As I sit here watching American Idol really for the first time ever, I am thinking about the highlights and the lowlights of my trip to Cordoba.  I have been here for about 11 days and I can’t say that I did much.  Here is a bulleted breakdown:

Highlights:

  • La Feria de Las Pulgas (market of the fleas, literally translated for flea market haha).  This flea market was huge and winding in and out of streets. It felt like a maze of discovery. I spent lots of money here.
  • “Random” nightclub.  I went here in my first weekend.  I dug the scene and I found myself in literally random situations – for example, a guy in a wheelchair surprise attacked my face with wet slobbery makeout session.
  • Carlos Paz is a town 40 minutes outside of Cordoba city center. There is a beautiful lake there and I took a nice long walk along the water which ended with a stop at the gelato place. DELISH!
  • Peatonal in city center has tons of shopping. I spent more than an hour in one store and got some new fall digs.
  • Tango Hostel is a great little hostel run by friends of mine (kind of) and they have a really good atmosphere. I started off most of my nights here, eating a delicious homemade meal and then drinking on the patio and talking into the wee hours of the mornings.
  • I spent some real quality time with my good friend Bobby Carter.  I’ve discovered that he is a good travel buddy. those are few and far between.

Lowlights:

  • I didn’t find much to do during the day so I spent most days on my computer.
  • The heat here is unbearable. Another reason I didn’t leave the apartment until after sunset.  The humidity carried out into the night and was uncomfortable.
  • Restaurants close after 3 pm so when I’d finally emerge from the house and try to eat something, lots of places would be closed.  The ones that were open only offered a few items on their menu, usually Lomito and empanadas.
  • I got my hair cut and the dude missed a chunk of my bangs.  He was also not very nice and made the experience really uncomfortable. It was like he was too cool to cut my hair and me being there was inconveniencing his cool.  douche.

Overall I had a good time and it was really chill.  Now I’m headed back to Jujuy to show Bobby around my neck of the woods.

Still missing you!! And wishing I could buy a plane ticket. My bank account is a little sad right now, but hopefully it will pick up before you return stateside.

i’m going to spend all day trying to figure out how a man in a wheelchair can attack your face with his face without the wheelchair hitting you in the shins first.

well, you see…i was bending down to take a photo with him and he hooked his arm around my neck, bent my face towards his and SUCKED AWAY (with no reciprocal action from me). so I kinda set myself up for that one, shins safe from bruising, thankfully.
