Exactly nine days later and no change.
I am still in awe of the U2 360 show.
I've said to anyone who will listen - not only was the show magnificent but it was cool to share it with Isael.
This was his first U2 show and it was like experiencing them for the first time through his eyes.
By now, you've seen the pictures of the claw and heard the stories. It was everything you've heard.
U2 is the real deal.
They love their craft.
They love their fans.
We love them.
Nine days later - I am changed because of the time we spent together. The Barretos with U2.
And me with my love, Isael.
