la vista

What a wonderful Saturday I've had... but it's left me totally, completely, and utterly wiped out! I promise to be more energetic tomorrow :).
For breakfast I tried a new twist on my beloved oats, Coffee. A couple of other bloggers have tried it and gave good reviews so I was excited. Unfortunately, I went wrong by thinking I could achieve the same success with instant coffee, I didn't enjoy it at all :(. On the plus side, I suppose the extra caffeine boost helped at the gym this morning, haha. Lunch hosted the second appearance of Carbonada, the glorious soup that made up for this morning's mediocre breakfast! This time my "mom" made it with rice, soy meat, potatoes, carrots, corn, and green beans, to which I added a sprinkle of fresh parsley. Perfection. The soup was followed by the usual salad. Ugly picture, good food.
Since the rain had finally subsided around 3 this afternoon, my friends and I decided to take advantage of the clear sky and actually see the city. We took the teleférico to the top of San Cristóbal and watched the sun set as we enjoyed a bottle of wine with cheese and crackers.
Yes, we did decide it would be a good idea to sit on the edge. But how could we pass up such a view! The picnic area just would not compare.Buenas noches Santiago! I was on top of the world ;). If it hadn't gotten so cold up there I wouldn't have dreamt of coming back down.But alas it did and when I finally did get home I was hungry for my overdue dinner. I re-heated the soup and had another bowl with a side of tomatoes... and more parsley. Scrumptiously satisfying. All I imagine needing now is sleep :) and on that note I hope everyone has a fantastic Sunday, I can't believe the weekend is coming to a close already!
