The transition from spending two weeks in a tiny Brazilian village with a half-local, to embarking a cross-country sightseeing venture with an American family is quite dramatic. A constant cycle of packing and unpacking, taking pictures, going to the airport, eating amazing things, waiting for delayed flights, seeing amazing things, going going going. Good internet connection, no internet connection, too-expensive internet connection. I love Argentina so far, and my Spanish skills are not actually as bad as I thought! Yesterday I successfully navigated a printing shop in Spanish (college applications, why else would you do that in Buenos Aires) and had a conversation with a local about the various parks and gardens nearby and what times of day would be best for us to visit them, seeing as we are Alaskan and prone to overheating. I was so excited to understand!! And now I want to take Spanish again. One thing at a time, but someday I will.
More about Argentina later, I have to get going! Here are some more photos from Brazil, the rest of which can be seen here.
By the way, while out dancing one night in Pipa, someone rode a horse into the nightclub.
