The Nutcracker

The day after Christmas Pablo and I were able to go see The Nutcracker live at El Teatro Municipal in downtown Santiago. It´s this super old theater that is really neat and I´m sure when it was built it was something else! But, now it´s a bit old and without air conditioning...
We didn´t want to spend a lot of money on the tickets so we bought the cheapest ones thinking it wouldn´t be too bad of seats. Talk about nose-bleed seats...actually, we didn´t even have a seat, but a bench, on the 4th floor, on the side. Yeah. We had to climb up 4 floors of stairs and then were shoved in the corner--but it was worth it! The show was awesome and Pablo loved it. His eyes were glued to the stage the whole time! And he did say that he thought we each lost about 10 pounds just sitting there in the hot theater!
