Day 397: Buenos Aires, Argentina
So I hit the one year mark in style and still love Latin America as much as the first day when I arrived in Mexico but one thing has been nagging at me.
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.
