Just saying Hi!

I can't remember the last time I posted something here.
Today we (here in Perú) the "Día de la Primavera" or Spring day. Yeah. the sky is grey, temperature is ok: 20º C; not cold, not hot.
Thanks to El Niño we had a warm winter. No need to wear big coats or very winter clothing. Sigh.....what can we expect for summer????? Very high temperatures,'s uncertain.
There have been flowers all year long in my garden, birds coming to drink water from the figue tree. We put three bowls with water so the birds can come and drink it or, which is more fun, seeing how they take a bath.

This grey weather makes me feel grey. You just want to stay in bed. I have to turn on the heater to take a shower. Otherwise, you will be shaking from cold.

No pictures today, something happened with picasa that doesn't allow me to download all the pictures. Don't know what it is. Agghhh I must resolve that problem but don't know how!

Thank you for your time reading this brief post.
Feel free to comment ;-)

This last Thursday I went to a yoga class, a hatha yoga class. It was good. As I am a beginner and don't excercise much (or not at all) I took it slowly. The teacher was/is very nice. I almost could made all the moves, some require more practice. I felt great at the end of the class. Relaxed. At peace with myself and my body. I'm starting next week and lets see how it goes. I think it will be great. I do need to move. I must confess I am a sedentary person.

Even at school I hate it gym. I got migraines the days we had gym....and I only was seven (or eight years old). What I do like is swimming. I love not feeling the ground on my feet, I love the ways you can move, I love floating and letting myself go.

That's all, just happy to start something new and good for my health.

Happy New Year readers!
Yes yes I know it's February, but I have been procrastinating a lot of things since I came back from some family holidays we had in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

It's summer here in Perú and the heat is aweful. Thank god we have fans. No A/C but fans. That helps a lot.

From  the 8th to the 19th of january I was off line. No phone (the bill would have been enourmous), no internet, meaning no facebook, no mails to reply no whatsapp no NOTHING. And guess what. It was GREAT! I didn't miss it at all.
For the first time in years all the family was together. We had a great time, the hotel was great (all inclusive....yeah!) The beach was lovely. We had a chance to do some snorkelling, we swam with the dolphins, for the bolder ones, there was a pool with a dark shark and stingrays. I went there too, come one, it's a once in a life opportunity! I must admit I was a bit scary. They are in a pool but they are still animals!
I got a nice tan with a 50 SPF sunblock for children and a 70 SPF on the face. And a hat of course. 
Oh god, how I miss the Piña Coladas! And my white wine! And the mojitos and the beer....nope, not the beer. Sorry to say this but beer was aweful! And so was the red wine.

The personel from the hotel was very very attentive, always there to satisfy your needs. Of course, saying hello to them and thank them helps too!
The bathrooms were/are the most clean toilets I've ever seen. Even the one that was on the beach.

Something I did dislike is that it was for smokers, I can handle cigarrettes but Puros?? Don't remember the english for puros, oh cigars I think it is!  That was too much. Ew!!!!

It was such a bliss not to be connected to the internet. More important was to spend time with the family.
We had a lot of fun. I love them. Simple as that.

On the way back of swiming with the dolphins.

On the way to our room.

Enjoying a Cuba Libre

Sleepless in Punta Cana, sunrise.

Our last night, celebrating one of my sisters birthday.

And that's all folks. 

And you do not miss being all!! 
Just enjoying being with the people you love and the Piña Coladas ;-) hehe...
