I’ve got a globe-trotting friend and former L.A. Times colleague who has just returned from a trip to Santiago, Chile and Buenos Aire, Argentina. Earlier this year, he was in Shanghai, China. This dude really gets around.

The Wisconsin native is a graduate of the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and worked as a copy editor in the Food Section, which was and is adjacent to the pods of the Real Estate Section where I labored from 1976 to 1990 at the L.A. Times. We were two Midwestern car nuts in LA-LA Land and we became friends. I stayed in his Lake Shore Drive condominium during my July 2006 visit to Chicago.

He’s an editor with an international publishing conglomerate in suburban Chicago and is an avid photographer, as the digital pictures accompanying this story show. While in Buenos Aires, where it’s early spring, my friend and fellow Wisconsin native and foodie Dan Perlman enjoyed a meal together in an ultra cosmopolitan city where gourmet dining is a bargain compared with New York, Chicago or Los Angeles. Here’s a link to the meal they had in B.A.: http://www.saltshaker.net/20060926/tourist-trap-or-just-better
