Day 397: Buenos Aires, Argentina
I’m tired of packing up my backpack. I’m tired of researching buses to the next city. I’m tired of hostels.
I have arrived in Buenos Aires with 5 weeks before returning to Canada for the Summer and I still have so much to see.
I’m ready for familiarity.
Rather than push through the last five weeks with a marathon of traveling through the rest of Argentina I have decided to settle down.
I’ve moved into an apartment with Stephanie from The Travel Chica. I met her two weeks ago and liked her immediately. She also traveled through Central America and Ecuador and wanted to settle down for a bit. She is currently going through a nightmare situation with an insane landlady and needed to get out fast.
Normal is neat-o!
It is so thrilling to hang clothes in a closet, not worrying about dormmates snoring, not needing to strategize when is the best time to have a shower or breakfast.
We have a living room. We can actually have people over! No longer being in a dorm means that I can invite people over for a drink and to hang out. What a novelty.
Our tiny kitchen! I cannot wait to go grocery shopping and cook for the next month. Eating steak and pasta is great but not totally healthy. I will be stocking up on veggies!
Seems strange that instead of climbing UNESCO sites and eating crazy food I’m now excited about having a “normal” life but I think this is going to be a really great month.
I am excited to get to know Buenos Aires as a resident and perhaps make it my future home.
