February the second restart of the year. Chopping hair and moving apartment (still in Buenos Aires, for now), plus a few odd photos in the Other Stuff section including my start back in to Roller Hockey.
|Funniest photo of the year so far!
|No more hair in my face, quick drying after showers
and much cooler in the summer.

Down sizing. At the end of the month we moved to a smaller apartment to fit our needs. Didn't take me long to get packed as you can see in the video. As well we had to leave a few bigger pieces with the renters we switched places with (they wanted a bigger place). The new government just removed electricity, gas and water subsidies so this seemed like the perfect move (pun intended) to cut costs.
Side Story: The new government assumed control in December taking over from a very immature corrupt team over the last 12 years, first the husband and then wife after the husband fell ill. They offered a bed of lies that the uninformed jumped all over putting the country in the worst situation it's been for a long time. In 2001 the peso and USD were on par, and today 15 pesos to 1 USD. Ouch! This lead to the new government desperate need to cut costs and save money so electricity, gas and water subsidies were removed and in effect all these rates jumped between 250% and 400%. Yes 250% and 400%. I wouldn`t make plans to visit Arg in the next year or two.
