Yes, it was unbearable. Fortunately, today there is less smoke than yesterday. We are hoping for a change in the wind direction to bring back the "good airs".
Thank you lucien:flowers:

are this reading glasses?

I have to say that this is so far, at least regarding the local media coverage, a low-profile visit indeed. I only found this short announcement of her participation in the microfinance seminar in La Nación newspaper:

LANACION.com

Microcréditos. Pasado mañana, la princesa de los Países Bajos, Máxima Zorreguieta, y el presidente del Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo (BID), Luis Alberto Moreno, abrirán el seminario de microfinanzas en la Argentina. Ese día se reunirán más de 100 líderes del sector de servicios financieros para debatir sobre las perspectivas para poner en práctica los modelos exitosos del negocio de las microfinanzas.

I will keep on searching though!

Well, I don't know who has gone with Maxima, but it sure is not Alexia, because she was on the Christening of Magali with her father, so probably Amalia and Ariana are in Argentina with mommy

Verde Esmeralda 04-21-2008 03:03 PM

Ok, it had to happen. Right after my previous post, I found the notification of the meeting with Martín Lousteau, our Minister of Economy, which occured one hour ago (source: Telam news agency):

Servicio fotográfico de la Agencia Nacional de Noticias Télam

Telam: Economía - Lousteau se reunió con Máxima Zorreguieta

Máxima wore a colourful outfit, with stripes. I am afraid I've seen it before. Am I right?

Marengo 04-21-2008 03:04 PM

I think they deducted it from Amalia and Ariane's non-presence in at Magali's baptism, but that doesn't have to mean that they went with their mother to Argentina. Amalia might have gone to a birthday party of a schoolfriend, to a club or maybe she has a cold. And they might have decided to keep Ariane in the care of the nanny at Villa Eikenhorst too.

ANP also has a picture of Máxima meeting that minister, look here. Máxima looks very good IMO, the best in a long time. The outfit looks nice and the hair is done nicely too. How old is the minister btw, he looks very young.

They seem to be (is she short sighted?). I love the way they fit her btw!

Her hair looks really well arranged and neat. I am not really sure about the outfit... as I said, it strikes me as known. Does anyone remember if she wore it previously?

The Minister is young indeed. He is 37 years old.

Maxima looks lovely. I like her hair and I do like her outfit. She shines.

More on the meeting with Martín Lousteau:

Por un programa de créditos para microempresas, Lousteau se reunió con la princesa Máxima

MinutoUno · ¿Para qué se*reunieron Lousteau y la princesa Máxima de Holanda?

Martín Lousteau se reunió con Máxima Zorreguieta - 26 Noticias



They all tell more or less the same - the reasons for the meeting, the present and perspectives of microfinance in the country... but do no go further on Máxima's visit, only reproduce what the press release from the Ministry of Economy states. And they all bought the same picture btw...

ashelen 04-21-2008 04:01 PM

pity, the same photo everywhere! she looks great, i like her hair like this! and her handbag!

Regarding to the way the glasses are placed on her nose I would say no.

Usually reading glasses are placed much deeper on your nose.
The ones Máxima wore look like normal glasses, you use when you are short sighted.
