Nestor is dead!

Ok I heard about this yesterday but, of course reactions are delayed and Buenos Aires was more or less closed for the census.

On another bright sunny day we took the subte into town, we had to get some shoes from Darcos, we had checked the address and got an address in Sarmiento and I always thought it was in Suipacha.  1,161 more words

The Old Post Office

There was still some shoes to buy, we have an order from a non tango dancer; sparkly, not too high, red or black, closed toe. The closed toe was giving us problems, Flabella could not (or would not) help, Comme il Faut said only non dance shoes, so today we tried Tango 8. 551 more words

It took some time to raise Viv this morning, the hectic life is getting to her, but after finally getting herself ready we headed out about twelve thirty. 787 more words



Another of Sally’s recomendations is the Rosedahl, so I thought we would have a relaxing day there. I spent twenty minutes with the Guia T trying to decide which collectivo to take. 799 more words
