bsas is such a cultured city, more than any other one i know. so many events, activities. but it’s true if you try to cross the street on a pedestrian crossing the cabbie will honk at you, roll down the window and yell at you for trying whereas in most other cities if the car tries to turn while you’re crossing, you are the one that hits the car and yells at the driver’s indecency. here, you actually feel guilty after trying to cross the street and ‘cutting off’ a speeding taxicab that’s going through a red light.


but like i was saying, they got culture here and they know how to use it. the locals shouldn’t be distracted looking to europe and the USA, they should keep their head on straight and look at what’s around them; they have set priorities grounded on social tranquility and chilling out and eating well, slowly sipping coffees and family. not as obsessed with owning things it seems.

joseph mills. great. i want van morrisonits not gonna make sense to go back to california. part of human nature is not understanding that life goes on even when you’re missing. people will still walk their dogs in parque las heras, girls in heels will still trip on the messy rocky buenos aires sidewalks, and youth will still close their eyes as they dance in bars in san telmo.(bruce gilden)funky town

(zulema maza. this is drawn with ink) yesterday i explored boedo and chacabuco and caballito and i love those neighborhoods. ordered a submarino at a cafe. steamed frothy hot whole milk and a chocolate bar which you then stir/melt in to your hot milk and it becomes a chocolate milk.

had a conversation about the extreme disparity between rich and poor in the world. lebron james spent $171,000 in one night in a club in las vegas. $171,000. on alcohol. i’ll let that set in and add a picture of villa 31, easily 5 miles from where i am typing this:

i ordered a cafe con leche. it came with a small glass of sparkling water, i looked inside and felt like the effervescence of the  bubbles clinging to the sidesnan golden.i’m not one for piano-lamenting-love-ballads but this girl is blowing my mind. she’s ageless. does that make sense? she just doesn’t seem like a real person, but in a cool way

angela boatwright, i still love you: i like this song (ryan matthew smith, egg 450 degrees)

“I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money. I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down.”
— Jack Kerouacpalermo esta vivo all you need is 2 beers to change an anecdote into a story. IS THE AVANT-GARDE DEAD?(Hengki-Koentjoro)
