New Years's Eve 13'

New Year's Eve Dinner - Dec 31, 2013

Buenos Aires has had a heat wave for 2 weeks
and our air conditioner conked out last Thursday,
we were almost going to cancel the dinner,
it was THAT hot and humid, but the new year's
eve Fairy was on our side and the heat
wave broke and it was tolerable.
Dinner was a success with good food and good friends.

Setting the table. I saw the streamers and thought they would look festive, but they just kind of looked like "Cousin It" from the Addams family.
