Bits & Bobs: Weddings, Books, Travel & Leisure

14 Jul

I apologize for being absent today. Shigs and I had ourselves some quality time together. We spent hours on a historic hike followed by lots of food and beer. I’m exhausted and sunburned, but I had a fantastic time.  This is going to be a quick and dirty post with more updates tomorrow.

Today was the wedding of Sergio’s sister, Mirian, who he is extremely close to. Here he is with his niece (Rene’s daughter), Daniela. They both look fantastic. She’s such a beautiful little girl. 

Alvaro is back from Jakarta and he’s been reading The Hunger Games. He liked the book but hasn’t seen the movie yet. He also posted a piccy of his lovely wife Carlota with their dinner.

Meanwhile, Iker and Sara were at the Miami airport on their way to Venezuela where Iker will make another charity appearance.

Karim and his lady friend (apparently Sarah) are in Sardinia and are, erm, closer than ever. It sparked some interesting cultural discussion here before, didn’t it? Well, it is what it is. They’re definitely on again.

Nice duck face, Karim.

And Marcelo posted a few more shots, one of the scenery and two with actor Murilo Couto (perhaps our Brazilian watishistas can tell us a bit more about him? I know he was in a television series, but that’s it).

But the best picture of all, I saved for last. Marcelo posted this fantastic picture of Enzo, conked out asleep guarded by a big loyal doggie. Is there anything sweeter than a boy and his dog?

That’s just the freaking best thing in the world right there. Adorable. And on that note, peeps, I bid you a good night. Sleep tight, y’all!

    Ack! That dog is trying to smother wee Enzo!

    I loved Sergio’s twitter feed today. He’s such a sweetheart with his family.

      Noooooo! The doggie is protecting and cuddling him. He luffs him!

        Such a good doge! That’s the best picture in the universe right now.

        As for Karim’s Sarah, extremely good work on his part. She’s gorgeous!

          You can just tell the dog thinks Enzo is sunshine and light and therefore needs to be protected. So cute!

    Sergio’s niece is so cute! He loves her so much!

    Man. To fly to Miami from Houston and have to check in again? That’s gotta suck, but hey, that’s the travel life, right?

    Awwww. Marcelo’s kid is adorable!!!

      Unless I have it totally wrong and that’s when they were leaving Miami and heading to Houston. I was in the sun all day – may have fried my brain. Sigh.

        Ah, that makes more sense. Hey! You were relaxing all day! Best way to be a little brain tired at the end of the day!

    Well, at least someone agreed to take a picture with foreveraloneBenzema ( )

    Murilo Couto is a ( unfunny ) comedian, he’s probably recording something for his comedy show (like this )

    how is it possible that people this rich have clothes and shoes THIS ugly?

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 16, 2012 at 11:18 am #

      Who in particular are you referring to? Nice to see you, btw! Is everything slowing down a bit for you?

      • maddy July 16, 2012 at 11:42 am #

        ha ha you’re funny lozil! SLOWING DOWN 😛

        one of my consultants (what you call ‘attending’ i think) has put me in charge of 2 case reports and 2 audits for some research/academic blah blah he’s working on so i’m stuck scouring for articles on rarities i dont quite understand.

        i still cant get over sergio’s haircut. i used to think his hair was getting too long but he should have left some length. its like a totally different person

        by ugly i was referring to sarah’s shoes, karims trunks and iker’s everything.

        as for the debate regarding karim and his lady, i’ll only say this- do not confuse culture with religion. our Prophet (peace be upon him) strongly advocated marrying outside your tribe as a way of building social ties between tribes. in no way does Islam advocate or prohibit marrying your cousin, instead Islam advocates building bridges between communities.
