This is my 100th blog entry on this blog. Yay! In celebration, the Overlords of the Internet threw me a party and showered me with gifts. Here I am dressed up and ready to accept my accolades.

Okay, not really. I was down in Orlando, Florida, for a wedding. That's why I was wearing the suit. Try not to notice that the sleeves of my shirt are too long.

It was May 5th, or Cinco De Mayo as they say in Mexico. Cinco de Mayo is regional holiday in Mexico. In the USA, however, the good people at Grupo Modelo (makers of Corona) and Tequila Cuervo La Rojeña, S.A. de C.V (makers of Jose Cuervo) have turned into a big excuse to party.

As the wedding wasn't until 6pm, I decided to have a little early afternoon Cinco De Mayo party myself. Okay, it was just me in a dank bar drinking a double shot of tequila and chasing it with a Corona, but when you have to party, you have to party.

Downtown Orlando was a surprise for me. I'd only once before been to Orlando, and that was just out in Disney World, so I was surprised to find downtown Orlando a little lively. Not super lively, just a little lively.

Here's some pictures from Orlando:

This fountain in Lake Eola is the symbol for the city.

Moss covered trees are common in the Southern USA.

Downtown Orlando - I liked the shiny building.

Palm trees are not something I see often in Canada
