Hi amigos! We just returned to Bonn after an action-packed week in Asturias. On Tuesday, October 25, Lucía received the Sacrament of Baptism in the church of San Juan de Parres, the Asturian village where my grand father was born and raised, and where my late father spent his childhood and teenage years after leaving his native Cuba in 1960.
The ceremony was beautiful. My brother Pedro and Carla, my best friend from Law School are Lucia's godparents. At the end of the ceremony Pedro delivered a highly emotional speech where he explained Lucía the importance of San Juan de Parres in our lives during the last four generations of our family.
It was an amazing day celebrating love, family and faith. We missed my father, who passed away last year, and remembered how we used to plan all together the logistics for Lu's Baptism. We are sure he enjoyed that day from wherever he is now. Here you have a few pictures if you'd like to see.
Have a great week and thanks for reading!
