After we unpacked and settled in without killing each other we ventured out into the city. We live in Palermo (like Lincoln Park of Chicago). We went and got some food (Dan had an unbelievably good cappuccino) and went grocery shopping. After we checked out we found out that we can have our food delivered to our apartment for free. Thatīs just so cool to me. Donīt have to walk the 4 blocks home carrying all the heavy stuff! We live a block away from the park. Iīve never seen so many cats in my life in one place. In the rest of Latin America there were dogs everywhere roaming around... here its CATS. Wait till you see the pictures!!!!
The weather is HOT and HUMID. We went home and showered and then went out to dinner. At night the weather is very nice here and we were able to sit outside!! The sun is up here until 9 PM so we are totally lost with time and it doesnīt help that we donīt get up and moving till 2 in the afternoon. (we are 3 hours ahead of Chicago). We went to Plaza Güemo after dinner. There were kids playing soccer, families enjoying the night, saw the Basilica.
We slept till about 2 PM and got up showered and then went to Recolata where our school is located.
I/we found a very good ice cream parlor right by the Louis Vúitton (the important thing for Dan). I wouldnīt let him go into the Louis store. (side comment the radio is playing Ace of Base right now... and they are so into the 80s & 90s era of music) Recolata reminds us of Paris. We went to the cemetery where Evita is buried. The mausoleums in this cemetery were breathe taking... really indescribable so we took pictures.
Overall we are enjoying the country. There is so much to see and learn.
Dan keeps reading the Foders book for Argentina and looking at maps; he keeps saying oh we need to go here and here and oh Sarah this place sounds cool. Itīs rather entertaining.
This morning we were suppose to get Internet installed in the apartment and have a "perfect" day but the CD drive didnīt work on the computer while the Internet man was there. Of course after he leaves Dan fixes that issue then we think he fried the battery charger... stupid 220 voltage. Along with the fact that we couldnīt get anything to work or figure out how to call people... it was a learning experience to say the least. Some how we are still alive and pleasant with each other and now we found an Internet cafe and the day if fine. Today itīs rainy so weīre going to stay indoors (museums and cathedrals and grocery shopping and fun stuff like that)
Over all i love it here and we are having a blast... !
We hope everyone is doing well and we love you all. Thank you for your support and prayers! We forgot our address and phone number at home so next time we post we will have that info
Sarah and Dan :)
