Dear Rose, Mary, Jean, Olivia, Vero, Annie, Sonia, H, Tootsie, Chandra, Gizmo and Barb - hello, hola!
Just to let you know, we're not really dead, we're in Buenos Aires.
Thank you so much for writing and asking after us! Sorry for being such a rude tick and never getting back to any of you. I can't believe 3 months have gone by since my last post. I got busy, then lazy, and that was that. Hope you're all well! I miss you! though I do not miss blogging at all, I must admit.
Thought you might enjoy these pictures of our day out at the Mataderos Markets today (which took 5 hours to upload you can see we have great Internet connection here).
There were quite a few dogs at the markets. In fact, I don't think it's our imagination that there are A Lot of dogs in Buenos Aires, even in the city centre where we're staying. This one was a free spirit.
No one seemed to mind him scavenging around their tables, and a few people actually called out to him.
This old gentleman was very keen to show off his little dog's party trick.
The dog was so relaxed, he fell asleep.
The gentleman made sure I didn't forget his other friend.
I get the feeling Argentinians love their dogs.
Meanwhile, on the home front, Georgia is back at Mr O's. Here are some pictures from the last week or 2.
She didn't like seeing the bags being packed.
"You're bloody leaving me again, aren't you?"
A last walk in the glorious Spring sunshine.
A last cuddle.
"Just admit it. You're going to miss me."
"Hey, I remember this place! I get to eat raw chicken carcasses here!"
We're very grateful for that. Regardless, it'll be a while before we start to feel less guilty about leaving her behind for 3 months.
Mr O sent us this picture.
It was in our mailbox before we even landed, how sweet is that man!
This is the face that looks back at me from my mobile phone and reminds me what an awful dog parent and human being I am.
"Miss me yet?"
Yes we do, Georgia Little Pea.
Hooroo for now! Got to get up in 3 and a half hours to catch the ferry to Uruguay. Isn't travelling fun. Hugs to everyone! X
