... respected, using the subject 'usted,' and informally if you know them well, with 'tu.' Well, here I've found you don't use either. You don't have to worry about formality. They have their own subject for 'you': vos. Everyone is vos. It's awesome. But they also speak like they think they're Italian which is funny.

Hopefully we get a few good sunsets on the boat before we encounter 24 hours of ...

... one of Mariana’s cousins and her husband. While all of them are locals, the view from the 29th floor was a treat for them as well. We had a great finger-food meal in the living room, with wine, sodas, fresh-baked empanadas, meat and cheeses, chips and salsa, and most wonderfully, lots and lots of conversation. To my surprise, the children had a great time. They were at first as taken with the view and the dizzying thrill ...

... to hold the reins. The whole group is then taken for a leisurely stroll around the paddock. I am quite pleased that I get the hang of how to control the horse to make him turn and slow down as I managed to get him out of the inside lane to the outside where there was more space.

We then enjoy a big BBQ lunch with steak, sausage, a sort of black pudding which was not nice and some very dried out chicken. This ...
