Still Learning One Language per Year

Quick update about my “one language per year” lifelong initiative:

Here’s an update of the current status of my “one language per year” lifelong initiative:

20 Years Ago

Exactly 20 years ago, on Wednesday February 20th, 1991, my mother and I arrived to Geneva, Switzerland, from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Migrantes de Vicente López

Me acuerdo de una fiesta en lo de Viole (una de tantas, qué se yo), allá por el ‘90, en plena época del Bilingüe (época del Austral, de la hiperinflación, del penal de Codesal, y de otras alegrí­as).
