Halfway!

Officially reached the halfway point of my stay in Buenos Aires! Its fitting that studio midterms are today. After school today we all get a much needed break to catch up on everything that isnt studio. The past week could be characterized by coffee and takeout and lots of errands to get the weekend’s travel plans in order. The next few days will be laundry and blogging and getting ready for the 16+ hour bus ride to Puerto Iguazu. I’m really excited for a much needed escape from the busy city. One thing I’ve learned from being here is that I probably shouldn’t start looking for jobs in New York. Big city life is nice right now, but I couldn’t live like this in the long term. I like my single family home and my car and my farmers market way too much!

I miss my car

No pictures right now, because I’m going to take this opportunity to reflect on the things that aren’t totally fabulous about this fine city. This week we had a lot of places to be. I already mentioned that we had a project site that was a a 40 minute train ride from the city, in addition to that we had a meeting at a gallery in Recoleta, an event near Congresso, a lecture in Palermo, and a payment due at a travel agency near the obelisk. All of these events happened between Thursday afternoon and Friday afternoon. Now none of these places are incredibly far from each other, but when accessed by foot and public transit they seem to be. I think I reached some sort of quota on jam packed sardine style subte rides. And when I say jam packed I really mean it. Imagine the most crowded Phoenix light rail ride on a First Friday when there is also a Suns game and some sort of convention downtown… Then multiply by about 4. That is a jam packed subte ride. Additionally I really wish I had brought more shoes. My indigo boots are taking quite a beating as are my converse, my toms don’t get out much as I’m often afraid it’s going to rain, overall I wish I could rotate more because my feet are in a constant state of ouch-ness.

In conclusion I am starting to miss my car… And bike… And other shoes…
