Our two months old son had a successful surgery today. A minor one, but since it was under anesthesia, it is still a huge moment of stress for parents. As the baby was recovering, I went to the bar next to the hospital to order a couple of sandwiches for take away. There I sat for a while, waiting for the food to be cooked. And then I thought about all these families/friends that must have waited for hours in this bar where time seems to have stopped. Sometimes expecting a good news, sometimes wishing for a miracle and unluckily, sometimes recovering from the loss of a cherished one.   (click on picture for high res)

I have returned from a 2500 kms road trip to Mendoza. To get there, one needs to cross the endless Pampa. This is quite an experience as you’ll go through hundreds of kilometers of desertic landscapes. Roads are straight and a curve becomes almost an exceptional event. Needless to say that as a photographer, you get bored pretty fast. (click on picture for high res)

With temperature below zero celcius here in Mendoza, not many people remain in the streets after dark.  (click on picture for high res)

Our delayed road trip finally started. I am currently in the town of San Juan, North of Mendoza. And since it was Sunday, I went for a climb closer to God. That is on top of the city’s cathedral tower.  (click on picture for high res)
