    A truly awful, awful football game

    Nov062009

    Argentinean football fans may want to look away now – earlier today I went to see River Plate play. It was one of the worst games of football I’ve ever watched. I now know why any decent Argentinean players leave for Europe.

    Yesterday my good friend Richie arrived. He was extremely happy to see me waiting to greet him at the airport. I was a bit tired though (his flight was in at 8am), as was he. What we ended up doing last night isn’t our average Saturday night...

    Steak and tango part 1

    Nov062009

    Last night I pigged out on lots of meat. Not for the first time in Argentina I might add. Meat here is a big thing, and unless you’re a vegetarian, you’ll be eating lots of it here.

    Eats off the beaten track

    Nov052009

    Last night I hooked up with Wil and Mauro. They think I’m stalking them around South America. I’m not. Honest. I just happen to be going to the same places they are. I’m not the only one either.
