Here's the Plan...

>> Tuesday, September 28, 2010

Well, obviously I have gotten behind on posting, and it is hard to know whether to backtrack or just continue moving forward. Since I left off at our trip to Buenos Aires, I think it will be best for me to do a quick burst of several posts concerning Argentina and our trip, and then continue.
So be prepared for some serious shoving of Argentina into a nutshell!

In the meantime, here's an update:

1) I had a delicious asado at Alvaro and Maria del Carmen's house with their daughter, her boyfriend, and Ronnie.
We drove around Las Piedras, and even saw where Ronnie and Alvaro attended highschool (Liceo Javier Viana, I think was the name). A random assortment of songs played on the radio, including, "Love Today" by Mika, "I Try" by Macy Gray, and "She's a Lady" by Tom Jones. This made me laugh. We also saw Ag students and transvestites on the bus, both dressed accordingly. :)

2) Saturday began the "Días del Patrimonio," so there was a bustle of people, shops, museums, and shows through the city. It was also Michelle's birthday, so we took her to lunch at La Pasiva, and enjoyed the festivities in la Ciudad Vieja. We have found a cozy little place nearby to play pool, and we spent the evening there... soundtrack: U2. More unpredictable music in my life!

3) Sunday began with the usual format of church, and then lunch with Ronnie and Abuela. Afterwards, Ronnie, Kendyl and I went to Géant, a French shopping complex where he needed to get his Uruguayan ID renewed. Afterwards, we walked down the beach of Carrasco for a few hours, talking and picking up shells. This culminated in the three of us eating the best chivito in the world (from Marcos) in la Plaza Virgilio/la Plaza de la Armada that overlooks the city skyline and the salty sea. (The Plaza features a sculpture by Eduardo Diaz Yepes.) God has been good to me in all kinds of ways this week!

Today was a series of unfortunate events... you know, those days that are so ridiculous, you can't help but laugh!

Life is colorful, I want to share it.
