Assado


Yesterday we had dinner at Fabio and his families place in the mountains,
They prepared an Argentinean dish Called Assado, which is a BBQ of sorts and was really good, in fact the Argentine Italian Diego, did all the cooking, a really very cool guy, I did the face of a lion on his calf. There were 30 of us there and I have to say that I had the most awesome time, I mingled and met young and interesting Italian, that are not very different to South Africans in their hopes and dreams. We ate and they drank and in all, our hosts worked really hard to ensure everyone did.
Fabio and his brother supply hats to the European markets they have two wear houses that they design and then have manufactured and sell to the rest of Europe, in the market for raffia hats they are the largest. With all there success, they are just down to earth guys that treated us to an awesome day.
Another week begins and instead of a day off I’m tattooing my host here, Beppe, and I hope it will go quickly as I have stuff to do today and certainly want to look around, as the stores only open a 4pm today till 8pm….. got to shop…lol
