Basically it's the last day of vacation

...since we head home tomorrow.

*sigh* I really like vacations. Mainly because of the food; we hardly ever eat out except on vacation.

So here's a round-up of some of the food we've eaten...
~ meat-filled ravioli with tomato sauce
~ ravioli stuffed with fresh tomato and basil  and smothered in four cheese sauce
~ pork loin with mushrooms and orange sauce
~ a sampler plate of sushi
~ the most amazing Black Forest cake ever
~ chocolate passion fruit roll ('sushi' dessert)

We've also cooked a few meals "in house" since the suite came with a kitchenette. But we didn't cook as many as planned -- one night we did pizza instead of cooking and another night we grabbed Subway.

Right now I'm munching on a new Dorito flavor which I came across at Carrefour today. Y'all tried the corn-on-a-cob-with-butter flavor yet?

Yes, I'm all about the food even (or maybe especially) on vacation.

Ivan and I got up early this morning and headed due west to the mountains. Discovered that these are not the really tall, snow covered ones we'd seen just a little farther south the other day, and I didn't get many good photos since the only ones I took were while going 120 km down the road. Guess the snow-capped mountain photos will have to wait until our next visit.

Tina's quest for leather was successfully accomplished this morning and she ended up getting not only boots but also a jacket and purse. Definitely her father's daughter! After spending the whole week looking and comparing every possible option, she negotiated better deals each time.

[I'm terrible at haggling over prices; I hate to do it even at garage sales.]

Now we're chilling in the air conditioned suite during siesta before we venture out for our final evening of fun and food.

I haven't had time to do much more than post this week. Next week I'll get back to visiting and commenting. ¡Hasta luego!

I'm glad you've had a good time, good food and fun together!
I'm not a haggler either, but hooray for Tina!

corn on the cob with butter doritos? That must be only in argenitina!! sounds interesting!

I love to haggle!!! it embarrasses my family though...atleast until they get a better price! :)

That does sound like a successful quest for leather! And the food sounds wonderful.

Mmm - I'm all about the food too - and I'm sitting here drooling because it's dinner time & I'm hungry. Sent Dr. M out to get pizza - I told him to surprise me. We'll see what we end up with!

Be safe on your journey tomorrow.

I agree, the best part about a vacation is the food.
