Today is a special day in Argentina – Día del Amigo! That translates to Friend’s Day, and it’s a popular holiday. It’s somewhat like Valentine’s Day in the US, except it’s your friends that you take out for drinks, dinner, and sometimes gifts. It’s also a day for people to reach out to friends they have lost touch with – everyone calls, emails, or sends messages to friends they miss and don’t talk to as much as they wish.
It’s a lovely holiday, and, while Mara no longer lives in Argentina, we wanted her to still celebrate with her best friend. Mara and Rana both received an extra treat with their breakfast this morning – a delicious, juicy watermelon for each of them. They looked very pleased!
We couldn’t possibly be happier that Mara finally has a friend to celebrate with today! Happy Friend’s Day to Mara and all of our Argentine followers! ❤️

What a beautiful holiday to celebrate! I think I’ll start celebrating this in the U.S. Although I don’t think anything beats elephant besties who get to celebrate with watermelons. 🙂
