Rest Days: Picnic in Parque Omar

Tuesday we had a down day. Too many long days to the beach and we get overtired. I know it’s a tough life but someone’s got to do it.

Since the city is essentially deserted what with everyone bein in the country side for Carnavales, we took ourselves to a nice city park called Parque Omar. I spent a little time there as a kid. Our youth orchestra practiced there for a time. It was fun to see the old buildings again. Brought back lots of memories.

Other than that old building this a park has improved a lot over the years. There are some neat sculptures and good trails for running and strolling. And family selfies during a picnic:

To be perfectly honest, our main purpose for visiting this park was our quest for raspa’os. We found them.

After all that, we dropped by one of the churches that we used to spend time at back when I lived here. Happily, there was a workshop going on when we stopped and we were invited in to see the place and say hi to some old friends.

As a capstone to the day, we met for coffee with my friend, Mani and her boyfriend, Felix.
