Today, I had to work until 2 PM. While I worked, Zack took a bicycle tour with La Bicleta Verde. Maybe he will agree to be a guest author on the blog to tell you more about it, but from what he tells me it was quite the adventure.
This afternoon we took the metro out to Los Dominicos to do some Christmas shopping. Los Dominicos is an outdoor market with lots of shops and a neat atmosphere. It's a fun area to browse around, and we were pretty productive with our Christmas shopping.
There was an assortment of wildlife on display at the market. Does anyone want a little chick or a peacock for Christmas?!
Tonight Zack took me out for my birthday dinner! We went to Baco, which is a French restaurant in Providencia. The food was really good, and the atmosphere was even better. We went all out and each had a glass of wine, an appetizer, entrees, and dessert! When we got back to the hotel, I had lots of birthday cards from home that Zack brought for me. It was so great to have so many nice cards to top off the birthday celebration!
My sister found an all-Spanish card - it was hilarious! And I love my gift from her...a Trader Joe's cookbook! I can't wait to get home and get back to shopping at my favorite grocery store!
Tomorrow we leave for a weekend in Mendoza, Argentina! We will be sure to update the blog with stories and pictures when we get back. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
Ciao from Kristen and Zack!
