My favorite picture!

Tuesday, May 31st, 2005

I realized long time ago I suck at keeping up with a diary or blog. Oh well. Why dwell? One thing I find funny about traveling for so long is that one looses contact with almost everyone. I check my email and I have none except from my mother. You would think I would have from my girlfriend, but she’s traveling with me. I expect one from friends and all, but I guess it’s a two way process. Although I’ve taken initiative sometimes, but never get a response. ­čÖü
Oh well. I am also lazy in writting emails. I’ll try more….

Changing the subject, check this out…

Salvador 028.jpg

The picture that you see above was taken in Salvador, Brasil. I was hanging out with Sara and our new bahiano friend Jose. I took this picture when we were at Jose’s favorite spot in Salvador (I forgot the name!!!). This is the best picture I’ve taken so far (for my taste). There is a lot more (Machu Picchu, Foz de Iguacu, Lago Titicaca, Uros, Condor flights, beaches in the NE of Brasil, Colombian Jungle, tigre in Buenos Aires, etc, etc, etc) but this picture I love for some weird reason. I feel it is me in that fishing boat.

trying to keep up

Monday, May 2nd, 2005

i’ll try to keep up with my journals….
Bueno, I suck at keeping journals. I am currently in Buenos Aires and I have to say I like this place. There is a culture of a lot of cafe, chilling, drinking tea, etc. there is a lot of meat, left and right. i love meat, i am a full carnivour. (spelling?) It waas veery interesting coming from Peru to Argentina. you notice the difference in race and social class. apperently here in argentina people have too much pride so they don’t show that they don’t have money. they try to dress in style even with the little money they have. we had dinner with a porte´┐Ża by birth, and she explained that the change of economy of argentina has affected the culture a little, but that porte´┐Żos don’t want to believe what has happened.
speaking of dinner, we ate vacio and un tiro de asada. we drank vino de casa, pan y eggplant, y empanadas, todo por 10 $USD!!! para 3 personas! increible!

i dont know what my last entry was but we’ve done a lot in the past month. before BA , we were in puno, a city near lago titicaca (puma gris en quechua). the lake was amazinly clean! i’ll have pictures after my trip, its annoying uploaading pics. speaking of which. my camara has a staiin on the lens…i took it to a service place for sony here in BA. i hope they can fix it! 50 dollars! i’m going to complain to sony once i get back to the states.

machu picchu has left a mark on us. we both have knee pains! after 46 km in four days with a lot of altitute and a lot of going up and down … our knees didn’t like it.

i finally got sick … meaning i got that dreaded travelers diarreha. it wasn’t too bad, 8 times in 24 hours.

alright, i’m tired. we got tix to go to the boca juniors game this wednesday fpr copa libertadores! i’m pretty excited!
