Dear Maureen, great to hear from you and thanks for the comment! I hope 2013 will be full of warmth and colour for you too - I hear you are doing really well on the photo frontline! All the best, Arpi

Lovely post, beautifully-written. The little patitos are just too cute to eat really and I like the sentiments you express: back to reality soon but for now enjoy the beauty of Christmas. Haave a wonderful New Year!


Hi Steve, great to hear from you. The ducklings were a surprise to me too! I have often wondered what Xmas must be like in that kind of heat - surreal. Spoke to a dear friend in Queensland on Xmas morning...might visit one of these days though I never get further than London normally. All the best Steve, for the holidays and the coming year.

Pate ducklings - is this a Spanish tradition? They look too innocent to eat. I love pate but i could also go the whole duck.
Here in Oztralia we're still cooking hot xmas lunches in 33 degree heat and eating on covered decks while praying for a cooling breeze or, even better, rain. and rain it did last night. Santa did his delivery and followed up with a drenching. Best xmas present he could have offered. Now for the mountains of leftover ham and turkey and sweet things. Happy Xmas and a Malaga New Year.
