Papa Francisco

The white smoke rises up from the conclave in Vatican City, the flags drape down from the balconies in Recoleta. Nationalistic, sky blue and white, Vaticanal virginal
white and yellow. Catholics have their first Latino Pope, Papa Francisco, and for Porteños he’s one of theirs. But has he cancelled the Sunday papers? Does he drink yerba maté?

Trying Out the New Toy

OK, so Ludd is in a bit of a spin.  In the interests of saving weight and space on the road, a shiny new device has been acquired, in the shape of an iPad Mini.  Complete with a nifty keyboard thingy.  This post has been prepared and posted using said equipment, via an app.  Ludd is being dragged into the 21st century by the toenails.   
There are some more posts in the pipeline, relating to our travels last winter, and The Navigator promises to get them up soon.  Being at home takes up so much time.
