Wow, I think this is the longest we’ve gone without updating the blog. Nothing’s wrong — just needed an internet break, I suppose. And we’ve been exploring Buenos Aires.

We’re staying in the Palermo neighborhood, which is like a city in and of itself, and spent several days just wandering around. Chris has been ramping up his new job and I spent a lot of time reading.

The best thing? We have our first visitor! Chris’s mom is spending 10 days with us. We’ve really missed our family and friends, so we’re so happy to have her here. Holly is also happy, since she brought her some new bones!

We’ve been learning a lot about Argentinian culture and history, as well as playing lots of card games. So to catch you up on the past several days, here are some select photos:
