A long walk cures what ails you.
Or in our/my case, it gives you a new ailment to get your mind off the old one.
I woke up with little to no energy.
But the sun is shining, it is sparkly beautiful out and we really needed the fresh air and sunshine.
So with no set destination, we figured we would do what we did when Pup was with us, we would wander. Go wherever we felt like and stop at a cafe, relax in the warm sun and appreciate the fresh air.
Who knew the entire city of Buenos Aires would have the same idea ??
The skateboarders were flying down the hill in the park.
The old folks were sitting on the benches by the monument in the park.
The babies were toddling around in the grass, dogs chasing each other, people exercising, it was great.
We walked about a hundred miles , okay, a hundred blocks ? and realised that on a Saturday, everyone is busy, the cafes were crowded, we only wanted to sit outdoors in the sun, the shade was too cold.
There were no seats !
I was irritated by a woman on a bicycle who took umbrage at our being on the sidewalk when she was riding her bike .. which irritated me .
So home to a big cup of tea and scones and plans for a lazy night with dinner being whatever was easy.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is an example of the wild and crazy weekend of an Ex-pat .
