Mafia Morning

There were hundreds of stalky men in perfectly tailored suits and watches, kissing and patting eachother.  There was back patting and shoulder patting, there was nape patting and cheek patting. There were cigarettes.  The 30 women in the room had big purses and even bigger sunglasses and were beautiful.  It was the most mafioso event I’ve ever been to.  I kept waiting for someone to be shot.

It was 8 in the morning at the Park Hyatt and it was the meeting for the: Plan Estrategico Argentina Vitivinicola 2020

When all was said and done, not much was said or done.  Sparkling wine exports have skyrocketed, sales expectations are been exceeded and export taxes are being thankfully lifted.

Then there was more patting.
