Back at home, back in the ski resort bubble….

Today’s excursion took us to the Café Bohème, another very cool, funky, chill place to eat and drink and chat and catch up on e-mails…… or whatever else you do on-line. We ate an “ensalada Linda” with plenty of lettuce, and apple slices and avocado, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds and raisins with the house vinaigrette. Chapada bread on the side, and of course a latte … Continue reading ~ Café Bohème and Animal Hero Kids ~
