acrobats playing at dusk, main park in el bolson

it seems like the whole country has decided to visit the tiny little town of El Bolsón. true, there´re a few foreigners (yes, i´m still accosting every francophone in a frantic attempt to practise my french before i lose it forever. - hm, nice alliteration there..), but the majority here are argentines, and DAMN, there´s quite a bit of eye-candy around. i´m considering just staying here for the rest of my trip - instead of going to each town and making new friends, let´s just sit back and let the best of each city make its way to me. so far i´ve had invitations to visit people in rosario, santa fe, perito moreno... at this rate, i´ll never have to pay for accomodation again!

aimless chatter today, since i had an absolutely glorious day, chatting to people, eating yummy fair food, and generally being happy.

sunday is chinese new year, and today is australia day - 2 very special dates for me so i thought i´d send my warmest wishes to you all online. the former is important because, well, the traditional celebratory dishes are great (remember to think of me SF when you´re lou-ing..), and the latter is great because i almost always spend it lolling around in the melbourne heat, reading a book, lazing in cafes, and enjoying doing nothing. which is exactly what i did today, and i loved it.

i´ve scored myself <the exorcist> in english, and the writing in it is absolutely shocking. a pain in the bum since i´m finding certain parts interesting, and i have to force myself to wade through the B.S. just to get the good bits. (anyone read a book by dan brown, something about a da vinci code?) here´s a couple of examples so you can share my pain:
´Something... something was horribly wrong. like light from a room leaking under the door, a glow of dread seeped into the darkened hall of her mind.´

or:
´..he hesitated, then entered almost flinching backward at the pungent stench of moldering excrement that hit him in the face like a palpable blast.´

speaking of pain: sincerest thanks to all those who wrote get-well-emails - very much appreciated, and definitely helped lift me from the abyss of misery that i was in. (the worst thing about bad writing is that it´s contagious..)
