Patricia’s friend Helvi got married yesterday, here are some pictures from the wedding:
Weddings in Peru are fun, of course, with food, drinks, and lots of family and friends. Helvi’s wedding was at a rural resort about 45 minutes outside of Cusco, the “Trinidad Resort Hotel”, a converted textile factory in Lucre. I really enjoyed the outdoor setting. There were also entertainers, which explains the masks and balloons
Despite the mix of champagne, Pisco Sour, cerveza, vino and whiskey, I behaved reasonably well – until the DJ put on rock ‘n roll music.
You have to understand… I like the Latin music that is typically played at weddings and parties in Peru, but I’m a nut when it comes to rock ‘n roll. Due to the – ahem – state Patricia is in, she wisely chose not to dance rock ‘n roll with me (or maybe she doesn’t like how I dance?), so I made a big scene with the bride. I figured as the only gringo at the entire party, I had to dance to gringo music!
“Many dreams come true, and some have silver lining
I live for my dream, and a pocket full of gold”
(from Led Zeppelin, “Over the hills and far away”)
The wedding was great, all the best to Helvi y Fitzgerald!!!
