[Art] Hush

I started redecorating my appartment!


[Drawing] (blue) Hatty saying sorry

Another drawing which seemed to come directly from my hand. Hatty is blue, as a reference to Dr Manhattan, or maybe to the Vineans from Yoko Tsuno. He is saying "Sorry" to TNT, probably because "Sorry seems to be the hardest word".
He looks as tired as I feel...


[Friends] Family visit.

My friends Srinivas, Jyoti, Vaishali and Katia are visiting me in Chile.

I took them to Algarrobo
to restaurants
We played board games
We are having a lot of fun!

This picture for my favorite Angry Bird fanatic, wherever she is:


[Recipe] Friand

Several friends asked me for the recipe for the Friands that I do with the white of the egg when I do pies.
Here is one from http://userealbutter.com/2010/02/21/friands-recipe/:

slightly modified from Donna Hay’s Modern Classics 2

4 oz. (125g) butter, unsalted
1 cup almond meal
1 2/3 cups confectioner’s sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
5 egg whites
1/2 tsp almond extract (optional)
1/3 cup raspberries, fresh (or any berries)

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Place butter in a saucepan over low heat and cook until
melted and a light golden color. Set aside. Place the almond meal, confectioner’s sugar,
flour, and baking powder in a bowl and whisk to combine. Stir the egg whites into the
dry mix until combined. Pour in the butter and stir until completely combined. Stir in the
almond extract (optional). Grease a dozen 1/2 cup capacity muffin tins or tins of any
type. I like my square tins better (grease more as needed – Donna says ten in her
recipe, but I made 14). Spoon 2 tablespoons of batter into each tin and plop the a few
berries on top. Bake 15-20 minutes or until the tops are golden and spring back when
you touch them. Makes a dozen (or more).

Valentine BBQ + slackline + Frisbee

We had a pique nique in the parque close to my appartment.

I brought my slackline, and several people learned how to walk on it

My brownies had a lot of success!


[Sport ] Algarrobo run

On Sunday I went to a running event in Algarrobo:

I was planning to run the 10 km, but I finally decided to run the 5 kms (the 10k was going up and down the hill, and it was more fun running the 5k with Carlos). We took two selfies: one before the race:

One after the race:

We did it in some 27 mns (Carlos won, he is 10 years younger than me!), it was a lot of fun!
