Short and Sweet

I’m too bogged down in homework and other projects to write extensively on the blog, which is why I haven’t posted anything about my father’s visit to Rio (which was wonderful) nor my recent weeks playing house parent (enlightening) nor my trip last weekend to a tropical paradise (to recover from all the craziness). But here are some pictures from that last one, a sort of teaser until I can post some words to go along with them. It was a great private retreat, one I desperately needed. And it exceeded my expectations!

View from the breakfast table.

The view out the bedroom door...

Oooh...fried squid rings, chuchu with a mustard-bechamel sauce, salad and rice mountains. Delicious!

My "can this GET any better?" face.

These are some of the rocks at the private beach I kept sneaking off to...

Aren't you girls funny? It's a shame that Anna doesn't read your blogs because she might be mad that you are stealing from her bag of memories...
