I have been happily ensconced in Patagonia now for a week.  It has been lovely.   We have had hot weather for so early in the season, but beautiful nonetheless, hot days and cool nights.  Perfect for swimming and sleeping.  There has been the usual chaos around the holidays in combination with setting up the […]
