May 10th– In the afternoon, I went to the ISA office to watch a movie. They have started showing Spanish movies about every other week, and the one we watched was an Argentine film called Nueve Reinas (Nine Queens). The movie is about two con-artists that decide to cooperate in a scam, and in the end you find out that one of them was conning the other the whole time. I really enjoyed all the tricks they used, and it was good filling my brain with more castellano and lunfardo (Buenos Aires slang). It was fun to just sit on a couch in front of a TV with popcorn and snacks.
May 11th– Megan and I went to the Buenos Aires Market which is an all-natural/whole foods market that is held once a month in rotating neighborhoods. May’s market was in the Bosques de Palermo which is this huge park/ green space in the city. It’s pretty close to where we live, so we decided to go and I’m glad we did!
More to come 🙂
