So, this is a few days late, but: I quit. Due to the aforementioned problems with housing and the resignation of my boss and her replacement with an eminently disagreeable interim boss, I decided that I was tired of pissing away my savings in Lujan by working for an organization that didn´t appreciate me. So, I went to one last day of building on the Habitat site, moved all my things to Buenos Aires, and that was it. A few days later, I found a pretty good deal on a plane ticket to Peru, and here I am. I´ll here for about three weeks, eating, taking photos, and hiking. I do love it here– everything is a breath of air from Argentine culture, people, food, scenery, etc. The only thing I think I may tire of is– you guessed it– panpipes. I´m keeping a running tally of times I hear Simon and Garfunkel panpipe covers, and I´m at three so far. That´s okay though.
Oh, and for any of my tiny readership in the DC area: I changed my flight and I´ll be back in the US on June 14th. Let´s party.
