MEeting Bono in 'the City of blinding Lights'

Hello hello

It's been a while now..but I feel like sharing the whole experience now...

October 10. I was in NY for the first time. Had arrived on the 6th, after a hard day, loosing a connection flight in London and British Airways loosing my lugage. But nothing is bad enough when you're in the USA to see the boys.

I had tickets for every night at the Garden, except for OCtober 10, so it was the day that promised the less...yet it became the best of days

We walked around the city the entire day...and gathered by the fence in the back of the venue around 5PM. We should go to the cancelation line, to try to get tickets. But we decided to stay in line. We waited...and waited..and I truly lost hope that the band could stop when they would arrive..cus it was so late. But..around 6.15PM...it happened...Bono arrived in the black car. There were more then 100 fans in the fence...and Bono started talking on my right...maybe 5 meters away from me..on the oposite direction. I couldn't be more frustrated. I had missed him..for 5 meters....! He spent like 15 minuts talking to fans, signing things and made the entire line. But after that..against all odds...he came back...and started at the very same place...now torwards US. We were like 20 in our side, not more, and thank God, everyone was very calm so all went well.

I have been writting poetry for some time..and before I left to NY, I made a book with me poetry. 102 pages of something very very personal...and very inspired in U2. So I really wanted to give it to Bono. When he eas coming closer....I stretched my hand..and he stood looking at the book , and asked: 'What's this?. I then explained what it was...(and by now he already had the book on his hands, and was looking inside of it) and I thanked him for everything he taught me, and inspired me to do and write. And before I could even react...a kiss came out of nowhere..!! I became very emotional..because everything happening was even more than I could dream of..so my voice started to fail..and I was about to cry. Bono realised it, so he looked for my right hand, caressed it, and held my hand strongly close to his chest. I couldn't believe it. Was like I had a shot of something to calm me down! Then he started making questions, always looking me straigth in the eyes: where was I from, which shows had I seen, wich shows had I enjoyed more...I told him I play drums and he laughed. Then he signed my HTDAAB book...and that was it! The greatest moment of my life had just come to an end....!

I dreamed ....dreamed a lot before going to NY ...but I swear...not even in my dreams..I could create such intense beautiful moment. I am a gratefull fan

Love and kisses to everyone
Kite

Woohoo..thank you all girls..for living this moment with me...enjoying it as well Like I enjoy so many stories posted here. I know I haven't posted here a lot lately..but I keep lurking a lot around here

Oh..one more tinny detail...while signing my book..Bono looked at me, smiled..and wrote and said at the same time: 'Tania on the beach'..Bono !

It's funny..he ha sno idea..but that beach...is actually MY beach..LOL..! Well, not mine, but it's 15 minuts away from my home..and the place I choose to relax, to escape real life, to go when I don't want to see or talk to anyone else...! It's amazing
