All that talk about trips and fun stuff and my first photo is the bottles we're recycling. They don't recycle much here but we do what we can. We save these for our friend at the ferreteria (hardware store) because he buys huge containers of pool chemicals and then re-packages them in bottles like these. Obviously we need to stop just collecting and actually take him the bottles (it's been a few months).
Eden Hotel in La Falda so we could get some photos of the hotel where Hitler supposedly vacationed (a rumor only, no documented proof) when the hotel was owned by close friends and Nazi supporters, Walter and Ida Eichorn.
alpaca silver at this place. Striking store front, isn't it?
"Friendship is cozy, warming me like fresh, hot tea. Endless refills please."Overcast skies and rainy weather pushed Ivan and Tina's trip up the mountain to the end of the week. Finally the sun came out long enough for them to take the Aerosilla (ski lift) up.
Encuentro Anual de Colectividades (Annual International Food and Music Festival). Here's a collage of the Jesuit enclave that fronts the millpond where they hold the festival. Parts of it date from the 1600s.
bagna cauda from the Italian booth was pretty good but the stuffed pork from Poland, not so much. Shish-cabob from France was okay. The line at the German booth was ridiculously long when we were ready to get dessert so we grabbed something from Italy and it was disappointing. Oh well. Like fair food anywhere, there are really great things and not-so-great ones.
The only entertainment we saw before leaving at 11:30 was the Argentine folk dancers. Love their traditional costumes!
