Hi Valeria; not probable since I'm in Spain :) I've contacted you 'cause I recently made a PLS account and I'm going to stay in Mexico at least two months in February / March, so I'm interested in meeting lighting professionals there, or just know about their work. I toured once in Mexico with spanish artist Rosana and I felt in love with the country :) Are you mexican? Hablas español?

Hello Valeria; Steve Shelley here. yes, i wrote the book "A Practical Guide to Stage Lighting". It took a long time to write the first edition [about two years]. the second edition was much quicker because they didn't want to wait for me to think about it too much. if you spot any inconsistencies in the text please let me know. thanks, Steve

perdium is when you get payed a certain amount of cash in hand for each venue each day, so like if you were touring in germany one day and france the next or something youd have like 20 or 30 bucks of the local money, im not sure if people generally get perdiums touring in thier home country or not, itd be best to ask nook or somebody, because honestly I dont full understand because I havent been on tour but for a three shows back to back as a tech going around the state.
