I went for one of my rides into the campo yesterday, I do that whenever I am stressed or frustrated, and it always relaxes me. At the moment, the Níspero fruit trees are in blossom. These are actually a pretty high maintenance type of tree, as are the Chirimoya. With the Níspero, the tree produces huge numbers of flowers witch have to be culled in order to not over burden the tree. You will see in these photos, that they some bud stems have indeed been cut away leaving a more manageable amount of fruit for the tree to handle.
You can see in this photo where 2 or three flower stocks have been cut away and only a small stub remains
The smaller trees in this orchard are the N´spero, the others are Chirimoya.

This past Sunday during an exceptionally busy afternoon at the Restaurant El Asador a fire broke out in one of the kitchen extractor fans. With all of the wood in the restaurant the fire spread quickly and resulted in completely gutting the restaurant. Several apartments above the restaurant had to be evacuated with one family having to spend the night in a local hotel. Thankfully only two persons were injured.
It’s such a shame, because it had just undergone extensive renovations, the food was good and the tapas excellent. It was my go to winter bar when friends were in town, such a shame. Let’s hope it’s up and running in no time.
