Dear Readers,


This Substack will be a collection of my writings about travel, life in Bombay, Buenos Aires and London, about Argentine tango, chess, literature, politics and other obsessions and about what I am learning after half a century of a life not always lived wisely, but often with passion. I’ll be posting three to four pieces a month: at least one of them brand new. If this piques your interest, do subscribe. Most written content will be available free, but at least one piece a month will be reserved for paying subscribers only, as a thank you for helping to support my writing.

If you enjoy my Substack, you should also check out the magazine I edit: Areo Magazine.

Why the name, The Second Swim? There’s a story behind that choice. Read about it here!
