Freshly returned from Buenos Aires, I am. It´s a great city even if I did have some problems accessing this site from there (hence the lull). In any case, for those following my language struggles, you´ll be pleased to know that 4 days speaking Spanish has rendered me all but incoherent in Portuguese.
And while we´re on the Spanish-speaking front, animal law is alive and emergent in Spain. This website, put together by Marita Candela, a law professor in Barcelona, is an excellent introduction and resource.
