My last visit to Buenos Aires was my longest trip. I also brought a group with me instead of my usual solo status to Cow Do IV. Liz, Rob, Mickey, Antoinette and Rich came along to enjoy a fun Argentinian Adventure. Traveling with a large bunch of people never mind hosting Cow Do, can be stressful. Fortunately the fun times outweighed the stress and we had a great time.
It was very important for me to show Liz Buenos Aires. It is a home away from home and I have made wonderful friends here. It is a place I have loved for many years and have had wonderful memories. It was a great trip and we had so much fun togetherand with the group. It was also special since this was Rob's first trip out of the U.S.
I have truly found my home. My spiritual home anyway. Where I live when I am dreaming of not being at home in New York. I come here at least every year but usually more than that. And although I come what feels like often I still have so much to see and do here. I have so far stayed in Recoleta each time, twice with apartment rentals and once at a hostel. Although some would argue that we missed out on meeting people and seeing and doing everything by staying in an apartment instead of a hostel or hotel I feel we were given the experience of living in the city. We spent most of our time in our neighborhood. Were able to become familiar with the different places and options that are there for everyone in the city on a daily basis. The café owners. The bartenders. Waiters and Waitresses. Neighbors. Everywhere we went in our neighborhood it felt like we were at home. I just love “living” here.
Two of my trips have been during Cow Do. The Flyertalk.com gathering each Labor Day weekend in the States. So these events have taken me around town as well as my times with Sof and Pilar.
Everyone we met was friendly and helpful whether they spoke English or not. Our Spanish is VERY bad. But we were able to get around and even have conversation with the cabbies after the week had come to a close. Although that was three on one. It was truly a pleasure to meet you all.
A special thank you to Pilar Sofia and Iwona for making those days especially fun. From the tours to the ideas to the running across town to make a meeting.
