I'm intrigued by the evolution of pre-flight boarding processes at different airports in different countries over the past few year. I have long ago set aside my predispositions for a fast efficient procedure and acquiesced to local customs, traditions and bureaucracies.
I no longer stress over the follies involved in boarding a domestic flight within the U.S. I don't always avail myself of the priorities associated with upgraded class of service, frequent flier standing or credit
Recoleta, at least for me, is one of the more walk-friendly neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. Guide books focus on the ritziest residences, fashionable hotels, trendy boutiques and the assemblage of fine restaurants. All of these are reasons to stay or visit here, but I am drawn to the more relaxed pace, the architecture, the tree lined avenues, the parks and of course a visit to the Recoleta Cemetery – where Evita is entombed in the Duarte Crypt.

We introduced ourselves to the Lead Concierge at our hotel (firm handshake with currency discretely contained within).
"We're guests here for the next three nights," I said "and we will likely need some suggestions. Can we depend on you for some interesting ideas?"
"Of course," responded the Concierge.
"Sounds good," I said "how about a couple of ideas for later this afternoon"

Almost all of the clients I meet in Miami, ask to have lunch or drinks at a restaurant in SoBe (Art Deco District of South Beach running from 5th to 15th Streets along Ocean Drive). I think these requests stem from the often filmed scenes appearing in so many feature films and television series.
I try to accommodate these requests by visiting Lummus Park and the adjacent beach stretching out into the Atlantic Ocean. Of course, we usually take a walk across the soft white powder (sand)!
Yep, no matter the language and whether or not you speak or understand it, you intuitively know what it means when you are standing in the boarding area and the last column on the flight announcement board lights up with something like:
cancelado, annulé, annullato, zrušen, storniert, ακυρώθηκε, отменен
Facial expressions change dramatically for the worst.
Cellular phones are frantically dialed and pressed to ears.
