Turns out the Miss Universe 2008 pageant was held there about five months ago. On the drive to the airport we passed all the facilities built for the pageant and many, many billboards still advertising the July 18th event. It's almost like we're famous!
Just in case you were wondering, the winner of the Miss Universe 2008 pageant, was...Dayana Mendoza. The 22 year-old former Miss Venezuela was born in Caracas and speaks three languages - Spanish English and Italian.
