What to do on a rainy day?

What to do on a rainy day? Here’s our suggestion for today:

German Film Festival at Abasto Shopping
Tuesday 28@15.30hs
This is the story of what happened in 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin, when the German Olympic Committee decided to ban the participation of Jewish athletes.

Tuesday 28@17.40hs
Road-movie full of tension: two television journalists, a doctor and a nurse, all Germans, and an Iraqi driver embark on a dangerous, almost insane, travel by van through the desert from Baghdad to Fallujah, to get medications for a hospital.

Tuesday 28@19.40hs
Day comes
Excellent directorial debut Susanne Schneider (also wrote the script) that shows the unhealed wounds that left in the German society of terrorism by the 70.

Tuesday 28@9.30 pm: Modern? Jazz Band
Callao 966

What if in the same concert a band starts playing modern jazz and switches to jazz of New Orleans? 
To give that answer now is the Modern? Jazz Band, a “Big” made especially for the night of Notorious by pianist and arranger Manuel Fraga.

Tibetan bowls @ Home

Have you ever tried a sound massage? We did and loved it! This is why we have this new service at Home Spa.

Singing bowls (also known as Tibetan bowls) are instruments that produce harmonics sounds. Today they are employed worldwide for meditation, trance-induction, relaxation, healthcare, personal well-being and religious practice.
They reduce our tensions and arouse the sleeping part of our subconscious, predisposing health benefits.

Get an optimal state of relaxation, pleasure, elevation and harmony. Leave the noise and grit of the city behind and step into Home Spa. OMMM…
