Thanks to the magic of flight AF 417, in just a few hours I left behind the sun and the beaches of Punta del Este and the heat of Buenos Aires... and landed in the cold (not too cold, though: just 9°C) and the drizzle of Paris... But I also landed in the middle of Haute Couture's Fashion...

I got back from Paris and I'm going to Punta del Este. Behind are now the cold and the snow, the museums and the exhibits, Paris' shops... Ahead, Christmas and New Year's and the sun of Punta. Each place and life has its charm and difficulties... as it should be. All the same, I'll...

Of course, we wore white, with the mandatory bracelet to get inside, and this year we were requested to use a "GOA" detail, that is something reminding the style of the famous city of India, so well-known among Jet-setters, as it is Punta del Este. I had Indian earrings, very beautiful, and...

I'm glad Punta del Este has a boutique of European standards. From La Barra we went to Manantiales, which this year is "the" place to be in Punta, to the peruvian-japanese restaurant Sipán. We had octopus in olive oil, salmon sashimi, maracuyá tiraditos, suspiros limeños and an excellent...

And another reason is that Fiat always organizes its parties in Tequila, Punta del Este's most famous disco and night club. I go to Tequila once a year: to this party! Of course I could go other nights, but I don't allow myself to do so... I do not frequent night clubs... But if Christiano...

As usual, the Party that defines the season in Punta del Este is that of Revista Gente , which is usually held in one of the grand terraces of Hotel Conrad. The color dress code for tonight was, once again, pink: we had to wear a pink ensamble or just a detail of that color. I wore a short...

Specially for someone like me who, in Punta del Este, lives downtown! 38 km to go and 38 to return home... But for some time now all parties and social events have moved north... In fact, in ten more years we'll be attending parties in the border with Brazil... So tonight we went to the...

Anyway, I did lots of interesting things, as getting to know a new Punta del Este, more cosmopolitan and luxurious. For instance, I was invited to dine at the restaurant "Las Piedras" at the Hotel Resort Fasano: a marvelous place, on the road to San Carlos, in the middle of the woods and a...

As it happens every year, by December 26th Punta del Este gets crowded. And suddenly, from no activities at all, we start having three or four invitations a night to parties, dinners and other diverse gatherings. Of course, the first one to "open fire" was the already famous Lacoste Party in...

Punta del Este has become so cosmopolitan lately... I sometimes feel like in St. Moritz in Winter or in St. Tropez in Summer. Tonight there's another private party, this one organized by a Lebanese impresario. They say it's going to be spectacular. And days just go by...
