    Since we have a kitchen Sandra is spoiling me with home cooked meals again. Yesterday we had swiss onion pie. Delicious. She is even getting into Christmas mood and made some Christmas cookies. I´m going to gain weight here.

    onion pie, mmmm

    I am really enjoying your photos. So many memories. If you are stopping in Porvenir, check to see if the Club Croata is open for dinner.

    Thanks for your words. It is Always interesting to see places one has been in other ride Reports. As you say - it brings back memories. Might have a look at the Club. Thanks and Merry Xmas.

    If you want Details of the pie, Google swiss onion pie and you´ll probably get the recepie. I can only tell you it is delicious. Sandra has made it for several People in the US we were staying with and they all liked it. Merry Xmas.

    Hey David, nice to hear from you and a Merry Xmas to you and Kandi. It is surprisingly warm down here on some days, but it is windy almost all the time and sometimes very strong. So we will have a breezy Xmas this year. All the best to you two too.

    They have some artisenal breweries here in El Calafare. We tried some and found the one with the best beers. Luckily it is not even 10 Walking minutes from our AirBnB.

    My favorite is the last one in the list
