Haven't been too regular with the blogs cause we've been trying to explore the city and be good students...not so sure about the good part, but we have been trying to study! So far, I'm really really loving Buenos Aires, it's quickly become one of my favourite cities in the world. There's a vibrancy about it that is great and thoroughly enjoyable. Maybe it's cause we're meeting/have met amazing people and been having a great time, maybe it's because it really is a beautiful city that has so much to offer. There is something for everyone here. There's so many cute and quaint cafes, cool bars, thumping clubs, delicious restaurants, interesting museums, great architecture to be seen everywhere! We take the subway all the time and everyday is like a mini adventure. There's something wonderful about being part of the throng of Portenos (locals) that makes us feel like we're part of the city. Sometimes, musicians play beautiful music, which makes it even more fun. Other times, you're reminded that you're in a big city when everyone has there backpacks in front of them, women are clutching their purses and there are blind people selling gum in the trains. Oh, and am not a big fan of the packed sardine feeling I get when it's rush hour. Aside from that, every corner you turn is like a picture waiting to be taken. In fact, the pictures I'm adding are the sites that I see walking to school and the jogging route that I have. It's amazingly gorgeous.
Staying put for a little while, means that we get to experience the city like we're actually living here. We've had our new friends come over for a dinner we all cooked, we've gone to an Argentinian guy's birthday party, gone to see a movie in the theatre, eaten Chinese at China(town/street)...you know, things we'd actually do back home. However, when they say that BA is nocturnal - they were NOT kidding! Everything starts so late here I don't even understand how people do it. It's not just the going out, but they have dinner here at like 10pm! I mean I'm on vacation and I'm exhausted. That said, no complaints whatsoever! Life's good and BA helps make it better everyday!
