Last night it finally, finally, finally started raining. Well, I suppose the rain itself didn't really matter much for the temperature as the gigantic thunderstorm that went with it. We all stood and watched the sky in our courtyard get lit up by the lightning as (what seemed) a continuos roll of thunder swept through the air. I love lightningstorms, and this was amazing. I just wish we had been higher up so as to be able to get a better look
This past week we have had a great time exploring buenos aires' nightlife. On Wednesday we went to a club where a group of drummers were performing. There were about 15 of them, all in different rhythmic instruments and they would take turns directing. I've never before dansed to only drums - I was amazed at how "musical" of an experiance it was, and over the fact that I didn't tire of it. Dancing to that music in the sweaty midst of all the other people in the club, I almost felt like I was a part if the huge, grungy dance-scene in matrix reloaded where thousands of people are dancing in a giant cave and the atmosphere is electric. Did I say it was awesome?
Thursday night brought a quite different experience with it. After having some of the best sushi of my life (talk about unexpected!) we went to a club where the theme of the night was a burlesque/transvestite/drag-show. As the night wore on it got more and mor kinky and out if control and at about 4 am (still early on argentine-time) we felt like we had had enough and went home. We were also a bit tired from having been out until 4.30 am the night before
Today is Saturday, there is a market in an old part if town called Recolleta, and we just finished having my favorite kind of breakfast with coffee, lots if fresh fruit and warm medialunas (croissants).
I love it here!
