Back home in Buenos Aires

Its been a while since my last blog and hope that all my readers are well and had a great holiday season.

I spent some time with friends in Colonia Uruguay which I loved and found the town peaceful and beautifully located on the Rio de la plata.

I am back in Palermo Viejo now and this area seems to be getting busier and livelier by the day . The feel of the streets is very light and happy and the restaurants seem to be bursting at the seams.I have been trying some great new restaurants went to Casa Cruz for the first time recently and found it very expensive with minute servings but the atmosphere was excellent and the food though small in portions exquisite . Try the king crab centolla ravioli it is easily the best pasta dish I have had in Buenos Aires . Also I have been back to my favourite steakhouse La Cabrera a few times of late Unfortunately it is very hard to get into these days as it has been discovered by tourists and there is always a line outside patiently waiting for a table. The bife de chorizo is the best I have had here and the portion humunguos enough for two people and only for the bargain price of 33 pesos including all those beautiful side dishes 12 in all if there are 2 of you.

Tomorrow I will be going for the first time to Tierra Santa that kitch place that is all about Jesus and his life . I am hoping to see the full moon rise above the Rio de la plata .

take care
