Time for a challenging themeless! (I can feel your excitement.) So, 14 Down (which I mentioned in my write-up last week if you want to cheat): It’s home to llamas/alpacas/guanacos (some or all; I saw them from a bus but am not up on my camelids) and one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. To serve out our quarantine, my fellow infected people and I were bused to a small city called Rio Grande and put up in a barebones hotel (more like a dorm, but way cleaner) called Select Inn. The ultra-warm and wonderful mother hen at the Inn, whose name is Cinthia, cared for us as if we were her own relatives, providing food, smiles, conversation, and much-needed laughter. Thank you, Cinthia!!! If you ever find yourself in 14 Down and are looking for assistance or advice, Cinthia and her son run a company called Odisea Fueguensa, which does just that.
I hope you enjoy the puzzle. I haven’t decided what’s coming up next. Guess you’ll have to check back next Sunday.
