Q.  Dear Oracle: in his visit for Latin America, did they prove some typical food of this zone?

Yes. The very first night the band arrived in Argentina, a huge (mainly) meat feast was served in the hotel's private garden to welcome us all. There was course after course of steaks in ascending quality. By the time the most incredible, succulent prime cut was served, everyone was full! I washed mine down with Argentinian *Malbec.

*Drink responsibly.

Q.  In the short time you've been in our country, have you tried one of our regional delicacies? like dulce de leche, mate (it's a hot drink) or asado? What do you think about them?

Well, we've been here for almost 2 days and last night sampled the delights of empanadas followed by various cuts of fine Argentinian beef (fyi: Chris hadn't arrived at this point and the vegetarians amongst us enjoyed fresh fish); that's practically asado covered. Phil Harvey lived here briefly and yesterday recommended we try dulce de leche which I ate earlier this evening... wow it's delicious! I saw some local women brewing up mate by a park but haven't had the opportunity to try it yet. I really must stop eating and drinking so much but it's impossible with so many amazing things on offer...

Q.  Dear Oracle, I come to you today with a matter of life and death (not literally, but it might turn out that way) right now I am freaking out!! I just heard on the news that all shows on the River Plate Stadium are suspended until further notice, what will happen with the Coldplay show on February 26th? Please, don't leave us without the show there has to be something that can be done.

I checked with management as a few fans had heard similar news and was assured that as far as we are aware the show is going ahead as planned.
