First week in Argentina

Well i guess its time to update this thing, mom seems to be nagging me to do it. Well, I'm not good at this writing thing, in English or Spanish. so i guess i will just list out some things that are different I've noticed.

  • They drive like nut cases here, Right of way is backwards compared to the US. Cars get right of way over everything and if your in the way they wont stop.
  • The Cops here don't do much of anything but stand around talking, and sometimes they take you in for no reason at all.
  • Also they drive Very Aggressively, like speeding, going around cars at high speeds, its all fun.
  • People are So friendly, they say hi, do the kiss on the check thing even if they don't know you. A lot of times you are walking down the street and you get a bunch of random people saying hi to you.
  • It is VERY HOT. it was like 110 degrees outside the first day of school i had. So hot that a lot of people just go to bed in the middle of the day.
  • Everyone's houses have metal gates around them and shutters over the windows.
  • They stay out Very late, most days i don't get to bed till 12 AM.
  • And on the Weekends people are out partying till 4, 6, 8 in the morning.
  • There is Coke EVERYWHERE, although there is a Coke Plant in the town, there are signs for Coke every 20 feet.
Well that's all i can think of right now. So on to my house.
I like it, its nice. My family has a Flat Screen TV, Internet, a little pool in the back. My family is very friendly and they want to give me everything. They are very Open and want to learn English and about America. They also own a Gym right around the corner from my house. My school is about 4 or 5 blocks from my house so you can walk. At school everyone is so friendly, everyone asking me questions, some good, some bad. And school gets out at 12:30 in the Afternoon. That's really nice.

I don't know, that's all i can think off. Oh, the Meat is GOOD. If you want to see Pics go to my Facebook, Post a comment!!!
