The restaurant itself is located inside a five star hotel in Bariloche. As far as I understand, it is named Tinto Bistró as well (as the other one he owns).

The article also says that there is no certain date for the Princess to come visit it, but Martín says that she is "very pleased" with his new project.

it's so sweet that phillip met maxima's parents. it's obvious there's a close relationship between the dutch and belgian crown princely couples. is jorge still at the hospital or was he released? where did they meet?

This is very nice to hear! I have never read about royals meeting with the non-royal families of royals from other countries before. I would love to know more about this visit. I wonder if photos will be released?

I have no idea how to post a direct link to pictures of brunopress but here is the link to their website.
BrunoPress
Than search for Jorge Zorreguieta and you will see the pics. I think it was during an event Prince Philip visited.

A second cousin of Princess Maxima, José Ignacio Fazio, featured on the front page of newpaper 'De Pers' . The Argentinian is an ice (speed) skater, which is practically the national sport of The Netherlands. This weekend he will participate in the World Championship speed skating in the Thialf Stadium in Heerenveen. Fazio is 23 y/o and hopes to be the 1st Argentinian who makes it to the Winter Olympics with ice/speed skating. He was discovered 3 years ago on a frozen gletsjer-lake in Patagonia by Dutch journalist Marnix Koolhaas, who invited him to come to the netherlands to skate in marathons.

He says that Maxima does follow his path to Vancouver and that esp. the Prince f Orange is enthausiastic, he even keeps a scratchbook (?) where he files articles about Fazio.

Complete article in Dutch here.

Maxima's mother is very chic. She seems like she is a bit more petite than Maxima, but even with the sunglasses, I can see some resemblance between mother and daughter (the shape of the face, coloring).

Jorge Zorreguieta and all the other ex-ministers of the Videa regime between 1976 and 1983, will lose their allowance of 800 to 1000 euros a month that upto now they received (aditional to their normal pension).

Article in Dutch:

Nieuwsberichten Royalblog.nl: Jorge Zorreguieta raakt toelage kwijt

-----
In the mean time I think Jorge Zorreguieta congratulated the newspaper La Nacion for existing 139 years: http://www.lanacion.com.ar/nota.asp?...gh=Zorreguieta And here something about Mr. Zorreguieta and the Basque-Argentinian foundation: http://www.lanacion.com.ar/nota.asp?...gh=Zorreguieta

Jorge Zorreguieta is the president of the Basque-Argentinian association. He discusses the mysterious origins of the Basque people, whose culture is more than 7000 years old. There are many people in Argentina who are of Basque heritage, himself and Maxima included. His association does many things, such as organizing trips to the Basque country, giving lectures on Basque history and culture, and lessons in the Basque language.

This is interesting to me. I studied the Basque culture during my undergraduate days, and found it fascinating. I had no idea that Maxima was part Basque. I wonder if she speaks the language? From what I know about the language, it is completely unrelated to Spanish or any of the Romance languages, and quite difficult to learn.
