I guess I should start this post by telling you that my wedding was wonderful. I had so much fun and my only complaint is that time seemed to fly. I believe it was over too soon and I think most of the guests will agree. As far as I know everyone had a great time.
Our wedding cake toppers, made by me
There was plenty of food and drinks for everyone and the music was excellent. We danced as much as we could, spent some time with our friends and family and partied until 4 am. The cake was delicious and pretty, though there was too much left by the end of the party. By the way, the cake toppers were made by me. I also work with figure modeling and I'm very happy with the way they look.
After the wedding we went to Cancún for our honeymoon. It was an amazing vacation! We stayed at an all inclusive hotel, nice, clean and comfortable, where all the employees were highly attentive. The beach was gorgeous, the food was great and the tours we took were unforgettable.

We had the chance to visit the Mayan city of Chichén Itza, just a few days before the end of the Mayan calendar. It was a humbling experience, seeing the ruins of such and advanced civilization. It made me think about the future of our own society.

Food related, we visited a small town in Yucatán, called Valladolid. There we had a wonderful lunch at "La Casona", with a very typical Mexican menu. There I had the chance to try Cochinita Pibil, a slow roasted pork seasoned with annatto and sour oranges. Delicious!

I also had a wonderful guacamole, a most divine pico de gallo and all the nachos you could eat. My mouth waters at the memories. Back at the hotel, I ate my beloved fish tacos, which I hadn't had in years. I guess it's needless to say that I gained some weight during that trip.

Well, that's it for now. I won't bore you further with wedding stories, but I'll be back soon with the results of my kitchen experiments and more Venezuelan food. Thanks for reading,
