… Anyone There?

Hey everyone.
Remember me?

After more than a month of quasi-hibernation, I have resurfaced. I hope you missed me, because I missed you. A lot. So much that I ate my feelings and got a jump start on those extra holiday kilos. But I won’t put you on a guilt trip or anything.

Anyway – Where the balls have I been? The short answer is, I got a dog. I know, but have you ever had to take care of a 22kg semi-wild animal? Whoa. That will drain your energy resources. So this post has been a long time coming – Just wanted to drop a little line pre-Fiestas and the like.

I haven’t stopped my eating fest, of course. In fact, I have been on a roll. Some highlights – the Festival de la India at the Sheraton back in November:

La Huella We also had an amazing, delicious, insane dinner at The Hidden Kitchen which nearly left me unconscious for days. Soon I am off to Mendoza for four days of drunken gluttony with my family, who haven’t been to Argentina for more than two years.

Wishing you all the best this holiday season (especially those that celebrate Festivus), lots of food comas and fat panzas for everyone!

Festivus for the Rest of us

Learn to sift through the mediocre restaurants and beachside cafes and get to the good stuff, and you will be able to have an amazeballs trip in Punta no matter the season. Trust me on this one.

Weekend Getaway – Punta del Este

This year, 1 in 3 days are either holidays or weekends here in Argentina. Oh Cristina, you know how to pull at the voting strings of your electorate – give them insane amounts of time off! Oui. Next month there are three long weekends alone (I love April) – how do you plan to take advantage? Pack those bags and head east – Punta del Este in the off-season is a dream. Continue reading
