What I did
Buenos Aires nightlife, new friends, old sights, new sights, Tigre Delta, mosquitoes,
Just a quick note to wish you all a very Happy New Year and best wishes for a healthy and happy 2012!
Currently in Buenos Aires - loving the City even more than last time. Last visit was work based, this time I've just been relaxing, drinking too much, eating too much, sightseeing and meeting new friends which has been amazing.
Nothing to do with New Year, but in my view certainly some of the nicest words ever written, by Buenos Aires born writer Jorge Luis Borges:
"Estar contigo, o no estar contigo, es la medida de mi tiempo".
Being with you, or not being with you.....that's how I measure time.....
He also wrote: 'This city that I believed was my past, is my future, my present; the years I have spent in Europe are an illusion, I always was (and will be) Buenos Aires'.
I'm no Borges but these words remind me of my feelings about London sometimes! Perhaps that will change with time, but despite the fun and excitement here, I do miss things, and people!
Back to the madness that is Colombia on New Year's day.
Lots of love and all the best for a great 2012!
