the trip is drawingn to a close, with the usual mixed emotions. On one hand, being here in this impassioned city (buenos aires) is really lighting my candle. Am kehrseite der medaille, (which is a phrase i learned in high school german meaning ón the other side of the coin´and german people laughed at me for using it), i am seriously looking forward to seeing my family again; this wee lass above in particular (sorry to the rest of you, dinny be jealous)...
At the moment, just finishing the gift shopping, and am off now to buy tickets to see the dalai lama. he´s been eluding me for a while, but i´ve nailed him down to sunday.
Skateparks here are amazing, especially after so long scraping the barrel for a decent curb.
So, it´s almost summer all over again. PLans? in no particular order...
-Get a nice wee surfboard and a wetsuit.
-Hopefully get this position of Director of Studies at an Edinburgh language school thats being dangled in front of me!
- Get a left hand drive maroon red VW Beetle.
- DJ as much as possible.
- Raise cash for my dad.
- finish this article on the swedish school fiasco for the magazine
- spend lots of time with my family and get to know wee bailie
- save cash for the move to barcelona in september
- catch up with friends
- see my brother get married, and embarass him in my best man speech
- many others!
so, will be home 2nd may, and will be asleep until the 4th, so perhaps see some of you thereafter.
che che che ciao
