Some interesting e-mails found their way into my inbox during my absence.
My name is Mike and I have been reading and enjoying your blog. I have been to bs as several times myself and would like to comment on your lost in translation post.
(He then gives his take on that particular post.)
Anyway, I have some tips of gentlemans establishments you could visit while you're there. I highly recommend them and it's no big deal to just stop in for a drink.
The internet is really amazing. No other medium allows complete strangers to feel comfortable saying, "I really love your work, here are some strip club recommendations."
Here's another fun e-mail.
What's up Shawn? How do you like living in Buenos Aires? I'm from Miami and was wondering if it is worth checking out.
Can this guy be more vague? Could you narrow the scope of your questions, just a little? I don't want to be mean, but come on! (Okay, maybe I want to be a little mean.)
In the interest of being a helpful Buenos Aires resource, allow me to answer Pas' questions with just as much thought and effort as they deserve.
Not much. I like it a lot. Sure.
Thanks for writing,
I am going to miss these kinds of e-mails. I say that because starting today, the official "Disco Shawn is leaving Buenos Aires" countdown has begun. On November 15, I will be moving back to California after a year of lounging around the Argentine capital. I know it is sad, but let us remember the good times - the cynical commentary, the free mp3s, the pithy political analysis. We will always have our memories.
Over the next month I do plan to continue with the blog, so continue checking back for more of what I have been serving up for the past 10+ months.
