Last tea with Val before departing

Well, the moment of the truth is almost here; I’m leaving tomorrow, guys! :D I can’t believe I’m finally moving to the States and getting married. There are still plenty of things to be done, so I can't stay here long. The most important thing I have to deal with today is Dimitri. After doing some research, we came to the conclusion that hiring a company to have him shipped is the safest option, so he’s not going to travel with me. He’s leaving today and spending a whole day with David before I arrive. You can’t imagine how anxious and worried I am! I won’t forgive myself if something happens to him during the flight. Please, send in some good vibes so he can have a safe flight to his new home! Thanks! ;)

Now onto the pics! I didn’t think I was going to have the chance to go for tea once more, but fortunately, I did. Val and I went to this perfect tea house called Magendie Ciencias Naturales. They don’t have a website, but I took lots of pictures to share with you. If you happen to be in Buenos Aires, don’t miss this place!

They have a very spacious, light and cozy living room, which is supplied with newspapers and books.

I ordered some iced-tea before Val got there. It was really good (but a little weak for my taste); they have a nice selection of blends.

I should have pretended to be drinking my iced-tea for the picture, but oh, well, I didn't know, haha.

We then had tea and some sweet delights.

There's also a small store where you can buy china, food and kitchen accessories. Unfortunately, we didn't buy anything (not because we didn't want to).

I'm so going to miss Buenos Aires city and its lovely cafés and restaurants! I hope I can find cool places in California, too. If you have any suggestions, I'm all ears! ;P
Have a happy Tuesday, everyone!

Agrandé la imagen para ver adonde queda esta casa de té tan linda, sólo veo el nombre de la calle. Es Ravignani, no? A qué altura?

Mucha mucha mucha suerte en tu nueva vida. De corazón espero que todo vaya bien, y así va a ser. Besos y abrazos.
