ESG: My favourite picture(s) of the month April

Unlike March, April was such a great month!

For once, instead of just taking pictures, I've been making my own. I'm actually getting used to it. Thanks, college (?)

Chilly days make an extra snuggly and sleepy Leti, even more than usual 
Medora, my latest doll, finally arrived! She's a Barbie, with a curvy body

I was lucky enough to be in the terrace at the exact moment this totally random balloon came out of nowhere

I found this picture hilarious thanks to those overly dramatic sculptures in the background

This is Tatyana, a travelling doll I've been hosting these last days.
I took this picture yesterday, it was such a sunny day (such a sunny weekend, actually)

ESG: My favourite picture(s) of the month March

March is here like the Monday of the year. Summer ends, which means buh-bye vacations, hello work/college.
And this March was very Monday to me, so... welcome April!

These are my favorite pictures of this month:

After being apart for 17 days, holding this cutie back in my arms left me on the verge of tears of joy.

This was the first time that I actually got to see this succulent's flower. Doesn't it look like it has a leopard print?

On a very sad morning this colorful little butterfly came to brighten up the day

ESG: My favourite picture(s) of the month Febuary

This last month went by like a flash, but, at the same time, it feels like I made the January's favorite pics ages ago. I just arrived home after being 17 days away on vacation, so that's probably why I feel that way,
So yes, as you may expect, my favorite pictures for February are from my time off.

I visited a friend at her home in Viedma (914 km from Buenos Aires) and we spent about 10 days in Las Grutas (+193 km).

This is one of the first pictures I took when I arrived. A sight of the old bridge, which connects the cities of Viedma (Río Negro province) and Carmen de Patagones (Buenos Aires Province) across the Río Negro (Black river). 
 Viedma and Carmen de Patagones were founded the same day, April 22nd, 1779, and work together since then, despite belonging to different provinces now (since 1878).
C. de Patagones has a better tourist exploitation of its historic past, so there are a lot of old buildings kept in the historic center of the city. 

This is from Las Grutas. I was astonished by the deep blue color of the sea, because until then the only beaches I knew where those from Buenos Aires, and their sea is quite brownish.

The difference in color is mostly due to the soil. Buenos Aires has a dark and scrambled sand, while in Las Grutas the soil is practically made of stone, as you can see in this picture, taken during low tide. The sea was so far away!

This picture was taken that same day, at San Antonio (W). That fishing boat in the background was aground, of course, but the tide was slowly rising, you might see the water glowing. I never saw before such differences between high and low tides.
This is from a beach by San Antonio (E). The clouds were so low and close!

More of these gorgeous clouds... There was such a storm that night!
That white beach, it'n not sand... it's covered in shells! Walking on them felt like walking on broken tiles
I took this picture yesterday, one of the last sights of C. de Patagones, from Viedma's side.
