Claudia, a childhood friend of Gaby, had just dreamed that she would see Gaby again,
in a supermarket, where she bumped her shopping cart.
Gaby made sure that her dream came true! She called a common friend and instructed her to take Claudia to the supermarket...

...and bonk! There you are!
 
She also met two of my sisters-in-law, Victoria and Florencia, and also our youngest niece Catalina

  4. That shot of the Andes is breathtaking! Funny thing, from 37,000 feet everything else looks really small. Mountains just seem to get bigger.

  6. Hey Gabrial, I love that 'mountain from the sky' picture. That was such a nice thing that your wife could go to visit her mother.I wish my daughter-in-law would go see her mom, she has never been back to Venzuela since they were married seven years ago.Thanks for visiting our parade, yes Blocstock was a lot of fun! Happy WW! [:-)]..

  42. How lovely to be with family and friends! Every one looks so happy! Great trip.

  43. How wonderful! Too bad you couldn't have joined her in the celebration and family time.A word of caution about surprising our aging parents, though... my dear Brother-in-law flew down to Georgia on business and decided to rent a car and drive to my house to surprise my parents last year - it was actually surreal and scary for them! We won't be doing that anymore. There is some very real risk to surprising older folks!
