High lights


Last night I went to an all-white party in Victoria. The night was perfect, all stars out, and a cool summer breeze.. I took several pictures, but this one I like the most.

J PARTY












Colonia - UY
























































































Last weekend Henry and I went to Colonia again, but this time we slept there (didn't go to Carmelo this time). As soon as we got to the hotel after walking around all day- it started to rain, so we went to the spa, which was nice cause we had it all to ourselves! no one else there.. . got a massage and all that stuff. The next day was beautiful! we had lunch at this little place called La Florida. Really good. Colonia is so cool.. I feel like I'm soo... away from everything.. it's almost like being in another time period... I feel transported.

K x 2


Let me introduce you to our new president. We go from having 5 presidents in one week, to having a couple govern for 8 years, or 12 years or whatever. Anything can happen. It's politics.

I found this old photo of C. Kirchner, which I kinda like cause she looks like a character from a Hitchcock movie.

weekend escape



















Last weekend was the last long weekend of the year here in Argentina, so Henry and I went to La Pascuala - this little place in one of the Delta islands. It was glorious. If you've ever been to Vietnam, this is kind of similar. Romantic and great for relaxing, nearby the city.

Iguazú Falls, Argentina












































































We recently came back from another short trip to the Iguazú falls. Our trip was spectacular! I already want to go back. My favorites? the zodiacs, the Bird Park in the Brazilian side, and our amazing hotel views!! This last photo is right before we got soaked! these people have no mercy!

KONGA

Last night I went to see Jean Francois Casanova's Konga at the Maipo theatre, and it was fantastic. The place is not the traditional theatre. It is one of those spaces, which has little tables and an interactive- type stage, which made the experience so much nicer. We had a great wine and enjoyed the surrealist -meets- kitsch show, which overflows with glamour, bizzare characters and humor.

With Ralph Lauren in Argentina & Punta del Este







































I recently hosted Ralph Lauren and his family in Argentina and Uruguay. I'm so lucky!! It was wonderful to meet them, show them around and spend time with them. Here's a photo we took over the weekend at the Luxury Villa they rented from us in Punta del Este! the first photo is from New Year 's Eve in Jose Ignacio.

I love Patagonia
















































































































Henry and two other people fell from the raft!
it was really crazy this time.


We just got back from Patagonia. The first few days we stayed in a lodge out in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by the most incredible sceneries ever. We did horseback riding, kayaks, trekking, etc. We went to Bariloche one day, did rafting on the Manso river, all the way to Chile. That part was a thrill. That night, exhausted as we were, we had dinner at Nann - a tiny restaurant with gorgeous views of the city. Once dinner was over, the owners kindly invited Henry and I to a back room where we met their friend Ernesto, owner of Cassis, another great restaurant by the lake. We tasted a few, vintage wines and chatted for a long time. It was so ideal!
Then came Villa la Angostura where we went to a friend's birthday. We had an asado at his newly-finished house set on a hill facing the river and surrounded by a lush forest. After lunch the boys went for a swim in the river! too cold for me that day...thanks but no thanks. Tinto Bistro later that night was fun! as were the days that followed in the magic of Las Balsas. Then, off to Henry's house.
Special thanks to Las Balsas for your hospitality.
