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.

Glimpses of Where We Live ...

Getting around Buenos Aires

Clowns in Buenos Aires ( Pup knows this one )

This Mime is hilarious

Now my story of this Mimo .. 
We were walking  around the neighborhood with Pup on a  Sunday .
At this intersection you see in the videos.. he was doing his Mime thing.. there was a big crowd.
We waited to cross the street, we were walking, Pup and I .. the Mime saw him and ran over .. Pup was happy but not really sure about this person with a nose almost as big as Pup's... so the Mime prompty got down on his hands and knees and stuck his rear end in Pups face .. Everyone laughed, which to Pup was the signal that it was Fun.
So Pup promptly did his bowing to the Mime and hopped around, ready to have a go with a Mime.
The Mime then acted like he was afraid and ran away, everyone clapped and laughed and Pup skipped and danced all the way home ..


  1. Sounds like a smart Pup! Fun!


    p.s. I love the tango in that video.

  2. They are amazing , aren't they ?

  3. I can only imagine what a delight it must have been for the crowd that Pup so spontaneously got the point! He's a natural.

  4. Oh, I think that your pup is better than the mime artist !! hehe
