Hooray! Chuck lives! What a great list of things to do! Between Leandra and I were proud to say we've done it all save the view from the telecommunications tower--that's Antel right?--but once again, you've given another wonderful idea for a mini-excursion! Thanks Chuck!!!
Tell me about this grappa miel with lemon. Is that the hot alcoholic drink made in a cauldron and served on the Summer solstice?
