Happy Weekend!

Friday, April 30th, 2010

Guess what! I’m going to get a roommate! She’s coming May 21st for one month. She’s from New Jersey but goes to Virginia Tech. Maria asked me if I liked the idea of having someone new. Yes, I do. But after 3 months of being the only child I am going to have to share the attention!

I miss doing my own laundry. Yes, really! They don’t do a good job. So I hand wash all my nice clothes. And I now hand wash the clothes I got here too because they are not of good quality and they will be ruined.

I also miss driving SO MUCH. When we came back from the Lujan Zoo we had to sit on the side of the highway for 45 minutes waiting for the bus. As a car that looked exactly like mine drove past…

Hmm…what else can I add? We got a new oven but it’s just been sitting in the middle of our tiny kitchen for 2 days. And my flight to come back to the U.S. was cancelled, so it looks like I’m never coming home!

Today was Mary Wash’s last day of finals! Happy summer?! Does that make me a senior?

My Computer Is Back!

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

Hola a todos! It’s been awhile, huh? I wrote an entry on my iPod the other day but was unfortunately not properly saved. Ah well it would have been outdated by now anyway.

So I’m finally back on my computer after almost 5 weeks! Sure is nice. The tecnico, Ernesto, and I are now best friends. He ended up coming to my apartment to fix my computer 3 times. Maria and I had a whole discussion about how we thought he would definitely speak English, but he didn’t. Anyway, I love (and greatly miss) excellent customer service so much I extended my warranty with Dell for two more years.

Back to Buenos Aires- I spent the weekend spending my food money shopping in the city (whoops). Friday I stayed closed to home, Saturday spent the afternoon in Palermo, Sunday in San Telmo (of course). It just starting hailing and it’s VERY loud. Speaking of the weather, it’s starting to get a little cold here, which means all of the porteños wear warm jackets, boots and scarves while I’m fine in jeans and a t-shirt.

Since I have been so delayed in updating my trips, I think I will write one separate entry for each Iguazu Falls, Punta del Este and Mendoza within the next couple of days. Maybe even tonight!! But don’t get your hopes up, I have to “study” for my two midterms Wednesday…

Spring In Virginia

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

I’m on my iPod. It’s 68 degrees in both Vienna and Buenos Aires. I’m upset that I’m skipping my favorite season this year!
