A German lady

Route 12

Halfway between Posadas and Puerto Iguazú in the small village of Monte Carlo there is a restaurant near route 12 with the name of Las Palmeras.
The owner of Las Palmeras is a German lady called Norma Ester Krüger. Her accent betrayed her German heritage.
What’s a German lady doing in the middle of Argentina with a restaurant near the highway? The specialty at Las Palmeras is grilled chicken.
I haven’t read a newspaper for five days and I miss the physical newspaper as my own child.
Waiting for a miracle I stopped shaving. My beard is a small disaster. But that’s a good sign. If the gods are on your side they send you small disasters.
