Default Hello Wednesday

Morning mates, still freezing rain but supposed to warm up to 13C or 55F by afternoon. Plans today include Chair Yoga and a haircut.
What are you up to?

Good morning. No plans for me today. We had some rain last evening.

All have a great day.

Default Hello Wednesday

Good morning. Nothing exciting here, either. Gotta make a couple of doctor's appts.

Have a good day!

Good afternoon Mates


Donna, I love the way you keep yourself busy and on the go.


I did have a busy morning. I trimmed the fronds on a Palm tree, weeded under it and applied fertilizer.
I had our pool guy come over for his first visit. He will now come over every week. Our pool is now ready to go and I took my first dip a little while ago.


Have a nice day, folks.

Good afternoon ‘mates. We are nicely settled into our apartment here in the Recoleta area of Buenos Aires. Each day we go for long walks to explore what is around us and yesterday at the Recoleta Cemetery we found the mausoleum of Eva Peron. I guess it is something most tourists do as it is highlighted on the map of the cemetery. One thing for sure is the heat and humidity but we don’t mind knowing what is back home.
Every block seems to have a pastry shop and they all sell what is called medilunas which is a glazed croissant. They are very popular and very addicting. Our can buy them for as little s $0.35 each. So much for trying to loose weight after our cruises.

I always seem to lose weight on a cruise.

Keith, the Recoleta Cemetary, in particular, Eva Peron's spot, is VERY popular. We visited twice in 2014 (once on our city tour and once on the way to a cowboy-type farm - same trip). I enjoyed wandering the cemetery and looking at the different statues and markers. Some are so elaborate!

Enjoy your stay in Buenos Aires!
