T/N: Ok This is the first time I write a fanaccount and English is not my first language but I tried my best :D.
Part 1: Awakening, arrival to Poble Espanyol and queueing.
The day began early, too early for a Saturday and the worse thing is that the alarm didn’t ring (still don’t know why) so I’ve to get dressed in 5 min and quickly went out without having any meal T __ T because the taxi was waiting for me.
In less than 10 min I was already there, I arrived to Barajas 7:30AM and met the girl with whom I had organized the journey and the lodging. We went straight to the gates cause we already had the tickets.
Having passed the controls and located the gate I went to eat breakfast and to buy some sandwiches for later in the queue. We had plenty of time so we sat down and started talking about JYJ, the concert and everything that I can’t talk with other people. This way we talked for almost an hour and at 9:00 AM we embarked.
We arrive to Barcelona at 10:30AM and waited to meet another girl who came from Las Palmas of Gran Canaria. While we were waiting for her two friends of mine who had come on the friday evening and were already exchanging the tickets for the bracelet told me to come and queue with them so that we could take turns.
We leave the rucksacks in the hotel and I took the purse, banners, the lightstick and the paper with the fanchants and walked to the Poble Espanyol, in 5 min we were there, it was between 11:30-12:00 AM. When we got there there wasn’t a queue for exchanging the tickets so we got our bracelets and I went back to the queue while the others stayed to get some goods. I joined my friends in the queue and met a group of very nice girls and we all decided to do shifts to go to the toilet, to buy some food or just to stretch the legs.
I queue for a total of 9 hours but there were people there camping since Thursday with the rain and everything.
In the queue there were fans from diverse countries, they were both asian and european fans as well as from South America. Mothers and fathers as well and also old ladies. I saw people with flags from France, Italy, Finland, Portugal and certainly Spain. I also saw a lot of asian boys. People were singning, listening to music, dancing or just sittings and chatting calmly, we were all there for JYJ and everybody was in a good mood, for once I didn’t feel out of place.
As the hours passed the queue increased and I realized I was in a good spot and that probably I wouldn’t be so far from the stage as I had thought at first.
At 2-2:30 PM we started eating, we were hungry and there were still many hours ahead and we had to be full of energy for the concert. Many people passed recording with domestic video cameras, especially asian men, they walked really fast and recorded the queue, it was funny. There were girls distributing promotional posters of the concert for free and they gave us a few and I feel sorry but we used them to sit down cause the floor was wet but we were lucky and it didn’t rain the whole day. Also a big banner for to sign for JYJ was prepared, people were writting down their twitter accounts LOL and they gave fluorescent red bracelets for 5-10 cents
In one of the shifts we went to the nearest mal (about 5-10 mins walking) and we bought some coffee because we were getting sleepy.
