Tremendous Weekend - Recording, Futbal and Jazz

I'm not feeling very creative or feel like doing too much fact checking at the moment as I have one of the worst colds I have ever had. Never believe anyone with a cold who tells you the 101 proof whiskey that you are sharing with them from the bottle will kill any germs they have. Ain't true.

But it was a stellar weekend. Started Friday night with a recording session with Roma's graffiti crew. Here is Roma toasting into the mic as Alex works the Pro Tools.

Mateo steps in and lays down a few tracks.

Wadaky then spit some freestyle.

We then went to a house party until 5:30am (well, I went to bed at 5:30- the graffiti crew kept it going until 7:00am).

Sunday found Andrew and I in the cheap seats at the Boca Jr. futbal match. Great fun. Kate, a friend of ours at the Buenos Aires English language newspaper The Argentimes hooked us up with the tickets. I stayed relatively high in the concrete bleachers to avoid the sun. Soon found out I also avoided the spit that came from the top tire. Oh, and a bladder full of urine at the end of the match. Pretty rowdy.

Met some great folk that day - a guy from Sweden down here working, two women from the Vancouver area (that's in Canada for you North Americans scratching your heads), and Jenni, a music producer from New York City. We had a really good time with you all.

Ended all with some great freestyle jazz at Del Tempo Cafe-Bar at Estados Unidos 523, just around the corner from our apartment. My cold had kicked in pretty well by this point (thanks for the cold medicine Nicolás).
