A Year After the Mayan Apocalypse

2013.Dec.31 Tuesday

Proofed and Ready to Print

2013.Mar.25 Monday

I don’t often post twice in one day, generally I only post 2-3 times a week, but since this afternoon the final approval copy of my new book arrived via Fedex and after flipping through it I confirmed with the publisher that it’s ready to go to print, I can’t, obviously, resist posting a second […]

Blessed Bread with Chewy Soul

2011.Oct.29 Saturday

The title is from Wally Glickman’s Ode to a Bagel, do check it out. Expat culture is not homogenous, it is made up of people from a large number of countries and cultures. Each expat comes with not only their personal quirks, baggage, hopes and expectations, but often their cultural ones. While those of us […]

Fish Gotta Swim…

2011.Feb.05 Saturday

“I love fishing. You put that line in the water and you don’t know what’s on the other end. Your imagination is under there.” – Robert Altman, Director My recent trip up to San Pedro got me thinking about the various fish that are available to eat here in Buenos Aires and surrounds. It is […]
