When it was too chilly for the beach, this playground in Boca provided hours of fun for the kids. Lots of climbing space with little hidden areas of wheels and buttons meant imaginative play for the cousins – and the carousel offered a nice break before lunch.

We found a frozen bog while hiking through the woods, and did a little unconventional skating over mossy bits and frozen leaves. It was bumpy, but offered a way to enjoy the cold! The grandparents will be relieved to see that this time we were skating on very shallow water.

Even though we are not moving too far, I will still miss all this activity right outside our apartment door. Nothing like a lazy Sunday morning with a Bolivian Parade marching by in amazing costumes and performing dances right at your door!
