OK, I'll just hang in the lobby, there is a lady with a cute little 5 month old, so I amuse myself. I was thinking, should I run to the taqueira for a snack, or locate something other than instant coffee, but I fear, my ride will be waiting for me and we will be late. Turns out someone decided to get her hair done starting at noon.... about 13h00 I start getting concerned since I really don't know all the plans for the day since I just do and follow what I'm told.
Finally, one of Cristina's cousins and I hop a cab and book it to the church. I totally missed everyone getting gussied up, but I made it to the church with 5 minutes to spare... grumble. There are a number of families there and more or less it's an assembly line. There is the church photographer following the priest, a nice older chap shooting film, and the assorted people from each of the other families. Things were a bit crowded but I managed.
Estef started to get a little fussy towards the end of the ceremony, it's a little past her nap time after all, but she got to the end like a trooper. She makes the cutest trumpeting sound. I totally knew how she felt, I didn't have my required caffeine fix for the day, yet, so I was tired and cranky, but phase one is complete.
We saddled up, and headed to the fiesta located in a private garden. They managed to hook me up with the coffee I need. I now feel human. Lots of family and friends show up, great food and family what else can you ask for?
I do photos of the assorted family groupings and rejoin the festivities. We wrap it up and I head to the house. I say my goodnights and join Marcela, Isaac and another couple friends for an evening out.
First we go to a house party for awhile, then our first night club. It was a disco we only order a couple of drinks. Part way through the evening I poured half a candle worth of wax on myself trying to use one of the candles to read the menu to decide what to order next. We decided to head to a salsa club since a couple of the people wanted to salsa. The disco was videos, the salsa club a mixture of a liveband and DJ.
A good long night of drinking. Several new beers have been added to the repertoire. Overall the night consisted of
We call it a night .... gotta lift back to the hotel.... I love this place.
