Believe it or not, you’re already twenty five percent of your way through the year, so congrats. Finally out of the red hot danger zone of summer, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Take comfort that you no longer need feel like an oven-roasted chicken walking round the city. Instead you can look forward to a bracing walk around the bosques, but then again, taking a glimpse at what Netflix is set to release this April, you probably won’t be doing much walking anyway.
With plenty of feriados this month, and most likely some unwanted family gatherings (the two go hand in hand really), it’s time to get your Netflix excuses at the ready.

April 1 – Disney’s Cinderella
Well done to Netflix for not putting Disney into the Kids category.
