Bootsnall Notable Expat Blog

As you probably noticed, the blog has been barren for a few weeks now. Part of the reason is that we were in the process of returning to Buenos Aires from Cape Town. It feels much like our second home now. We are slowly unpacking our bags and are really hyped for the Argentina-Uruguay soccer match on Wednesday which will most likely decide if Argentina progresses to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. Are you going to watch?

Today I was stunned to find that Still Life in South America was chosen as one of the 15 Best Expat Blogs by Jessica Spiegel of Bootsnall Travel. Spiegel said that the, “writing is great, and the photos are plentiful.” I am elated to be included with such blogging legends as David Lebovitz in Paris. Thank you!

I appreciate all of my steady readers and the wanderers and expats who drift through. I’m glad that I can share my photos and impressions and perhaps even help other travelers on their journeys. You’ll be hearing my voice a little more often.

Chau y suerte.
