THE DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS
How are you all? I’ve just had a very nice talk with A.Paula, Naheed and Carmen on Skype.
It’s amazing to think that I’m more in contact with all of you than my friends who live next to me.
I want to thank you for all of your comments; it’s always very rewarding to receive them.
Well, today is Sunday and it’s raining in Buenos Aires. Yesterday it was very hot (33º C) and there was not a single cloud in the sky. Thank God we have many sunny days in Buenos Aires and the weather is predictable most of the time.
Yesterday Oscar and I went to do the Christmas shopping. The shopping malls were full of people and we tried to buy all very quickly. Both of us hate crowds.
I took some pictures for you. This is a shopping mall not very far from my flat.
Then we went to Belgrano neighbourhood. Since it was very hot we had a big ice cream while we walked along the streets. The shops windows were all decorated with Christmas items.
I especially love a street called “Sucre St”. They put a red carpet on the pavement and assembled a tree at the corner of the street.
Here is a picture of a shop where my mum used to buy all the decorations for our tree when I was a child. It’s located in a Gallery. Yesterday I went there and remembered those nostalgic times.
By the way, where are you going on Christmas Eve, my friends?
Oscar and I will go to my mum’s house along with my mother in law and my sister. On New Year’s Eve they will all come to my house. I’ll take some pictures at my mum’s so that you can see all of them.
Before finishing this blog I want to say MERRY CHRISTMAS to the BBC staff, all the teachers, all my blog mates and all the commentators.
Hope you have a wonderful time. May Peace and love be with all of you.
Hugs and kisses to you.
