A moment to brag… while those in the northern hemisphere are enjoying the lovely colors of fall leaves and waning days that will soon lead to a frosty winter, we here in the southern hemisphere are welcoming the new spring and the approach of warm weather with excited anticipation. Yesterday, Friday September 21st, was the official first day of spring here in Argentina. Though adults still had to work, children were free from studies and spent their time loudly playing in the park. The weekend weather has been nothing short of phenomenal. It’s like Mother Nature knew it was the “official” first weekend of spring. Strong sun, cloudless skies, a nice crisp but pleasant breeze… Today was made for strolling through parks. And that’s exactly what we did.
We went to this really cool organic market that popped up in el Bosque de Palermo. They had lots of vendors selling everything from fresh bread to organic beer to flavored sea salts to fresh made food. I think the market is there about once a month during the summer, so I’m looking forward to trying a bunch of stuff. We meandered through the market (that’s right… meandered) and then got some food and had an impromptu picnic in the park… not a bad Saturday afternoon. 🙂
