…I may not ever come back from this country. I know this is my second blog post in one day, but I couldn’t resist. I was firmly told, before I came, to not fall in love and get married while I was abroad. Sadly, I must say that I’ve already done one of those things.
Pro: I didn’t get married.
Con: I fell in love. With the city.
Today, after spending a while in the hotel freshening up, a few of us went out to lunch. We found this cute empanada shop on a street and sat inside, enjoying the most delicious and tasty empanadas I’ve ever had. I had 1 chicken and 2 beef empanadas (since it is Argentina, I’ve accepted that I’ve got to take advantage of the beef here!). After being way too full with delicious food, we proceeded to find a cute little corner café (although I guess it wasn’t really little…) and sit down for a nice cup of coffee with medialunas, which are like a mix between crescents and croissants, with glaze brushed on the top and baked to a perfect crispy golden brown. Con café? ¡Buenísimo! After that, we walked around a bit more, went back to the hotel, walked around some more to walk off those medialunas…We then came upon some bookstores – if you know me at all, you know I’m a total bookworm and read nonfiction for pleasure during the summer. Needless to say, we spent a large chunk of time in the bookstore before coming back to the hotel to relax before dinner!
Sorry not sorry, I may have finally found where I want to be for a long, long time. Given that I’ve spent less than 12 hours in this city, and I’m already head over heels in love…we’re in for some trouble if I still have another 5 amazing months here 🙂
You know, mom and dad, getting married might just be the best excuse for me to move here…just kidding. Maybe.
