first North Carolinian spring

So, these photos are a little older now, but I realized I uploaded them and never shared! These are from springtime in Durham. Duke Gardens is a lovely place and friends are generous models and suffer me with (minimal) complaint.

Somewhere in Alabama – pulling off the side of the road for a photo is usually worth it.

Home in Recoleta

So, I’m here. Buenos Aires, Argentina. And I have been for some weeks now. 6 weeks, in fact. I paused to count.

I’ve settled in well, I think. I’ve made some friends, mastered my favorite Argentineans snacks, formed a strong opinion on where the best empanadas are to be found, and have finally figured out most slang, I think.

Of course, I’ve also taken quite a few pictures.

These are all pictures from my neighborhood, Recoleta.
