8. Stunning! I have no words.

I was just there in February and couldn't get over all the advances and new construction that was going on in Moreno. Cute little cafes and salons it was nice to see. My Aunt just told me yesterday all that construction just stopped. Half built apartment buildings and business storefronts sitting there unfinished including all the machines just left behind.

She also said 400 restaurants closed down, from one day to next, in Buenos Aires due to those outrageous austerity measures.

It's sad and scary. The only thing that gives me a little hope is that Argentinians get out and protest en masse. It won't be long before we hear they make their voices heard. That's the hope at least.

Nice to know you're here updating me and my fam to the madness. Thank you! And no hay nada mejor que un matecito con buena gente 👍🏼🇦🇷
