For this work downtime I decided to rent a little room in a shared home and work for 3 weeks in the local neighborhood of Almagro in Beunos Aires Argentina. Here are some snippets from the past couple of weeks.
My little home in Almagro proved to be a super decision as it’s filled with a few other travelers who are also solo like me. Tip – if you are scared to travel alone – then surround yourself by people in your same situation – you’ll make friends fast!
I met two wonderful women from Germany here who are my age and full of energy so they are keeping me busy in the evenings as we all go out and explore the nightlife together in Buenos Aires. Ute is a tango dress designer so I’ve been accompanying her to Milongas late at night to be her photographer. It has provided me some wonderful photographic opportunities as well as a way to learn more about the heartbeat of the Argentinian culture – tango. But most of all I appreciate my new girlfriends for their fabulous wine drinking ability and conversations we have into the wee hours of the night.
