We were wondering how to celebrate the one year anniversary of our move to Puerto Rico when, coincidentally, we received an invite to a party from Petchie and “O” for that same weekend.  Hmmm….not ones to miss out on a party, we did some quick internet research and uncovered a “low season” offer at the Condado Plaza. Packaged with an upgrade to an ocean view room and a $50 resort credit, the offer was hard to resist.  The surprise “gift” from George was the icing on the cake. We decided that a weekend in Condado would do us some good.  This picture pretty much sums up the weekend, which was all about relaxing:


Highlights of the weekend:

  • Meeting Petchie and “O”, a lovely dinner and great conversation (late into the night!)
  • Yummy (NOT tex-mex) Mexican food at “Cielito Lindo”
  • Grocery shopping for cooking staples at an Asian food supermarket
  • Lazing by the pool
  • Lazing on a cliff overlooking the ocean
  • Lazing in our swanky room, watching the Olympics
  • Playing table tennis
  • Outlet mall shopping at Barceloneta on the way home
  • Stress-free relaxation with no construction to supervise…Priceless!

Needless to say, we did our part to stimulate the economy this week-end!
