it's so weird that i am actually here, after all the planning and paperwork i've had to do the past months.
being here is amazing- the porteños are beautiful and so is their land.
i got lost today, meandering around the city for two hours because i couldn't find the office i was meant to go for a meeting. i'm so sad i didn't have my camera on me- i wish i had those lost hours documented.
homemade vegan empanadas from my host mom- so so good
this is my straight on view from my window- and i'm actually really happy about it. i've always had a childhood hope that i think was shaped by watching hey arnold of having my window directly across another window of a different building, and the person living there and i would become best friends and we would have secret gestures and would hold important conversations while leaning out our screens. while i get that the fact that i'm excited as an adult is probably creepy and weird, i'm excited nonetheless even though the chance that whoever's in there and i will become best friends and hold important conversations is small.
