Tango en Argentinos


I'm writing this after an amazing dinner and a strawberry daiquiri so.. Forgive me any accidental typos :) I guess when I left off we had just been in a car accident (don't get your hopes up, Jenny, I feel like ambulance-rides are more of a once-in-a-lifetime than once-in-a-continent experiance, so hopefully it won't happen again). We continued our taxi-journey to the place where Asia's friend Patrick lives an we would be able to rent a room. The landlord (Jorje) was home, showed us around and turned out to be a really nice guy :)
We spent that first day walking around BA, drinking fresh-made juice (they actually make it after you order it..!) and sweating (it was EXTREMELY hot). Also, I'm a bit embarrassed to say, I fell asleep at 20:00. However, now I'm a bit proud of the fact. Asia slept for 15 hours straight, though, so I had to see myself "defeated" (which is totally fine).

Anyway, the next day was spent walking around BA, eating great food, finding a lake and a park, trying to get to the Atlantic coast and being rudely interrupted by a large highway. Hrmph.

In the evening we went tango-dancing!! I (who loves to dance) was thrilled to dance a lot and get helpful tips on how to perform. However, I've since learned that most of my suitors were not attracted by my actual dancing skills. Well. That swells my confidence (not). So, I guess I still can't dance the tango. Oh, well (Argentina and Finland = not the majority of the planet). So I'm no good at tango (but I might learn).

Sleeping late the next day, we RAN around the lake we had seen (Asia, of course, ran further) and then met Patrick at a park, got a pizza which we ate at the park (it was a great pick-nick). I tried walking on a slack-line, it was FUN! and I figure I'll only need a couple of hours of practice every day for a week and then I'll be able to stand on it! Cool!!1!!!11! ^^

So. Here we are the day after (or night/morning). We've been to a wonderful restaurant, had great meals and drinks, and then come home to keep talking and having a great time.

I'm also happy to announce that I neither have warts on my toes or lice in my armpits. (Yes, I have a signature confirming the fact).
(Honestly, I'm a bit confused as to why, when they're at it, they didn't check for lice in more private parts. Maybe they assumed everyone is shaved).
This detailed procedure (I have spared you the details) was all part of gaining entry to a swimming/pool area in town) where we have spent a large part of the day not (!) getting sunburned (hooray for sunscreen and shade!).
I still love fresh smoothies/juice and coffee.

I also L.O.V.E. Buenos Aires. I feel solarge_90_IMG_0053.jpg180_IMG_0046.jpg90_image.jpg90_IMG_0053.jpg90_155898DB2219AC681712A006913C4861.jpg180_156DEFC32219AC6817C0B6FF7AA147D9.jpg content. Happy. At home.

Linedancing...really? Ok how many bruises? Come on. :-)

Haha.. No bruises! As it turns out, I'm very efficient when it comes to losing-balance-jumping-off-and-landing-on-my-feet ;) especially the losing balance part.. ;)
