The bicentenary celebrations in Argentina passed off peacefully; the reported millions who availed themselves of the free bus rides congregated in the capital to enjoy the stunning displays laid on for them. Every city, town and village seems to have done all they could to show that they weren’t being left behind.
Now it’s over, the lights and bunting have been put away for another day, and the usual discussions have started over whether too much money was spent on it all...
Instead of putting one representative picture on my blog, (not mine of course) with so many to choose from, I’ve opted instead to refer you to this link. If you like pictures, do please take a look at this couple of dozen, taken in Buenos Aires during the festivities, I found them very moving.
I'll be back to band news next time (as soon as I can write it, will try not to leave it a whole week before the next post).

A day out in the city of Bath - buskers and characters
In the quadrangle outside the Roman Baths, buskers and entertainers congregate every day to entertain the visitors. This young man was playing the violin - on a tightrope...
... yes, really.
These two opt for the more conventional pose...
My camera club friends with me were braver than I was, and asked this young man to pose...
This for me is the classic British bobby.
Bath door knocker.... and following the idea shamelessly pinched from other bandit blogs, this one has been included to show that as at this morning I've lost a total of 23kg since I was banded 18 months ago.
