Anyways the Copa Libertador is a tournament which comprises of local teams from South American countries which began in February and ended on Wednesday June 20th with a Boca victory against Brazil (6-0 after two matches). Needless to say this city went NUTS!!! Dan dragged me to the Obelisco (the center of the city) to watch the fans celebrate
Many of our students the following day were smiling ear to ear (just like when the Sox won the World Series) and then there were students who didn't even want to talk about it (like the Cub fans were when we (the Sox) won the World Series)!!!! Now on a side note the fact that Dan and I are both fans for Boca is a miracle... we do not agree on ANY other sport team....
We have also taken many "weekend" walks around the city. Here in Argentine the night life begins at 2 AM and goes till the wee hours of the morning... so Dan and I have become accustomed to rolling in around 7 or 8 AM and we sleep the day away and we're lucky if we can catch a little sunlight here and there
The big news for Daniel is after 4 months he finally got a hair cut!!! We have some great before and after shots!! He also claims that living with me is causing him to go bald; it's just his excuse.... I on the other hand am waiting till I am home for 24 hours in August to go get my hair cut, Dionne you're going to kill me when you see my hair....
Other than that we are just teaching and hanging out in Buenos Aires. Meeting new people, making new friends; it's amazing after 5 months how much our network of friends have grown and blossom. Sometimes I walk away from a class and wonder who learned more, my student or I
So now we are just preparing ourselves for the arrival of mis padres (my parents) on Saturday!! Please keep my parents in your thoughts and prayers during their travels to and from Buenos Aires. Dan and I have started to do some "grocery" shopping for them, plan an itinerary, as well as cleaning our house from top to bottom. My parents have rented an apartment for 10 days which is 3 blocks from our house and much cheaper than staying in a hotel for 10 days!!! Their apartment is a 2 bedroom so I'll be able to spend the nights there with them and visit with them just long enough so that they're annoyed with me once again... ;)
Well that's all that's about new down here. We will post again to detail the adventures of my parent's trip and have some new pictures. Although you may not be able to see us in the pictures because it is SO cold here in Buenos Aires and we will be bundled from head to toe. It is winter officially here now and it wouldn't be so bad if it weren't 50 degrees with 90% humidity
We hope everyone is doing well and enjoying your summer and HOT weather. We are jealous of the sun you are receiving!!! (we know, the tables are turned now... haha) Enjoy your summer, we look forward to hearing how you are doing and possibly seeing you in August while we're home for 24 hours!!!
We love and miss you all!! Thank you for your continued support and prayers!
Sarah and Dan :)
