Nuevo Amigo

At mid-day Raul Vidal, our new friend, stopped by to final measurements and design for the mirror he's going to make for our living room. Raul is an artist in cristal.

Raul would fit well in Austin: he's a radical vegan whose workshop's walls bear the Argentine flag adorned with photos of Che Guevara and Fidel Castro with Cristina Fernandez. 

We took an excursion there last Saturday to see more of his work. Raul lives in Avellaneda, outside the limits of Capital Federal, in Buenos Aires province. We were reminded of Mexico City.

The mirror should be finished around the end of the month. Stay tuned.
