Today, I met up with two girls from my program and we went shopping around Parque Kennedy, which is only 5 or so blocks from my house. Of course I bought a new pair of boots and a new long sleeve shirt! I couldn't resist! Plus, both will keep me warmer. :) That's a good excuse, right? Of course today was nice though. I had my usual layers on, but I got really warm in them. We went to some markets to that were filled with homemade crafts and things, but I didn't buy anything. I do plan on going back there for a whole day sometime and going souvenir shopping though. :) We also just walked around the park for a little while. There's a Bicyclist fair going on this weekend so there were a bunch of bikes being sold, fixed, riden, etc. Also, every Sunday they close one of the main roads so that people can ride their bikes, roller blade, skateboard, walk, etc. Also, in the park there was a line of artists selling their paintings! It was the coolest thing and if I could fit one on the plane I definitely would have bought something because they were gorgeous. One guy was like, "This is canvas, you can take it off, roll it up, and then re-frame it in the states." I considered it, but said no. Of course I did get pictures of them so you could see how pretty some of the stuff was.

|I just thought this was amazing, because it was watercolor|
and there was so much detail. Watercolor is hard to work with.
|This is the one that I really liked..there were quite a few that I|
would've gotten if I had the money & a way to transport them.
Finally, my address here is:

They say not to send any packages because they are expensive and there is a huge chance that they won't make it through customs. If you want to spend money and risk it, that's alright by me, but just be aware if you send me a package and I don't receive it, that's why.
