Return of the Jedi
So I have returned to Buenos Aires and I find it just exactly as I left it: grand and teeming, dirty and beautiful. I returned from my fantastic voyage on Sunday evening and began the semester on Monday. I would like to have posted sooner, but I needed a few days to get things in order at the University and to rest my weary bones. But, like that prodigal fellow from that story in some book or another…here I am.
First off, school (that’s why I’m here right?). I was able to register in all the classes I wanted. I have two literature classes, one Latin American and one Argentinian. I also have a class in Latin American Cultural Studies. Last, but most definitely not least, I have a Tango class. This should be plenty to keep me busy in between whatever adventures are awaiting me next.
Speaking of adventures, I just returned from one that will be difficult to do justice to with my simple words. Nevertheless, I am going to try. It is going to take several posts over the next few days to give you a glimpse into the wonders that I have, for some reason or another, been blessed to behold. The posts that follow will be a chronicling of some of the most incredible things I have seen and done in my life. I hope that I can express at least a fraction of the pure, childlike joy and amazement that welled up in me time and again during my voyage.
