Two Weeks In

The view from a rooftop pool party I went to in Recoleta. The sun was setting behind me, lighting up the nearly-full moon in the distance.

Tomorrow marks two weeks in Buenos Aires. I haven't done any sightseeing yet. But I've made friends, gone out few times, and got closer to feeling like a resident instead of a tourist. Actually, most of my time in the last week has been spent working. (We launched a new site today.) 

I spent most of Saturday working at Libros del Pasaje, a beautiful cafe and bookstore in Palermo Soho. Eggs, bacon, toast, coffee, juice for $8.

This is FiFí Almacén, a nice lunch spot near my office. You get 10% off if you arrive by bicycle. 

Aside from work, I've planned a couple trips around Argentina. This Sunday, I'll be going to Patagonia: El Chaltén/Fitz Roy Mountain, the Perito Moreno Glacier, and Ushuaia, which is the southernmost city in the world, and is nicknamed the End of the World! Going to Patagonia is something I've always wanted to do, but I never thought it would happen so soon. In March, I'll be going to Iguazu Falls. Everyone I've talked to says the falls are a must-do. I found cheap flights within Argentina, so I'm happy about my decision to use Buenos Aires as a base instead of hopping from one place to another. 

In fact, I'm liking the digital nomad lifestyle so much that I've extended my trip by one month! It's likely I'll spend the extra time in Rio and use it as base for exploring more of Brazil. Maybe it's crazy to backtrack when there's an entire continent to discover, but I really do love it there.
