There's not much to do down here on weekends if you don't have money. The usual thing for people to have fun are bars. People here really like to get drunk and that's the coolest thing for everyone! I used to be like that for a while, but I guess I want something more from life than people here... Besides, Julian and I see that drinking too much with empty people and phony 'friends' is not only bad to our physical and mental health, but to our financial lives too.
We started working this weekend, so we spent some time planning classes and getting organized. We teach on Saturdays and we have to get used to the new routine all over again. Waking up early and teaching all day is a little tiring, specially after a month of vacation and waking up late!!!
This weekend Fiona and I played "Schrödinger's cat" ^^
The cat is alive!!! =P

On Saturday, after work, Julian and I opened a bottle of wine and had some chocolate. We drank a TEMPRANILLO, which is amazing with dark chocolate and cheese. So if you're having a fondue, that's one of the best wines you can have with it!
We also love to drink a good MALBEC. The ones from Argentina are our favorite. Wines from BODEGA CATENA ZAPATA are awesome. There's a red wine from Portugal called Messias that we also like a lot. Someday I'll write here about wine and my recent experience with it...
On Sunday we went down to my mom's house and I made us lunch, using vegetables and pork. It's one of the healthiest types of meat, if it's well prepared. Better then cow and there's less hormones then chicken bought in the supermarket.
I used three types of peppers (green, red and yellow), peperoncino peppers,onions, tomatoes, ginger, some fresh spices (basil, oregano, sage and rosemary, everything well chopped. On the pork I used salt and ground pepper. Everything chopped and cooked, served with Doritos. Here are some pictures to inspire you in trying to do the same to tell me how it gets:
Fiona was there helping me!
