Early spring

How does the Barilochean astronomer know that Spring is here? Because the axis of the Earth gets perpendicular to the direction to the Sun? No! Because plums blossom!

Beautiful! It is a real pity that long time ago my wife and I didn't quite make it to Bariloche...

Looks very nice. From what I understand the Bariloche region has a reputation worldwide as a wilderness region (and looks quite similar to some parts of NZ).

More importantly Abramson, did you watch the Rugby (Pumas vs All Blacks) last night. :wink:
I was watching, but started doing some Celestia work on the computer, and forgot to go back.
Last score I saw was: AB's: 6. Puma's: 5.

Do you know who won?

The All Blacks won, of course. It was 21-5. But the Pumas played very well, receiving praise from the AB coach. As they did against the Springboks. Having been invited to play this tournament is an incredible honor.

Yes, Bariloche region, as the rest of the Patagonian Andes, and Patagonia at large, has well deserved fame of natural beauty (and fishing heaven!). Yet, the plum trees in the city streets are not native, of course...

Well, the Pumas have always been a well respected and tough team to beat, so I'm sure they deserve it. I thought they played really well in the first half, scoring the only try, and the AB's were making a lot more than the usual un-forced errors and handling errors. I didn't watch more than 5 minutes of the 2nd half, but it sounds like the AB's must have got a "bit of a talking to" from the coach at half-time. :wink:
