    A wonderful idea Rich One !!:) Something from End of the Game would be welcome. In order to safeguard your health I would not recommend reading the first few pages of 62: A Model Kit. My favorite novel of his but those first few pages are quite perilous.o_O

    Ries, have you ever made it to Virasoro Bar ? A small and intimate venue for jazz. Maybe not your thing.

    Interrogated by customs on flight out of Rosario. Why?

    All those in and out passport stamps will do it. Has happened to me multiple times.

    Sushi Inflation in Buenos Aires

    I just googled Yuki on Pasco. "Permanently closed". For my money it was the only place in BA with a decent selection of sushi. A pity.
