El Tigre

Yesterday I went to El Tigre with my program. It was really nice. You know someone told me that they were all "Artesan's market" out, and I know exactly what they mean. I mean oncce you've been to Recoleta and San Telmo, it is so much different things you can buy. However, El tigre was different. It seemed like it had a little bit for everyone. I mean it had your Argentine souvenirs ofcourse, but it also had furniture, clothes, and fruit. I didn't buy any fruit but I wish I had. Since I've been here the only fruits that I have eaten are bannanas and mandarin oranges. I mean don't get me wrong they are good, but every once in a while you want a little bit variety. So at el tigre, me and my friend walked around and looked at the merchandise. His family is small so he's done with the gifts, me on the other hand still have so many people to buy gifts for. I mean I have a lot of things, but a lot of it isn't designated to one specific person. Another thing is hoping that they like their gifts. We always hope that people are grateful, but we never know. Also since I am the only one in my program who bought one suitcase it's going to be a field day trying to get all my clothes back in with the gifts. Granted I bought really small things, I'm just worried. I know that has a lot to do with my excitement since I only have 13 more days in Buenos Aires. It's crazy to think about how time has gone by. I can honestly say that I enjoyed my time here, but I am so ready to go back home and see my family, eat my favorite foods, and wear more clothes than what I bought here. I have literally been rotating like 6 jeans, 10 shirts and 3 pajama pants. That is ridiculous. i just need some variety in my life. I am so excited I've just been thinking about what it's going to be like to be back in the states with familiarity. I can't wait. We also took a 2 hour boat ride which would have been really nice had the weather been better. It was so windy and cold, but it was still very nice and peaceful. Well until next time...
