We arrived near the Village Square, only to find a posse of people standing by with cameras and note-pads, clearly waiting for some big occasion. We subsequently found out it was a celebrity wedding about to take place and we were told, incredibly that parts of the village were out of bounds until later that evening. Infuriated, I returned home and introduced the world to 'The Major.
