just had a pleasant next-to-last day of Burn the Old Year with Terry and his lady Val, upstairs at Harker Board. it was to have been the last, but Bryon changed his mind and is going to be open tomorrow.

on my way back, just a few minutes ago, I believe I crossed paths with the famous Kuroda-san, the Japanese guy who made a fortune selling high-quality plumbing supplies here in La Paz decades ago. he, if indeed it was him, was going into his old house north of the cathedral. the guy looked Mexican enough to me, but his answered "buenas noches" had enough of an accent as to be noticeably foreign though not necessarily Japanese. sometimes I wish I were a true polyglot instead of a goddamned Gringo with a few words of a dozen different languages. I'd love to hear the guy's life story.
