Wow 2011 went so fast and went even faster as we approached Christmas Day and New Years eves. That was mainly due to the great guests who came to La Margarita for the festive season to help us use up the remainder of this years wine carefully chosen by our newly qualified sommelier Susana (congrats Susana and may it led you to great things).
Christmas is always a great time on La Margarita and we always have a great eclectic mix of guest come at this time of year – this year was no exception. Amongst others on the estancia was Marion Milne the well known documentary maker (have a peek at her profile http://www.pbshowfolio.com/marionmilne ) who did the five part docu on the Queen recently. Richard her husband is a venture capitalist and some guests had a bit of fun as they tried their hand at being in the Dragons Den and pitching some ideas to him to see if he would let them have a cool half a mil! Unfortunately it didn’t work and we all left empty handed!! – la vida eh.
On Christmas night we had our usual fun and games with live music, joke telling and this year we had a Danish party trick of having to visit every room to celebrate Christmas lead by Mette And Stina from where other than Denmark. Alice our volunteer taught a few cool moves on how to dance salsa, which was really fun.
Isabella, Marinas and Ignacio’s daughter song a song which we couldn’t get out of minds for days after and Sam from New Zealand terrified us with the famous New Zealand war weapon the haka. Alex played some great songs on the guitar, as did Jennifer from the UK.
New Years night was a lovely night with guests from Sweden, UK and Argentina.
Its definitely a great time to be on La Margarita and I want to give a big thank to all of our guest who came to help us get into the party mood and party with us.
Its now already 4th Jan and before long it will be 4th July- time seems to move so fast. Still hopefully for all of us it will be good year and if you need a place to escape to for break you know where to come -we very much look forward to welcoming you.
This is David Cummings alias The English Gaucho wishing you all a very Happy and Carefree New Year
