Greetings to those at the Rosario EFL Congress


Rosario

Update:Rosario founded in 1812; Adelaide, Australia founded in 1836 - not such a big difference. Perhaps the differences in architectural style are more the product of different cultures rather than the age of the two locations?

Dear Michael,
the picture in the blog for Rosario Congress happens to be a cemetery. We´d like you to know it´s the third city in Argentina, very much like Sydney or any other metropolis. Thank you for the information on blogs.

Dear Mike,

Thanks a lot for your posting, but I guess Barbara Grodzki is right --she's just sent me a message telling me about the "cemetery view" you uploaded..., and I believe this previos posting was written by her...
I'll send you a link with lots of photos of my city for you to choose from...;-))
And...yes, though I've never been to beautiful Adelaide, I´ve heard we have many things in common...;-))

A big hug,

Rita

As Rita says, it was me, Barbara Grodzki, who left the first comment. It was my first visit to your site
so it didnt make much of a difference to leave my name. But now I assume full responsibility and thank Rita for giving me full credit. Thank you for the blog opportunity.

Rita and Barbara - thanks for setting me straight re the cemetery! A little embarrassing really to make such a silly mistake. I found the picture under a Google image search for Rosario and didn't check it more closely. I can assure you that we do NOT have anything remotely like those structures in Australian cemeteries, so my point of difference between Australia and Argentina remains partly valid :) Thanks again.

Dearest Michael,

You are my idol..., having come out of this mistake... with honours ....! ;-))

In fact, this cemetery here is very posh ..., tombs competing for better looks..., not my type, but there they are!

Thank you, dear friend, for your dedication and your concern.

Love from Rosario! (let me remind you here your voice message was a hit..., and now I am glad the audience listened to it!!)

Rita

Dear Michael, again!
"Errare humanum est" but you definitely came off this with flying colours!
I really enjoy visiting your site and would like to hear you sing! Your songwriting looks really interesting to me.
You are right, cultural differences can be so amazingly wide! Barbara
