Back to less restrictions but…

It’s the Tuesday after finishing a week of strict lockdown. June 1.

The cafes are back with chairs and tables, last week most were closed. A few choose to open but they only put a few tables out.

On Sunday nite, was the last nite of strict restrictions and being in by 6pm. After being in for two days, I decided to go on a walk about.

The parks were crowded with people sitting in groups socially distanced. Children and dogs were running about. And my favorite part, the sky was blue anc the sun was warm. Lots of folks just taking in the sun.

We are back to being in our homes by 8pm. At least the restaurants can serve outside again

Many are prepared for winter with heaters and blankets. Many have chosen to close. I read that 12,000 restaurants and hotels have closed in Bueno Aires.

Am sure, Paris, New York and many other large cities are experiencing the same loss.

But yet there are a brave few who are trying to figure out a way to stay in business. I support these folks.

On my way home on Sunday night I found a small asada outside one of my favorite little bars. I bought a churipan sándwich. And it was so good.

Enjoy. Abrazo

As to bio, I was born in New Jersey, and eventually after living in New York, Boston, Boulder, San Francisco, Castlegard, British Columbia and Canada landed most recently on San Juan Island, in Washington state and now am living in Buenos Aires since January 2020... For 35 years, years I have curated a contemporary art gallery, where I refined my skills and became the visual editor that I am now. Always with a camera or some picture capturing device in tow [including much heavy equipment] I began to travel and at the same time was introduced to dancing about 12 years ago. As the phones have improved, I have given up all my gear, including my beloved Fuji, Xt1 Pro for a good phone. Yes some shots are not as good on the phone, but for my love of detail and dancing, it suits me well. The secret of tango is in this moment of improvisation that happens between step and step. It is to make the impossible thing possible: to dance silence. Carlos Gavito La Vida es Tango! Tango es la Vida! Abrazo Grande
