Don't cry for him, Argentina

Augustine the Aleut, one of our most well-traveled Mystery Worshippers, has returned from a recent trip to Buenos Aires with a notebook full of impressions of the Anglican cathedral as well as several Roman Catholic churches. While there, he struggled to understand the porteņo Spanish that no amount of schooling can prepare one for, and (alas) had to deal with a camera thief as well! Read all about his encounters with pew confession, pearls and Prada, hugs and kisses, tattooed waitresses, priests in mufti, inquiries regarding work in Canada (and prayers to San Cayetano for same), and San Roque and his faithful dog.
