Sunday, March 13Ivan had planned to stain the boards on Saturday but ended up taking an extra long nap, his body still recovering from being so sick. But that meant he had to get out there Sunday evening and get 'er done since Eduardo was coming the next morning to install the boards.
Monday, March 14Ivan and Eduardo installing the eaves (and faux beams) on the kitchen side of the casita. It was an all day project.
Tuesday, March 15Headed out early to Cordoba since Ivan had to get a full-mouth dental x-ray re-taken. We gave Rodolfo a ride, since Ivan wanted to pick his brain. Rodo, as we call him, had a copy of the book he helped write. It's about how tax policies can have positive or adverse effects on the environment.
Once the x-ray was done, we headed to Tadicor for our once-a-month shopping expedition. I don't ever remember having to stop for a train before today. Argentina used to have many railroads and railway companies but no longer. This small passenger train goes between Cosquín (just up the valley from us) and a large shopping complex in Cordoba. We think it's a twice daily run, but aren't positive.
When we got home from Cordoba, I was pleased to find my cousin Patty had posted some old photos of my mom on Facebook -- ones I'd never seen before! -- including this one of mom and me.
