Domingo, 9 de 11 2008

Today was a glorious celebration of spring before its transformation into summer. Though the air was warm the breeze was cool. And jacaranda trees throughout the city are covered with masses of lavender blossoms. 

We left the apartment at 12:30 noon, heading north on Azcuenaga over Avenida las Heras around the British Embassy and Plaza Mitre to Avenida del Libertador. Left on Libertador past the memorial to Evita Peron (with the National Library in the background) and the Automobile Club of Argentina to Croque Madame, one of our favorite outside cafes (as everyone knows). A leisurely 2 hour lunch, then over the street to Plaza Chile and the monument to O'Higgins, then back up Libertador past the mechanical flower that opens and closes with the sunlight and the Facultad de Derecho, right on the overpass, and back to Azcuenaga 1170 by 5:30.
