My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires, 8 years ago. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

Bistros , Taxis and Music


The music we listened to last night, among other things, while having an excellent dinner at a tiny French restaurant on a nice quiet street in Buenos Aires.
Where the owner greets you at the door as if you were long lost relatives , kisses for all. The ladies who wait on the tables and bring you whatever you wish for, are all sweet and friendly and seem to only care that you are happy. .. ( and well fed).
We celebrated our anniversary here and we celebrated last night, the first of at least two celebrations for someone special.
Dave Brubeck playing Take Five and Ray Charles singing Hit the Road Jack ... interesting mix, no?

The food was excellent, Seafood Souffle, Pasta with Mushrooms and Chicken in a Cream Sauce and the wine was a lovely Malbec. Dessert was Tarte Tatin... but who had room for dessert ?
Now let me tell you about the Taxi driver..
We were running late as usual, and the taxi came around the corner, I stepped into the street and stuck out my arm, he stopped. He gave us a nice hello then took off. As we were driving along, he waved to a man on the street, telling us that the man owned the nightclub on the corner. Then he told us that ( this is what we Think he said) he knew us because we walk with the Grande Perro ( big dog) .. yes! we said... so he is either a neighbor or he sees us often.
While we sat at a light, he wrote his name and mobile number on a piece of paper.
We now have our own personal Taxi ... I am so happy.
The evening was excellent, we were full, muy contento and ready for bed.
Sunday ! more celebrating. One celebration is never enough in my Book.
Chau !
