I am officially on holiday! For a solid 40 hours! Not a lot, but oh, so welcome. I haven’t had a real day off (by that I mean a day where I don’t answer any emails or phone calls or attend to any hotel business) since I was in Europe in August/early September, so I am very happy. The hotel is “closed” (some friends of the owners are staying there but with no services provided) and I am looking forward to a big Christmas party tonight, here in the campo, with two families from Cordoba who live and/or work here, and other friends, both local and international. We are cooking a lechon (pig) and other meats, drinking champagne and just having a nice time. Tomorrow I plan to do absolutely nothing! I could have gone to Buenos Aires to stay with friends, but I just want to relax, and the city is probably even hotter than here.
I am giving myself the present of staying in the hotel, where there is air conditioning! Ah… So I will basically pretend to be a guest at the hotel, enjoying my cool room and the pool. Norway feels very, very far away right now, it is hard to imagine winter!
Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate, to those who don’t, enjoy the peace and quiet!!
