Standing on the platform, I try to ignore the thoughts about what I look like and focus on something else. Anything else. At least I know that the reality is, I don’t know these people and they don’t care about me.

If you skip too many time zones, it can throw off your entire circadian rhythm and mess with your meal schedule. But, if you want to get moving and see what you came to see, you need to power through and get some breakfast in your belly.

Tourists and newcomers often wonder, “Should I take taxis everywhere in Buenos Aires?” If I had a dollar for every time I heard that, well, depending on the exchange rate that day…I’d have more than that in pesos. Finding your bearings in a big city is rarely easy. It’s more challenging when you don’t know the language, but even if you do speak Spanish, you’ll find that Buenos Aires has a special dialect and accent.

Where have I been since 2015?  I’ll update you all soon, but this video will give you a hint as to why I’ve been more or less MIA on the interwebs. We adopted a PUPPY! I’ll post a separate article just about puppy adoption in Buenos Aires and what the process was like for us.…

The air. The air is always different. Buenos Aires air is heavy. It’s a city without a filter. Loud noises. Chaotic sidewalks. And a brilliantly blue sky.

September 8, 2014 Photo by Jon Tyson on Unsplash I was on my usual grind yesterday. You know the drill: opening up a blank word doc to write an article on the right side of the screen and on the left opening Chrome with the intention of doing research on said article. Despite my good…

I have gone through phases where I am into sports, but right now it just isn’t my thing. During the World Cup I wasn’t that invested in the games. If the US was playing at the same time as another game, I’d ask my boyfriend, Alejandro, to switch to the US game. Then I’d end…
