It’s been an incredibly long time since I’ve posted anything. I promise I’m working on something. For now, here is a photo of Susy and I last night at Drácula; the Buenos Aires based production was performing here in Mendoza this weekend and Susy invited me along!
edit//for those of you keeping tabs on my blog: we parked in a playa last night. how much did we pay? 18 pesos. lets just say i had a nice little chuckle.
I haven’t gotten settled in quite enough or found an appropriate moment to post a picture of my new home, my new room, or my host mother. However, still striving to post one foto each day, I decided to go with this one; an old couple dancing the tango on the streets of San Telmo, one of the neighborhoods we visited in Buenos Aires on Sunday. I’m posting this picture is in memory of Norberto, the late novio of my Argentine mother.
*Also, I’ve started a new page (foto del día) with a slideshow of all of these pictures, enjoy!
playa en la ciudad.
In Buenos Aires, there are no beaches, but there are certainly playas. These playas are parking lots, where the citizens of the city can, for a small cost, park their cars off of the incredibly crowded streets.
I made it here safely to Buenos Aires and from the little I have seen, I can tell this city is a WONDERFUL place; full of life, character, charm and beautiful people! The streets are crowded with busses, taxis, motos, and lots of people. EVERYWHERE. I’ve been told many times that Buenos Aires may just be one of the only cities I’ve been that truly never sleeps. Now, I can see why. After a full three course meal with the rest of our group (38 students from around the United States) we had a short siesta before we headed out for the evening; orientation and dinner at one of Buenos Aires’ most famous pizzerias; La Cuartita. Tomorrow during the day we will be exploring Buenos Aires by bus, and tomorrow night we will have free time to explore the city by foot!
