Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
Wednesday, July 26th I left California's 108Â° weather and left for Buenos Aires, arriving yesterday morning. After a very long taxi ride from the airport (which was made longer seeing as the driver had no idea where the street was and would jump out every couple of blocks to ask where Sucre was), I arrived at my apartment, and was greeted by the doorman, seeing as Mabel and her daughter Augustina (who I am living with) were both working. Rather than exploring, I slept all day. My program doesn't officially begin until Sunday, so today I was free to wander about and try to get to know my way around. I spent the morning drinking tea on my balcony with the company of Pollita (my canary), and overlooking the shops below. My apartment is only 3 blocks from the main street of Belgrano (the suburb of Buenos Aires where I am living), and is 10 blocks from the University. I have gotten to know the main street fairly well now, since I walked up and down it about 3 times trying to find the office for my program, before returning home to look for the exact adress (it was hidden between 2 other shops, on the second floor, and with no sign). I have met a couple girls from the semester program, but the others from my program arrive tomorrow. At this office I have free internet though, so I will try and keep you all updated as much as possible. Now, I put on my jacket, scarf, mittens, and many other layers, and return to my spanish newspapers and magazines. Hasta luego.
