|Now that's a lot of luggage!|
All our beds were made and everything was in place and ready for us to crash and rest!
|Our friends made sure we had a good supply of some basic foods to get us by the first few days. For those of you who've lived here: check out the "zucaritas" (Argentine Frosted Flakes).|
Of course, after a 'siesta' time, we all agreed to send Daddy out for some goodies. Eric went to buy some bottled water and find a place where we could get fresh "empanadas" and "medialunas." Both of these foods are delicious in Argentina. Needless to say, we had a nice afternoon "merienda" or tea-time with the kids.
We'll be honest, some of the kids have been asking the typical transition questions like, "I'm just ready to get to Argentina!" (Not realizing that this is it). Or, "Mommy, can we just go home now?" Also, "Mommy, I know they're speaking Spanish but they're talking way too fast!" So, in order to keep them talking through it all and sharing what they see/feel/think about it all, we've put together some questions we ask around the dinner table or on other occasions It is special to see this experience "through their eyes" and to remember what it was like for each of us as children adapting to this culture. It is also interesting to think of how our parents did it many years ago...except without internet, without vonage, without cell phones, etc. We remember when it would take almost 3 weeks sometimes to get a letter from the States. Wow! We are blessed! Anyway, enjoy some of these pictures.
|Have you ever seen a toilet flusher button like this?|
|Here's a close -up...for Eric and I this was normal until we got to the States many years ago...but we had forgotten about it until this morning. It had us all laughing!|
|Tired after the long trip|
|And finally...milk in a bag! Something we had forgotten about!|
