On Friday, we took two buses back to Rosario. We boarded the first bus at 4pm and arrived in Rosario at 3:30 the following morning. Alex was sweet enough to meet us at the bus station. We went back to his place and since it was my last night with them, he made a very special drink for us. Lemon Champ is lemon ice cream blended with champagne. It’s light, refreshing and totally delicious! I’m definitely going to make it next summer in Toronto – maybe even sooner!

The trail by the river was overflowing with people out for a stroll, run or bike ride. People in Argentina are very healthy.
