view was amazing from up there - the sun was just coming up too - well cool.  He was delighted that we had made it all the way up from Ushuaia gig I am sure he must think we are mental.

Dressing room banter!
We were speaking to the video guy and his tour manager and they invited us back for drinks afterwards so next thing we know we are sitting with 5 other people and Oakey in his dressing room having beers chatting about all sorts - was so surreal.  He was sitting nudging Marc while they were taking the piss out of folk in the room and having total banter about football, the old days of the Courtyard and everything else inbetween.

After about an hour he had to leave - the hectic life of a superstar DJ eh - No pics were allowed in the dressing room it was time for him to relax without the cameras.

The unplanned afterparty 
So we headed back to the hostel and seeing as we were buzzing after a great night we headed up to the roof terrace which opened at 8am - the problem with dorms is you cant just chill in ur room.  Before we knew it we had a few other people join us and it turned into an all day drinking session - what a great laugh and made some fantastic friends

We stumbled to bed some time later - what a SUPERB night

Here is a link to the promo video - we are bouncing around at 1.56m
