Goodbye, Buenos Aires -
We're leaving here in about 20 minutes. A depressing fact, that. I want to thank Buenos Aires for introducing me to a few things: the awesome cartoons of Ricardo "Liniers" Siri, now officially my favorite cartoonist. Alfajors, two little cookies with dulce de leche stuck in between them. For the buses, which are one of the best examples of folk art in motion I have ever seen. For (and pardon me for art geeking out a moment) a color palette that will inform my work for the better. I'm going to miss so much, my boxing class, the little yellow cat at the kiosko on our block, double espressos at the bookstore-cafe, the habit of giving a little candy in lieu of change if the cashier doesn't have a 5 centavo piece. Goodbye for now, Buenos Aires, and thank you for everything. God willing and the creek don't rise, we'll be back before you know it.
