Our jacarandas are in bloom:

Let's hope this is a "politically correct" topic and this post won't get deleted. LOL!

Beautiful....wish I could be there to enjoy spring time!


Still not sure what I said that got the other thread deleted. I was trying to play nice. I have always thought an understanding of the historical and cultural context of places or events makes a visit more interesting. Guess I will stick to where to go for a cortado or a good steak in the future.

It should be quite obvious that "an understanding of the historical and cultural context" should be of interest to tourists, but, as I told you by e-mail, "never underestimate the power of radicals...."

Your post went right against THEIR "Historia Oficial".
