The very beginning of the month God (and the baby living next door) had to cry a little, Holy Crap! Check out this downpour.
Drops or Splashes? Would you prefer to have drops of water from the overhangs of building above hit you in the head or would you rather step on a loose "floating tile" on the side walk that will splash you with what ever water has settled under it?
Out to Pilar and Sole's mother's house for her birthday. Nice day for an asado and the pool! Sole's father Jorge is the master of asados/ BBQs. Typically cooked over wood or coal for about 1 hour with a good amount of salt on the meat. The cuts of meat used are not the types you would cook rare so asados are mostly fully cooked, but still tender and delicious.

|Salting the meat is key
|Nice group of friends

Check out these views from Sole's apartment building on a windy day. Spectacular! You can see all of the city.
