Where I stayed
Philip is a student from Germany, Angie is a student from Colombia, Naehr (sp?) is Argentine but is apparently still a student with international status, and Carmen is another American who, after traveling through France and finding a love for theology, ended up here at ISEDET for Master degree work.
I am humbled by how difficult it has been to understand people, at least for my first few hours off the plane. When I first got to ISEDET earlier today, no one was here except a couple of secretaries and a doctoral student, so I walked down the street to get a slice of ham pizza
I brought three electrical adapters for the wall outlets, since Buenos Aires uses the German Schuckostecher (sp?) and Australian plugs, depending on how old the buildings are. Looks like my room has the old German plugs : ( Will have to talk with Sra. Gladis in housing to see if they can do something about that.
This is all fantastic, by the way. : ) I'm enjoying the adventure. Finally got the internet working well, and the other students have told me that Skype works well if you go to a part of the building with stronger Wi-Fi signals (hooray!).
Headed out into the city in a few minutes - some of the students are going shopping, so I'm going to tag along!
