347. another break

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.

  1. 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.

  2. I’m really sorry about your mother..

    wish u the best!

  6. 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!

  7. 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.
