Day 29. Buenos Aires Fashion Week 2010 #BAFWeek

Day 29. Next to the Iguazu Falls, today we may have seen the most beautiful thing Argentina has to offer. To start off with, we knew today would be a good day because the weather was perfect—sun shining, a slight breeze and no clouds. It was perfect for kicking the ball around at the park, […]

Day 28. I Wish South America had EasyJet

Day 28. These past few days have been quite chill and somewhat structured. Wake up, write, read, work, workout, do some new or previous activity, eat long dinner, socialize, go to bed. Knowing soon that we’ll be traveling again, I’m trying to get as much done as possible with the work part too. As mentioned, […]

Day 27. Chinatown y Mexican Food

Day 27. After putting in about five solid hours of work followed by working out, we left for Chinatown. The day was finally sunny and warm so we were all about taking advantage of that. We got on the Green Line and headed the opposite direction we normally do (normally we’d be heading downtown). We […]

Day 26. No More Rain Please

Day 26. The overcast morning sky turned into rain by noon o’clock. The rain started to drop heavy and fast. We thought for sure our street/barrio would be flooded again. It rained for a couple hours but fortunately, did not rain enough to cause flooding that we we’ve seen before. Due to the rain, our […]

Day 25. A First For Everything

Day 25. We arrived back to a drizzling Buenos Aires at 10am today. The city was overcast with many puddles everywhere. Apparently, when we were away in Iguazu, Buenos Aires had experienced another down pour and had gotten flooded again even worse than before. While we were at our hostel a couple days ago, we […]

Day 22. Procrastination is Bad, etc.

Day 22. For whatever reason, we generally feel that whenever and wherever we want to go is as simple as booking tickets the day of travel. For instance over the past week, we had been scoping out a trip to Iguazu Falls (Google map: Iguazu Falls) and there were about 6 different buses scheduled to […]

Day 21. The Best Part Of Waking Up, Is Tallon’s Coffee In Your Cup.

Day 21. Today we were blessed with another cup of Tallon’s homemade coffee. He’s developing the science of brewing coffee into his own art. Nice and strong, the coffee gets us going. Ran some sprints today and it felt great. Jokingly we’ve been talking about doing an America vs Argentina fútbol match with our friends. […]

Day 20. There’s No Wildlife in BsAs

Day 20. Either I’m getting over the jet lag (20 days later) or I’m beginning to realize the importance of waking up earlier, but the past couple days I’ve been getting up around 9am—crazy I know. With a couple travel plans formulating, I know soon I’ll be out of WiFi commission so I’m trying to […]

Day 19. Cliché Alert: When it Rains, it Pours

Day 19. Day started out pretty mediocre. Worked, worked-out, and traveled our way to the meeting. However, about that time, things got a bit out of control. So we met up with some friends before the meeting to get a coffee and something to eat. There was about 9 of us at the table talking […]

Day 18. Plan BA

Day 18. Finally got to sleep in a bit—it was well needed. We had the meeting at 1pm today so that was our first obligation. We hopped in a taxi and arrived to the front door of the hall for 18 pesos. Definitely not the best deal when the metro is 1.10 pesos per person […]
