Friends, Portenos, Expats: Lend me your ears.
I come not to praise exnat, but to bury it.
That’s right, after months of not posting, it’s time to put a fork in this little blog: it’s done.
My first blog, triptrap, was the travel blog I wrote in until I arrived in Buenos Aires and was written from the point of view of a traveler. As obvious as this might seem, it’s worth mentioning because when I ceased to be a traveller, when I began to feel at home, I needed something else. Here I was in a home. Not my home, rather I was a semipermanent visitor in someone else’s home. With this newfound existential angst I needed a new blog and here exnat was born.
I loved writing this blog and I loved the comments I received and the community I became a part of. I also loved plunging the depths of the expat psyche. It’s been lovely but all good things must come to an end.
But don’t worry, I will still be writing a blog. The difference is that this will be a blog about a real passion of mine: games. I’m just starting it and it’s called twoifiplay. While I’ll probably write about expat things every so often, it’s really an opportunity for me to share interesting games with people who might not otherwise come into contact with them.
So for those who update your blog subscriptions, I’ll be seeing you soon. And for those who don’t, goodbye and it’s been pleasant.
