Big Small Journey Off on the adventure of my lifetime: 5 glorious months of sun and snow in South America, then the UK for further fun and frolicking.

Buenos Aires (Good Airs)

ARGENTINA | Thursday, 6 March 2008 | Views [911]

South Americans sure do have a funny way of naming their cities and streets: Good Airs, River of January (Rio de Janeiro), Beautiful (Bonito), Big Far (Campo Grande), etc.

I've been a bit lazy with my posting (apologies), and that's because there hasn't been much happening! And that's a good thing. Let me tell you about "El Dia Tipico en la Viva de Lucy" (the typical day in the life of Lucy): I wake up about 9, bludge till about 11, having brunch round about then, next I would study Spanish for a while, or go out and do some shopping, come back for my Spanish lesson, and then study some more. Or if I could be arsed, do more Spanish study. I would cook at home, shopping at the local Carrefour, cooking normal Aussie meals, nothing special. Often I would have a siesta also. Life is great!

My sole purpose at the moment is to absorb as much Spanish as I can. I have 2 hours of private tuition everyday, with Sofia, she's amazing. I would study as much as my brain can handle, and when I'm tired I rest. Haven't really ventured out to do anything touristy yet. Also fairly boring and not going out at night (loosing precious study time!). Blame it on Vamsi, for having too comfortable an apartment.

Tonight though, we're heading to this reggae/dub/mash-up/dancehall club called Zizek in Palermo Viejo. It's 1am, Wednesday, and that's when normal Argentines head out for night fun. I made awesome sangria tonight also.

Cheeres and beers!
