We very happily have spent some time observing the dog walkers here in Argentina. Dog walkers here usually have veterinarian training and groom and train their charges. It is amazing to see a muscular man walking twelve dogs down the street without any tangles in the leash or trouble at all. I have trouble just walking Pepino and Pepper. An unfortunate side to this is that you spend most of your time watching out for dog poo and not looking up at the architecture. there are a lot of dogs and a lot of poo in buenos aires. Cordoba seems to be better in that regard. Last night Carson and I ate at a little restaurant and a dog trotted in with typical argentine confidence and trotted back out with a whole piece of what looked like about a foot of ribs. pretty cute.
Here in Argentina everyone is very thin and pretty fashionable. thus with my fifty pounds i have on them, my flowered mumu to hide it all, my white tennis shoes and camera around my neck, i think i am doing a damn good job of fitting in.
Cordoba is a very pretty city with lots of college students. we met a swiss girl who is great and a young new yorker who was very surprised that i could tell he was from new york by his accent. why this would be a surprise i donīt know. those new yorkers.
my ipod is on the fritz (ps-donīt drop them from higher than two feet) again and we are about to board a bus to san luis tomorrow. there is an amazing park nearby apparently and so we can finally do some hiking.
sarah, i am trying to beat your Moroccan shirt record. will let you know if i do. how many days was it again??
