long way down II


the other day when my landlord came over to fix the "persianas" (wooden outside blinds) he told me to watch out for the elevator. i told him i knew. sometimes when you open the door the elevator isn't there, but instead 5 stories down.

he said in a shocked voice "why didn't you say something!". i told him "i just thought it was a buenos aires thing".

there are many 'dangers' in this city that we don't experience in the states. if i told him all of my concerns i would need a psychiatrists sofa to lay on.

maybe that was the point where i should have asked him for a fire detector in my apartment?
