Edaurdo woke up singing the queen song and that was because he has been fixated on buying a bicycle, he bought one named Zsa-Zsa and I rented one named Eva and we rode all around the city, then to the Cemetary then to Buda and got to the top of a giant hill, picnicked, napped then rode a chairlift down...a perfect day!

Last night as I was making dinner, Nathalya called and Eduardo invited her and Joel over for dinner, then a new friend of his, Lilianna, another Brazilian, called and he invited her for dinner too. It was great fun, I made pasta Carbonara and Nathalya made some Bolinho de Chuva filled with banana. Yum

Last night w had dinner at a pub where Nathalya´s boyfriend works,,delicious hamburgers and fries. Then Nathalya and I went to Corvinteto, the club on the top 2 floors of the old Russian department store Corvino. The rooftop is amazing!
I went to the main contemporary museum yesterday, the ludwig. Its a great collection with major works by Richter, Wesselman, Richard Hamilton and Geoffrey Hendricks, there was also a retrospective of the works of Braco Dimitrijevic. I liked the piece where 2 different interviewers asked him the same question...
