Hello world! Aquí estoy en Buenos Aires. I've been here for a little under a week now. It's been so great thus far. I got here last Saturday morning. The days have been full of orientations, meeting friends, and walking in the cold to the few places that I know how to get to. Today was the first day that I could actually wake up without an alarm. It was nice to be able to sleep in. Now I'm just hanging out in the house today. I don't really have anything specific that I have to do today but I think some of us are meeting at the ISA office to go to the Museo de Bellas Artes (Museum of Fine Arts). That should be fun, plus it'll give me something to do! So I'm pretty excited about that. Being with some other people around lunchtime maybe I'll actually eat something this time. Yesterday I didn't eat anything for lunch and I got pretty hungry so I don't plan on doing that (on purpose) anytime soon.
It's been quite freezing here. Actually today my host mom told me that it's supposed to be below freezing. The wind reminds me of being in Boone in the Winter. That's what really makes it so cold. Oh, and the fact that I didn't really bring a scarf, hat, or thick jacket could also be a contributing factor! ;) Other than the freezing cold life has been pretty stellar here. It'll be nice when I know my way around a little better. Right now the only places that I really know how to get to from my house are the ISA office, UB (where I'll be attending university), my friend José's house, and a few small cafés and stuff like that. I bought a cell phone the other day but don't have many (if any) minutes so I'm sort of limited as to where I can go. But you know what? I'm just kind of going with the flow while I'm here. If plans come up (and it's not freeezing cold) I'll most likely go with them.
Life is good. Hope yours is too! If there's something you want to here about my life as a Porteño (inhabitant of Buenos Aires), please just let me know. Have a great day! :)
