There's nothing quite like a Friday-flavored Thursday

Hey world!  I know it's been a long time since I wrote you.  Sorry about that.  I guess I thought it would be easier to come here and write when I got to Argentina.  It's actually a little more difficult because A) I'm doing so much here and 2) It's hard to come across a good internet connection.  But Right now I'm in my roommate's room and he's got some pretty good internet most of the time.  So's your life?  I'm doing great here in Argentina.  Today was a Friday-flavored Thursday, as are all Thursdays this semester because I have no classes on Fridays.

It was a really great day!  I had my Digital Graphics class this morning and that was pretty fun.  I learned how to mess around with light and color on Photoshop and I'm supposed to do something like that with at least two pictures by next week.  I also met a couple Porteños who were really nice.  Today, I also had Español Profundizado B (which is my Spanish class) and my professor was especially helpful.  I was literally the ONLY one in the class and it was great!  It was like having a personal tutor.  I feel like I got a lot out of the class.

Another great thing about today was that some of us ISA students actually planned a trip and are leaving tomorrow.  We're going to Rosario, Argentina, which is where Ernesto "Che" Guevara (and my host dad) were born!  We're leaving tomorrow at 6 in the afternoon (yeah it's still the afternoon to the Argentines).  But I'm really excited because we have a long weekend and we actually have a game plan! :)

I also ate at a Mexican restaurant today and that was really good!  Just thought I'd mention that.

But yeah that's the lowdown on today and the near future.  I also am missing a certain someone, not to mention my family.  (Skype definitely minimizes distances!)

Any special requests?  I can't guarantee anything or that it will be soon but comments are always fun to receive. :)


P.S. This picture is one of 165 that I took yesterday at the Cemetery in Recoleta for my Photography class.
