Mark Daniels
Who are you?

I am an Englishman who has been living in Buenos Aires for the best part of five years. Over the past decade or so my travels have taken me from Australia to Argentina, Botswana to Brazil, and Namibia to Nepal, among other places. During this time I have worked in sports shops and offices, as a football coach and children’s entertainer, in bars and restaurants, and as an English teacher and a freelance writer.

Ever since watching Diego Maradona cunningly and ingeniously defeat my home nation and then inspire Argentina to win the Mexico 1986 World Cup, I had a burning desire to visit the country; some 22 years later that dream became a reality.   more ...

When I first arrived I was renting a bedroom in a family house in Buenos Aires. But after a while I wanted my own place and so found a local company which had a list of apartments available for renting for weeks or months at a time.   more ...
