All work, doncha know...

So after an arduous morning of doing laundry, reading Bruce Chatwin, and writing in a cafe whilst eating dulce de leche churros dipped in hot chocolate, I needed a break.

(Seriously - I forgot to get money out for my churros, and I wound up having to go to THREE banks to get out the 20 pesos I needed to pay. Buenos Aires ATM machines were FUCKED UP today. It was brutal.)

So I decided.... to go to the track!


Hipodromo Palermo is a beautiful, and enormous, track. At least as big as Belmont, if not bigger. And their picnic tables totally have ours beat.


If only because they are populated by charming portenos.


The races started at 3, and go until TEN O'CLOCK AT NIGHT. These guys are serious.


As the sun sets, everything looks more beautiful - the horses, the jockeys in their silks, the churned-up track.


But I wimped out. The wind kind of went out of my sails when I bet the trifecta (2 whole pesos!) on 8 1 6, and it came in 1 8 6. The kind of close that just makes you sad.

But I promise, I will be back. And I invite you all to come with me. And women get in free! Buenos Aires is my kind of town.

Whereas a resume provides more factual and brief information about you, your educational background, experience, and qualifications, a cover letter is written as a more subjective paper that reveals more information about your personality. You can ask professionals to
write my cover letter.

Does the office treat individuals of any age together? Or on the other hand are teenagers kept isolated? Research demonstrates that youngster tranquilize rehab has a higher pace of progress if the pre-adult patients are carefully isolated from grown-up patients.What about the 12-advance model: does the office buy in to that? Provided that this is true, know that there is an otherworldly part to this sort of treatment.

Word conglomeration of don't you recognize. Used to complete a sentence containing information that is really obvious. Henry Miller became a bigger-than-lifestyles all-American creator. His work becomes floor-breaking and breathtaking. However, he could also communicate.

Hi. I had an exciting situation several years ago. I invested a small part of my savings with an investment company in one of their projects that they advised me. And I forgot about it. Literally, 2 weeks ago, I received a call from this company Aetrust and said that I could take a commission from my deposit. It turned out to be a huge amount.

Blogger Ooddles Natural Premium Dog Food - Grain Free & Hypoallergenic Dog Food By Ooddles Kitchen said...

Ooddles has been developing dog food since 2016; it all started when a family member of a breeder became aware of the low-quality ingredients used in many dog foods commonly available. After extensive research, they developed two formulas with leading UK manufacturers. They launched two dry food products, the original two lines called Game On and The Catch which became very popular, very quickly, and still very popular today, these formulas were aimed at crossbreeds, although suitable for all breeds. Always selling out of the two lines, it became apparent the food was well received.
