|Rocking with Dave on La Margarita with Sue and guests looking|
Last week I was on La Margarita to meet Sue a friend of mine who has lived in Argentina for number of years in San Rafael near Mendoza. She hadn’t been to La Margarita for a number of years so it was good to catch up with her and have a good old chin wag about life in Argentina and beyond. She came with Dave vonKleist her fiancé who I had never meet before . As it turned out Dave had built himself quite a reputation in the USA as a broadcaster and as the maker of one of the most important documentaries on the strange case of the tragic attacks of 9/11 which those of us who were around at the time will never forget. It’s a great documentary, very interesting and deeply thought provoking - I really recommend having a look at it – here is the link
It also turned out that Dave is an excellent musician to boot and I am delighted to say I had the chance to sing a few songs with him (although it seems he didn’t like Horse With No Name a lot!), which was fantastic. All in all it was a lovely weekend to see Sue with daughter Tiv and to meet Dave and have the chance to rock and roll a bit with an excellent musician and I look forward to their next visit very much - come back soon – that’s the great thing about owning La Margarita you never now who you will meet next .
While I am talking about musicians I like and admire some of you who have read my blog over the years know I am a big fan of Sir Keef Richards of the Rolling Stones. On La Margarita he was once voted the happiest man in the world – well on paper that’s how it looked so he got the vote. Well I have just purchased his autobiography so all is revealed and I will see if our assessment that drunken night with guests on La Margarita about Sir Keef being extraordinarily happy was right - I will let you know
