What the Manolo Is…

Manolo says, it is Tuesday in Buenos Aires, time to see what the Manolo is…


Listening to…


The Manolo has been in Buenos Aires for the little bit less than one week, and already he is in love with this place. It is spring here, and the trees on the street outside of the Manolo’s apartment are putting out the leaves. It is perfectly pleasant.

As for the shoes, the Manolo is most happy to report that the Crocs are nowhere to be found! Finally, the Manolo has escaped this pestilence!

In the Manolo’s upper middle class neighborhood, the ladies favor the practical, comfortable shoes, which given the sometimes lamentable condition of the sidewalks, is forgivable. For the young girls, the tall flat boots are seen everywhere. While, it is still cool enough that the sandals have not yet appeared.

    I envy you so much being in Buenos Aires, Manolo! Have you eaten at La Biela next to Recoleta Cemetery yet? There is nothing on the menu that is not good, and the people-watching is superb. And I know Cafe Tortoni is touristy, but that doesn’t stop the food from being fantastic – make sure to drink a submarino which is fun to assemble and better to consume!

    Oh my, Manolo, you are moving to my home town! Will you be there in January? I shall stalk you like there’s no tomorrow!

    Ah Manolo, I adore Buenos Aires and the Argentine countryside, not to mention the delicious food and the most attractive men and women anywhere on the planet. You are indeed a lucky man to live there. Enjoy!
