Budget bobber from Buenos Aires
BA is the greatest city on earth. I went there on a job once. Watched a River Plate game with Dan Walsh (I know it should've been Boca, but they were playing away). Walked for miles. Ate at Sucre. Stayed at the Ritz (was it the Ritz, Dan?). Had one of my biggest nights drinking (and didn't chuck-up) in some Irish bar Dan called home. Bought nice socks from Felix. Walked around the amazing junk shops. Bought an old Michelin tin sign for my office/shed.
Anyway, it all came flooding back when I saw this email today.
