Day 14, 15 – Walking around BA

Day 14 was a bit of a stretch but I got this desire to play an Argentinian guitar and even own one if all the stars aligned.   So, I emailed 3 luthiers and the second one that responded had a classical guitar for sale.   Shari and I had some fun traveling to the end of the subway line and then cabbing it yo the luthiers workshop.   It’s a long story that I won’t bore you without suffice to say, as of now, I do not own a handmade Argentinian guitar.   I’ve learned some, however, about Argentinian finance laws and banking restrictions.   Following our guitar purchase failure we walked through a large mall on Florida street and ended the night at Parilla Pena which was jam packed and served incredible steaks.   Today, we decided to visit Palmero – Soho, a rather upscale, even eclectic area and then toured a great botanical garden.  No purchases today so the kids inheritance is still somewhat intact.

Despite becoming more accustomed to travelling around BA, I find I’m becoming increasingly paranoid about crime.   Evidence of poverty is everywhere and I’ve been warned so often about being careful, I sometimes refuse to take a camera or, if I do, find it’s locked in my bag, tied to my chest, and not available to shoot until the shot has been missed.

  1. Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?

    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time
    making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely
    unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to
