- Out with a bang in Salvador ==Bang! Boom! Bang! Boom!==

- Perfecting the tango face in Buenos Aires The door flung open and he burst in wearing head to toe black. There was a kind of glimmer in his eye that said this man meant business.

- Who Am I?
I get around, you know? I'm a professional visitor, a homeless (is that a typo?) romantic, a voyageur of sorts, a guy who wonders what‘s around the next bend. I spend most of my time outside. I' Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Jun 21, 2013
