A dinner

31 Aug

It was a house with a lot of love. You could feel it as soon as you’d walk in.

In the afternoon, a huge plate of empanadas had been cooked by Fanny. She said she had cooked another such quantity a few days ago for her other son, before leaving for the trip. You see, this is how Chilean mothers are.

In the kitchen, the lovely couple P. and D. were already busy mixing spices, cutting vegetables, melting butter. Some glasses of red wine were served, and we all gathered there and talked – crossed conversations, in different languages – here Danish, there Spanish, and then again English.

Later, at the table, it felt good just having this time together, enjoying the food. There were laughters, more conversations in different languages, and a wine competition between French, Italian and Chilean wines.

There was music, and some dancing. “You have to take the tango to your living room”, she’d always say. “This brings you happiness”.

And some more dancing.  Moving moments. Mother and son.

A dinner at our friends’ on our first evening in Copenhagen.
