So, as it turns out that posting only like once every three months on a blog is NOT the best way to build an online following. Hmm.... Haha. When every post says "I really need to update this thing more often..." you know there's a problem.
The last few days I have been on vacation from Peace Corps. I flew to Buenos Aires, Argentina and spent three days wandering around neighborhoods like Palermo and Recoleta, and now I'm in Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world.
I'm staying at a hostel, which is a stretch for me. Typically I like to have my own sleeping space and not share a bathroom. I kind of think that other people are gross and community-anything is not my favorite, haha. BUT, I'm on this trip for 11 days and unfortunately due to my career choice to be a volunteer, the cash isn't exactly flowing into my bank account. So... $16/night? Can't afford to turn that down. And who am I to say that sharing a bathroom with other people is gross? I don't even have a bathroom in the campo. Is a shared bathroom more or less sanitary than a hole in the ground? Haha, that's actually a legitimate question.
I have a lot planned for the few days I'm down here, so I'll try to update as often as I can. I find it's more fun to blog when I'm doing something other than hoeing a field every day. Today I just kind of wandered around town finding where things are. I had an amazing bacon cheeseburger for dinner, so I'll DEFINITELY be returning to that place before I leave here. Tomorrow I'm doing a boat tour of the Beagle Channel, and the following days I'm hoping to hit the National Park that is down here, as well as the glacier. I return to Buenos Aires on Thursday and I'll be there for a couple more days. I'm on a mission to find Wendy's! Yes. I went all the way to Buenos Aires to find Wendy's. I am a true American. haha.
