Old Time Pictures











So 42 years ago the missionaries had one place they could go to for a steak. It was located on the cliffs overlooking the ocean. It was called Rinco Gaucho, an Argentine place with big steaks. We would go fasting and hog down a big steak. We never had beef except for the monthly excursion to Rincon. Well, they moved it about 7 blocks when they made the big mall LARCO MAR because that is where it was located. However, it was still really good as they is one steak divided for two people. The next place is the Donofrio Ice Cream place. Donofrio came from Argentina too and now it is owned by Nestle but it is still THE ice cream that one would eat in the streets. We went shopping for P day and really had a good time.

yum, yum, what a great way to spend your p day. Can you find a great place for cookies?

The kids brought down walnuts which are a little hard to get here and we buy a mix for cookies that is really good. Ice cream is big down there. While I cannot eat much with the lapband, I can defeat it's effectiveness by eating ice cream often.
