Semana Santa in Venezuela

I spent last week, which was Spring Break at TC and Semana Santa (Holy Week) in the rest of the world, in Venezuela. And here are the photos to prove it! ; )

The ride started at JFK


And ended at El Aeropuerto International de Maiquetia, my parents went to pick me up

The first thing on the agenda was a BBQ welcome home party, the entire family was invited!


First the sausages…


My dad was in charge


Then came the meat!



And the fish


Some ate inside


While others preferred al fresco


Can you tell I’m happy to be home?


My mom y mis padrinos


The Gang


The dynamic trio


Una orquidea, the Venezuelan national flower


Los Abuelitos


The guys


The girls


The reason I went home


And some kissing too!


Next on the agenda was an outing with some friends. You know Tom …


And now Meli and Cheo


There was some dancing


Some drinking


Some craziness


And some pointing


Beach pictures to come …
