Buenos Aires in bits and bites V

First of all, I´m sorry for the slow pace the blog has been having this year. It´s just that I´m spending quite a considerable amount of time daydreaming about and planning for my trip to the US in April.

The backlog of recipes and pictures is getting bigger with each passing week, but I can´t seem to focus on writing about food right now. I promise I will try to sit down and describe a recipe or two soon, but in the meantime I was hoping to entertain you with some pictures I took in the Japanese garden in Buenos Aires around two months ago.

It´s quite the interesting place to visit because it´s just such a quiet little spot in the middle of the city. So one delightful spring afternoon my friend Jenny and I went there to relax, and chat about everything and nothing at the same time… not to mention attend a free seminar about Japanese cooking which turned into a true test to Jenny´s Spanish skills because, as you should know, if you can understand Spanish with a thick Japanese accent, you are on your road to success, so way to go, Jenny!

Anyways, I hope the new year is being kind to you all. I´m gonna be back in a few days with recipes, and I also see a post about the trip coming up since that´s all I seem to think about lately.

so dangerous indeed!
The translation would be “do not climb the waterfalls, danger”. First of all, the waterfalls are more like an open faucet, and secondly, who does that?

    Hi Marce!
    Don’t worry about being slow with your blog, I’m even slower than you updating mine…
    Great photos as usual!
    Any ideas if they will run a similar seminar while I’m over there? It sounds terribly interesting!!
    See you soon!

  10. I’m moving to Buenos Aires in a few months. Thanks for the pictures. Now, I’m really looking forward to it. Hoping not to encounter cold, I didn’t love the pictures of the snow! (just kidding). But I am looking forward to the move, after seeing your site.
    Thanks!
