Where I live now

Emily always tells me I need more pictures, so I took some late this afternoon of my new place. Since I've been living here almost 2 months, I guess it's not so new.

This is where I spend most of my time, and where I am right now. Note that desktop, courtesy of Mr. Fuqua. Also note those champagne flutes for 2. What what?

This is the view out my window from my computer.

This is the view out my bedroom window from lying down in bed.

Not really sure why I took a picture of this corner.

Apparently late afternoon makes taking pictures tricky. This is upstairs in our living room, looking out towards Avenida Cabildo.

This is our living room looking the other way. To the left you can see the stairs to take you toward the terrace. I'm leaning against the countertop, which you can just barely see in the left bottom corner. Over there is the kitchen, 2nd bathroom, and front door.

I live on the line between Belgrano and Palermo. I'm not exactly sure which it is, but it's more Belgrano. However, this view from out our living room window is all technically Palermo.

I'm not sure why I decided to take a picture of the street from 8 stories up. I'm not exactly known for my photography skills.

I like this view of the Catholic church off in the background. I have a tendency to gaze out the window at this steeple whenever I am in the living room....which isn't that often.

Now, the reason to live here: our third level, the rooftop terrace. Here's our table with parrilla (grill) in the background.

The terrace from another angle. We don't currently have the reclining chairs out, since it's winterish. Even though it's sometimes a little chilly with the wind, I've been coming up here and reading Anna Karenina in the sun recently. Very relaxing.

I liked the articles a few posts ago. As for snap, they tell you that solely for motivational purposes. :)

Thank you for writing. I've enjoyed reading all about your adventures into a new culture. We miss you, Van Ness!

OLPC -- I need the motivation.

Jen, thanks! I appreciate it!

You should read War and Peace. It would keep you on the terrace for a while.

What's with the towel being anchored by the wine bottle?

I'm not sure I'm up for the challenge of reading War and Peace again! I remembered loving Anna Karenina, but it...didn't wow me this time around.

You don't like my towel hanger, Jenn? ;)
