That was a nice long weekend and this will be a nice short week.

Just to give you an idea of some of the crazy hours we've been keeping...

Friday night was a Bible study that didn't go according to plan and we went to bed around 1 or 2 p.m., despite the fact that it was at our house.

Saturday we got up relatively early, that is, before noon. All afternoon Silvina and Emi were getting their hair done at the peloqueria and dressing and such, because there was a wedding in the church that night. They left around 7 p.m. Saturday. They came back around 6:30 a.m.

Sunday, after spending all night at the after-wedding party which was mostly a lot of dancing interspersed with a lot of food (that's what I gather from what they told me). I, of course, went to bed long before 7 a.m.

On Sunday the girls were waking up around 3 p.m. Around 5 p.m. we left to go to church. We
came back with friends and didn't go to bed till at least 2 a.m. for me, 3 a.m. for the others.

Monday was much more tranquil and I promise I was asleep before 1 a.m.

Monday was a holiday commemorating the death of one of the great liberators of South America - José de San Martín, commonly known (here) as El Libertador. The widest street in the world is la Avenida del Libertador in Buenos Aires. The actual anniversary of his death was last Thursday - 17 August - but they conveniently adjusted it for a long weekend. However, there was no mention of him the entire day. But then it's true I didn't get out much.
