Where did I leave off? Oh OK… We got safely back to our apartment.. whew!!

That was certainly some tense moments. All I can say is the crew was wonderful to us, and assured us they would not leave us stranded.. one way or the other. And they didn’t. I thank them all for their kindness and understanding of a few ladies that hold such a high admiration for Mr. Depp that got themselves into a little pickle!!
Ok.. so after being out Thursday night till almost 4am we slept late the next day.. (well some slept later then others-I was asleep till 5pm!!!LOL) Two of them headed to the hotel where they were going to be shooting for the day. When I woke up in a panic once realizing that they had already left, I called them and due to a mishap they were actually on their way back.. Crap! When the two of them got back we then started plans to head back over to the hotel see what we could see..
Lobby of the Caribe Hilton as they are setting up C and I headed back out via taxi to the Caribe Hilton in New San Juan with the hopes of seeing Johnny to get some kind of a confirmation after receiving the Tee the night before. I had to get something to eat since I hadn’t eaten since sometime very early the night before so we sat in one of the hotel restaurants and sat and chilled watching the filming that was going on outside.

It was a closed set so it wasn’t like we could really see anything. But they were setting up the set inside for the shooting that was to begin shortly.
After a little bit.. we moved to what we thought was going to be a “primo” spot to watch. We stood there for a while trying to see what was happening outside.
Jerry .. with the watchful eye.. The man ROCKS!!

A little while later here came Jerry into the lobby, no Johnny in site, he was working outside. I turned and Jerry gave a little wave and started to walk over to us and I started over to him. He took my hands and started to tell me how much Johnny loved the gifts I had given to him the night before. He said he loved the Tee, and the book! And then he said “where did you get that poster?” I told him that the poem was written by one of the girls and I did the collage’.

He reiterated again how much Johnny loved the stuff and would like to thank us, were we sticking around?(uh..DUH!!!) I really believe Jerry and Johnny all thought they would be finished around 2am or so, well say 3 hours later. CRAZY!!
So needless to say, we stayed. I got some pretty decent pictures with no flash( never never use a flash during filming) and low light. But honestly put my camera down more then took pictures the entire night.

Still on break.. The man was working his a$$ off!!

Not only was it absolutely fantastic watching Johnny working all week and seeing him everyday.. but it was fascinating watching them do the whole process of making a movie.
Needless to say it was a very long night, 5am before they were done!! Poor Johnny just looked so tired.. and there were over 200 extra’s with some family members hanging out also probably with the hope of a chance to meet Johnny.

I really don’t think anyone thought the night was going to go so late. 5am hit.. they said CUT! and Johnny was about 30ft from us on the other side of where they had the equipment stashed. He did meet a few of the extra’s, but that was so fast and Jerry had the SUV brought to the front and seconds later he was in it!

It was a “oh shi*” moment he was leaving and we hadn’t gotten C’s bag to him yet!!! Damn! I yelled at her “come on!” and we ran around to the front of the building just to see the SUV start to pull out. But then…. brake lights!!! YAY!! (no they weren’t stopping for us!!LOL. though would love to think so) Jerry jumped out because he had forgotten something. I ran up to Jerry and begged him to take the bag to Johnny and he said of course.. and wished us a safe trip home.. And again.. POOF!! They were gone!

No complaints.. no disappointments.. the adventures and meetings we had were more then we could have ever imagined or hoped for!
We had accomplished our goal.. The Tee we had worked so hard getting it around the world with all those beautiful messages had arrived safely in Johnny’s own hands!! Mission accomplished!
An extra that was just not having a good time..
