Fleeting thoughts before leaving Beunos Aires

My flight to South Africa is later tonight, but here are some final photos and thoughts before leaving BA.
1. When you order coffee or tea, they give you a shot of soda water with it. I don´t know why this idea hasn't caught on in Europe or the States yet.
2. If you click on Emily's blog on the left, she has a nice analysis of the pros and cons of the seated throne versus the squat toilet. I think the bidet deserves an equally eloquent ode, especially since a crudely exposed tap and plastic pitcher await me in India.
3. The men in Argentina have no shame is staring at a woman, and it's unlike anything I've ever experienced. I mean, the men in New York will, usually, try to be discreet, and in Italy they'll tease you, but the men here simply stare. Occasionally, it's flattering, but often I want to channel the drill Sargent from An Officer and a Gentleman and shout, "Why are you eyeballing me, boy?"
4. After meeting a bunch of really nice and really beautiful women, I have decided that we all have the same problems with men and most of us are under-appreciated.
5. To be fair to men, I've also so met some really kind and generous ones who have showed me the city and given me some of the best compliments. My favorite was when one suddenly grabbed my hand and said "you're such a nice girl!" No one in New York ever compliments anyone on being nice or kind. Beautiful, yes. Smart, maybe. But never nice. Which is a shame; it's really my favorite one.

Hey guys!

I know some folks here who have gotten results with Male-Extra penis enhancement pills. Im just about to order as i've been hearing amazing results with it. But first off, I want to know if Male Extra does it work as good as they say it does?

I know 1-2 inches Penis growth is realistic and easily accomplished. But I'd like REAL FAST penis growth in the 5 inches range. Dont laugh, I want to have the best penis growth possible because my new girlfriend dated a friggin porn stud!

Guys here know what im talking about?

I make that I NEED to know the best way to enlarge Penis. Male-extra pills promises 3 inches growth within several weeks or they return your money. So I guess that essentially means, if my penis dont grow real fast? They lose money, coz I got to use the pills at the same time get my money back right?

Does this seem like a scam?

Please reply at the soonest possible time!
I need to make a decision fast!

Im already sold on it to be honest, but I just need that one last push so I dont put this off any longer.

The advertisement for the pill I last saw at this site. I hope its still there.

K guys thanks. Hope to hear your feedback alright? Bye :D
