I really can't promise to keep up this year since we still have some traveling ahead of us. Later today we head to Sta. Rosa! Woot! And we also have a week-long trip coming up in December because dear friends from the U.S. gave us a week at a time share so we'll be going to an RCI resort in Mina Clavero. Double Woot!
But I do promise to do the best I can and post Project 365 photos when possible.
Okay, these first two photos are from November 6th, which was supposed to be our last Sunday in the U.S. The ladies in my home church gave me a prayer shawl...
Now fast forward to last Sunday, November 20th. After church we wrangled a strong young man with a truck to help us transport the suitcases we were leaving (to come later with different groups) to another location. They'll be stored until the groups start coming -- hopefully next April!
No photos (with the camera) until we'd arrived in Argentina. [Note to self: Must figure out how to download photos from phone.] Our second day back we managed a walk around the neighborhood where we're staying. There's a nice little park nearby and an owl started fussing at us.
I'm constantly learning, and while waiting for a taxi yesterday I saw this sign with a phrase that made no sense to me:
"...no pague derecho de piso"Huh?! My literal word-for-word translation made me think "Don't pay for the right of the floor" (or something like that; remember my Spanish is rusty!). Like I said, it made no sense to me. So I asked Ivan. Well, to begin with "derecho de piso" refers to dues paid to join a club. And just as we say in the U.S. that someone has to "pay their dues" and we're not talking about a literal sum of money, in this case it's saying that when you invest in Carlos Paz, you don't have to "pay your dues", because you're immediately part of the "club". That's the gist of it anyway.
Yesterday evening I snapped this shot of downtown Cordoba:
A funny side to this story: we bought our first car from Eduardo too! He sold us the Fiat Uno back in 2008, and we've kept in touch via e-mail and facebook ever since. When he learned we needed to buy another car, this time one with power steering, he wrote and said his sister was ready to sell a car that had everything on our "wish list". A flurry of messages back and forth culminated in us buying the car yesterday! More on that later -- it's quite the experience buying a car in Argentina :)
Now, it's time for me to start packing and getting organized myself, for a trip to Sta. Rosa! Hasta luego, mis amigos!
