chile's social life is unending. not a weekend without invitations to barbecues, get togethers that last into the early morning, lots of conversations, mixed drinks and vistas. friendships re-affirmed by common life experiences and love. yesterday dagna invited a group of us to her house up in the hill. during daylight we all gathered on the huge veranda, after dark around the fireplace and the kitchen island clinking cheers glasses, vowing to repeat the event at someones elses house in pirque.
