I’m not sure how many regular readers I have, but at least the people I write about don’t move very often!
I only spent a little over one month in Buenos Aires before leaving again for work; in fact, I’m posting this from the Basque Country. And since my mother passed away recently, there have been many things more pressing than maintaining this blog. Unfortunately she did not want a spot in Recoleta Cemetery… there goes my chance for a family plot 🙂
I’ll be back home in November, eagerly posting again. The frequency of posts may change, & the ultimate fate of this blog will be determined by the end of this year. Too much personal detail to discuss here, but I will likely be living in Lisbon (or maybe Madrid) by February 2010. Although I maintained this blog while living in Australia in 2008, it required a huge effort prior to the big move. I don’t see myself having time to do the same for Portugal. If work & personal matters allow for it, I’ll probably be away from Argentina for most of 2010.

Robbie, I am so sorry to read about your Mom. The first thing that popped in my head was the time when I was about 9 or 10 and the Beatles had just came out I had real long hair and one day when my Mom went to work I got you Mom to give me a Bealtes hair cut. What a shock it was.
I’m really sorry about your mother..
wish u the best!
Dear Robert, my sincere condolences, I am very sorry to hear that! All the best for you!
Thanks, everyone! It’s been a fairly stressful year, so I appreciate the comments.
estimado amigo sin conocerte personalmente ,lamento mucho lo de tu madre ,mis respetos,lamento tambien tu partida y espero tu vuelta pronto y desde ya agradecerte por todo lo que aprendi de esta pagina ,te deseo todo lo mejor y hasdta pronto.friend
Che, Nicolas – Te agradezco mucho… cuando fallecio mi mama no fue algo inesperado pero me choco igual. A la vuelta en noviembre voy a seguir con el blog… y vemos que pasa en el futuro. Es que hago todo esto por el amor que tengo por el pais y el lugar. A la vez, no rinde nada y toma mucho tiempo para mantener. Si tuviera algunos meses para hacer todo lo planificado con este blog, creo que podria vivir de eso. Mientras tanto, hay que pagar el alquiler :)) Abrazo!
Robbie, I talked to your Dad and told him about your Mom and he wanted me to send you this with his sincere condolences at this time.
Querido Robert acabo de enterarme; Magoo y yo lamentamos tu pérdida y te enviamos un gran abrazo. Esperamos verte en noviembre.
