&c, &c

I'm back in the Oriental Republic of Uruguay, old town named Colonia del Sacramento on the Rio de la Plata after a sojourn in BsAs. Seems pleasant but I've not explored yet.
I got a haircut a few days ago in San Rafael that was a throwback experience. Guy took it down a bit with the machine, then shortened it some more with scissors, then finished it off with a straight razor. Demossed my ears and cleaned up the neckline with the razor. Haven´t had a haircut like that in decades and really loved it. I guess you could get one in a high-toned shop, but this one just cost me 15 pesos, less than five bucks.
