I've been meaning to share the progress on the house next door. The men have been busy plastering the exterior (stucco). In this photo you can see the block that hasn't been plastered yet. They're doing a really good job and it will look fabulous when it's all done. I wonder what color they'll paint it?
We spent part of the week in Sta. Rosa and Ivan really wanted me to be able to use my computer to check e-mail and blog. On Monday he
On the way to Sta. Rosa Tuesday I had to make a pit stop. This was the sign outside the bathrooms.
No photos on Wednesday (spent all day cleaning) or Thursday (didn't even remember to take photos of our company even though I put the camera on the coffee table!). We had a lot of fun with our friends, the two Jorges and their families, who came over for asado. One of the Jorges just moved back to Argentina with his wife and three daughters after spending many years in the U.S. The girls will have a big adjustment when they start school next month! While they understand Spanish, they don't speak it much.
Friday we had other visitors. Ricardo and Ivan have been friends since they were teens. We always have a lot of fun when we get together with his family. Their two oldest boys had to stay in Buenos Aires for school and work. They love getting away to Sta. Rosa every year (and who can blame them -- it's a great place to get away to!).
