It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Tea with Evita

Today was one of those cold crisp sunny days that begged for a long walk with perhaps a stop at a nice cafe ..
We left our apartment , walked through miles of parks and along the wonderful huge Avenida Libertador from Recoleta to Palermo Botanico.
Once in Palermo, we moseyed on over to the Evita Museum, where we could have a cup of tea or something stronger and just enjoy the day and the surroundings.

I had Sidre .. sparkling, cold and refreshing and not so strong it would  make me curl up next to a plant for a nap.
My husband had a Malbec that he really liked and we shared a sandwich.
We sat for a  long time, people watching, listening to the conversations around us , not that we could understand anything .. and enjoyed the fresh air.

I took countless photos on the way there and back, those are on the Tumblr blog.
The architecture in Palermo is wonderful.
In my neighbourhood ( Recoleta) there are many grand French inspired buildings , graceful and what remind  me of Paris every day.

In Palermo, you will find quite a few modern buildings, tall glass apartment blocks and to my delight, many low Spanish style buildings.
Complete with the small balconies and elaborate carved doors and decorative iron work.
Some have courtyards that you can glimpse and some hide everything behind walls or huge doors.
I always want to ring a bell and ask if I can come in and just take a look ..
That won't happen so I take as many photos as possible and let my imagination run wild.

Long walks and fresh cold air, add up to pizza delivery for dinner and if not a movie, then a good book .. read in bed.
Autumn is here, I am beginning to hibernate.
