Happy friday readers! Next friday (technically early saturday morning) I am leaving Mexico which is a sentence I can’t believe I just typed. We’re going to have to process that somewhere else. But for now, some reads. One of my favorite foodbloggers, the Amateur Gourmet (and the first food blog I followed back in 2008 or 9) went to Germany as part of a Eurotrip … Continue reading Reading the internet, week 6
Apologies for the lack of posts this week but I was pretty busy (yay!). Tuesday was a fairly ordinary day at work and then a weird aerobics classed called Body Attack that was not that revolutionary. I still need to try the tumbling one. It was, like most latin american 1 hour commitments, roughly 42 minutes. That night, we had a house dinner which was … Continue reading Week Two: When things start to get busy
Happy New Year!! 2013 was a year of many adventures, most of them way out of my comfort zone and this trip to Patagonia was no exception. At 7 am on the monday after thanksgiving, I boarded a flight to El Calafate with Nora, Odile, and Olivia. Here’s a map of the region for reference. We arrived in Calafate and I felt like I was … Continue reading Final Trips part 2: Patagonia
I’m leaving for the airport in a little over an hour, provided all of my suitcases close. I really can’t analyze this semester at all in this moment but just wanted to write something to say thank you to everyone who made this possible. Buenos Aires is not an easy place to live but that’s what I loved about it. So much of my US … Continue reading Chao Gracias
But I wanted to share some photos from this week before I head off for a series of trips, first to Uruguay and then to Patagonia! I’ll be in Buenos Aires for about 8 hours between the two so I’m just thinking of that as time for a shower and a repack. Happy Hanukkah and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! It’s hard to be away from … Continue reading I should be packing
This is my last full week in Buenos Aires and this weekend is my last weekend here. Next thursday, I leave for a thanksgiving trip with the entire program to Uruguay where we will visit Colonia, a former Portuguese colony and Punta del Este, a beach town. We get home around 11 on the 1st of December and I have a 7 am flight to … Continue reading How did this happen so fast?
Hey twitfam, This week is insanely busy but I just wanted to share some recent observations about schools here, based on the 6th grade class that I’m volunteering with and my time at UBA and Ditella. Today, for the second consecutive week, I forgot my DiTella Student id. This is only the third week I’ve had a DiTella student Id as they just got a … Continue reading On Schools and Security
Hey twitfam, The last few days have been crazy with a capital C but so much fun. I also have been planning to write this post for days but am suddenly ridiculously busy so here it is. Last thursday, my afternoon class at UBA was canceled because the facultad (department/campus) was taken (tomado) by the students because they were unhappy with the selection of the … Continue reading Clubs and Cordoba and Cuestablanca (etc.)
Hey twitfam, It’s officially spring in Buenos Aires and this city does not have air conditioning. Not on the buses, not at the gym, not in most buildings, not in my apartment. It’s also really not an environment where people wear shorts and even a skirt without tights attracts more unwanted attention than usual. So we are soldiering on, sweating a lot… These past few … Continue reading Grandparents in BA! (and more)
