Another farewell

*Insert quote about Argentina and crying for me here*

I just spent four months in a country that I had never been to before and, honestly, didn't know much about. It's going to take me a while to process everything and to really deal with the fact that I'm not actually living there anymore.  

My last week was quite eventful. I had to move out of the apartment I'd been living in, and a friend of mine was awesome and gracious enough to take me into his house for eight days. Because of him, the last days I had in Buenos Aires were pleasant and way easier than they could have been. One day, I'll grow up and be someone like him: someone who helps people out of the goodness of their heart. I was able to go to the library and work on the various essays that I had to complete by the time I left Argentina. While they're not all 100% complete, I'm pretty sure I'll be able to get everything edited and complete by the time I touch down in Berlin

 I was able to go through the city and get some gifts for my family and whatnot. Luckily, there are street markets on Sundays like the one above in San Telmo.

On the way home, I caught Evita Peron peaking through the trees

After the lovely last afternoon, I got to meet up with a few of the lovely people I met in Buenos Aires and a couple from the GSP. My fiesta de despedida was small but good 

So now, I've left Buenos Aires. It was an experience that I'm really grateful I got to have. The opportunity to live and work and play in a new city is always welcome. I'll have to think more about what I got out of it but, all in all, I'm glad I decided to go. One of the things I'm certain to miss: the pizza!
