Principín Proprietario

View image

Some thoughts on the procedure.

A short note to you all that I have done something rather extraordinary (for me, anyway). I bought an apartment and I live here now. It has been a mind-bending experience, the complexity of which you would not believe. I enclose a few photos and a some writing that I have been doing to come to terms with the purchase.

I now have a lot more space, (2000 Ft. Sq. / 190 Mt. Sq.) so I enclose my new address and phone number for prospective visitors...



Sarmiento 1528 2D,
Capital Federal (1042),
Buenos Aires,

Congrats Tones!

So it’s done! Will you run us through the burocratic process in the next issue? I am very interested in finding out how you got the money into the country and all...

Nice text, good thoughts about ownership and devalidation of currency and credit disaster swiping the States, I was hoping someone would shed a light what's really going on, eppa.

And of course I would love to get to know your pink chorizo palace...

I wanted to say something sarcastic, but I can't. It's just a beautiful fucking apartment.

Dammit - Mitch beat me. My sarcasm subroutine seems to be in an infinte loop. What a lovely place. What is the name of the gay guy you got to decorate? He did a wonderful job.... :-) Cheers buddy/.. Brian

The place is gorgeous! 2000 square feet is an enormous amount of space for just one person. Since the three of us are crammed into our tiny one-bedroom apartment, maybe we should consider moving in with you! :-P

Congratulations on your new pad!

Happy just missed the move-in fun but will take full advantage for the next visit!

Felicitations xo Gabs

well done Anto, all you need now is to have a few kids, get married and land a job in the civil service and your all set.

thats nice you have left the unwashed masses behind, now landed gentry. nice lite fixtures. it would be worth 1 million bucks in capitalist S.F. congrats.

Congratulation Tony,

It looks like a great place.

Well as someone who physically helped you move in... Seriously, that has the farthest I've traveled to help someone pack. Do you have a fridge yet? AND the room next to the dining room is mine.
