It has been a month that I had not posted. The first real break in more than 5 years. Extreme heat followed by floodings, a tanking Argentine economy and a hacked website are all reasons that could explain it. Yet the main driver was mainly the need to be off social medias and electronic communication for some time. If you did contact me during this lapse of time, I apologize for the lack of response. I’ll eventually catch up soon.
