I have been thinking a lot about what it will be like in Argentina, and the truth is, I have no idea.  I am pretty certain however, that the speed of things will slow down, and that this will translate into the food around us.  I am sure there are fast food restaurants of some sort, but in general, I am imagining a place where people take time to eat, and drink (this isthe wine capital of South America after all) and to be together, in community, around food.  I am told that there is a LOT of meat in Argentina….even that doesn’t scare me even though I have probably eaten red meat a handful of times in the last 3 years.  For some reason, I trust that this is a natural part of the agricultural landscape and that beef is raised in a way that ‘s in tune with nature, and eaten in the same way.  I may be fantasizing, and creating an image that makes me feel better, but I know that the United States is so over the top in comparison to any other country when it comes to the way we raise, produce, distribute and consume our food, that I have faith it can only be simpler somewhere else.   Stay tuned as I find out.
