|Mike Schramm grilling|
By the time Mike was done, the table was loaded with grilled lamb, chorizo, vegetables and cheese, and we dug in.

The clouds gathered as we picnicked; by the time we went for a walk through their Carrasco neighborhood, it was completely clouded over. Carrasco is a middle class barrio where all the houses were surrounded by security fences. We ended up at La Rambla, a walkway along the Rio de la Plata.

We raw a street sign bearing the name of a good family friend back home, then headed back to the house, knowing that we would sleep well after such a long trip and day.

I am traveling with a tablet instead of a laptop on this vacation, and although it is working well for email and browsing, it is not working quite so well for uploading photos and interacting with the blogspot platform; so it may be awhile until the next vacation blog post (this is being done from a borrowed laptop).
