We wanted to take our friend Liliana and her husband Stefen out for a special dinner to show our gratitude for her cheerful and determined efforts to find us a suitable apartment. Besides, we just love her! She is such a sweetheart, as is her German husband who has also become our friend. They are in their thirties, but don’t seem to mind hanging around with old folks 😊 She speaks pretty good English but his is even better. So we suggested a few restaurants and they selected El Mercado. Good choice! The food was superb and the service excellent.
Bruce ordered a very special bottle of Malbec for us to share with dinner and we continued our conversation over dessert. I told them I was considering taking a painting class called Vino and Van Gogh. Turns out they had taken a couple of the classes together, one class involved painting the Blue Footed Booby. I can’t wait to try!
This is a very short post because not much is going on this week. I picked up a virus or flu or some malaise that has kept me grounded for a few days. I am just now starting to feel better. This weekend is Valentine’s and we will spend it at a very special hotel in El Centro, so more on that next time. And next week we may visit the thermal baths which are only a ten minute taxi ride from here. Mmmmmm…..that sounds so good!
