This new living area in the loggia is a vast improvement over the old arcade which you can see archived in the blog. Now the Casa Vieja has access to Casa Nueva bedrooms during a thunderstorm. Now you can comfortably dine outside in all weather surrounded by lily ponds which keep the place cool as well as look beautiful. There are a couple of places to lounge and in the winter you can even light a fire in the new fireplace. And if you make it up the spiral staircase before too many cocktails are served you can see the parrots fly to their roosts at sunset or star gaze into the night.
