Lazy Summer Afternoons

Everything is smelling fresh after the beautiful rain that we have had yesterday and today. It washes all the dust and dirt away. I decided to take a stroll down to the river this afternoon to see how full it is and how strong the water is running.

The sun was just about to go under and I saw my friend Norma sitting in the water and just enjoying the lazy summer afternoons. The water was a little cold after the rain but that didn`t prevent the children and the other adults from enjoying the water.

I always enjoy a quick chat with my friend and she told me that the river is running very strong and that a dog got swept away this afternoon when he tried to cross the river. How sad is that? I hope they will be able to find him.

Next weekend is a long weekend in Argentina and we are inviting you to come and enjoy our beautiful river and nature. It is also Carnival weekend - a jam packed weekend!

Feriado: 9,10 y 11 de Febrero. Todavia tenemos disponibilidad.

Snow in July!

On Wednesday the weather changed rapidly and became very cold. I felt so sorry for Marina and Pablo who stayed here for a couple of days. It was so cold! The previous day they were enjoying the sunshine and made a nice braai (asado). But today was impossible, Temperatures dropped very quickly and the mountains were covered in snow. We made a fire in the fire place and curled up in front of it.

I was jumping up and down from joy when the first snow started to fall. It is snowing! It is snowing! But the snow was melting so quickly. It was not yet cold enough for the snow to glue together. Snow is really funny. First it falls down from the sky like ice rain. Then the snowflakes start to fall.. Then it melts and everything turns wet. Almost like when it is raining. But the smell in the air is different.

The rest of the day remained very cold and I was still hoping for a lot of snow to fall during the night. I want to build a snow man.

I am not used to snow, so the smallest hint that snow is approaching and I am like a child. I can imagine what children in Europe are like when they wait for the first snow to arrive. Our winter will only finish on 21 September; so maybe, just maybe I will still be able to build that snowman!
