TBT: Inauguration of the Casposo gold mine ⛰⛏ in San Juan, Argentina in 2011
It was a brilliant sunny day. Dad and I drove from Mendoza to San Juan super early. Troy (ASX listed) had organised buses to take us up to the project so we parked at the designated meeting point and got on one of the buses. After a short ride we arrived at the mine's camp … Continue reading TBT: Inauguration of the Casposo gold mine ⛰⛏ in San Juan, Argentina in 2011
Am I? Yeap. I am an expat. An expat chica!
I have been an expat most of my life. Before I even knew the meaning of the word “expatriate”. And serial to be more specific. For some strange reason, it only just recently dawned on me. Labels may be restrictive but when used for good, can be liberating and empowering. So...Yay! My name is Paola … Continue reading Am I? Yeap. I am an expat. An expat chica!
Lithium, advice from an Australian ambassador and the Venezuelan situation at LADU 2017
I attended the Latin America Down Under (LADU) conference last month, held in Perth (did you know it was my first time there? Find out!).

So far it looks to me as … Continue reading It’s a miracle… I’m in Perth!
Being interviewed at “Interpelados*”, a regional TV show – and looking super serious
Can you believe I never had a chance to see this? I found it by googling myself (yeah I do that sometimes) just a few days ago. In September 2012 I was a guest at a live broadcast of a local TV Show in Salta, northern Argentina.

As I sat in my seat onboard my Delta fight bound to LAX and then YYZ -yes I am a fan of airport codes- I suddenly realised that it was my 10th time attending PDAC in Toronto. Wow!

What to expect from PDAC 2016 (other than being cold)
