Last Saturday my friend Javi invited me to go with him to a wedding. It took place in a chacra (a kind of farm?) about 20 minutes from the centre of Montevideo... not that it took us 20 minutes to get there >:-/ The invitation had 2 different little maps, one in case you lived to the east of the city and one for those of us who live more or less downtown. We are both completely clueless about moving around some parts of town, so instead of using the second map, we drove all the way to Solymar (20km to the east) and then drove to the wedding from there. It took us 1 full hour. *sigh*

Anyway, we had fun, though we sat with Javi's friends from work and I ended up having to chat with their wives all through dinner. Nice ladies, but all they talked about was their children and their diets. Talk about boring! Plus, I had to tolerate the obligatory

"Are you two married or just dating?"

"Neither, just friends."

"Friends??" *wink, wink*

People are so predictable.

Anyway, when the dancing started it got better. Oh, and everyone was just shocked! because the bride and groom didn't start the dancing with the traditional waltz. Instead, they hired some mariachis and danced their first dance to one of their songs. I liked it! :-D
