My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires, 8 years ago. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

A Friday Walk

 So, this is , according to some, just what you don't want to encounter on a walk. The dirty looks were mostly for Pup who was blissfully unaware that there was a cat in the vicinity, or he would have been over there, happy and wanting to make friends. Something tells me, making friends is not on this little guys mind.
We took the Pup for a walk through the parks on the way to running errands. The parks were pleasantly not crowded, tomorrow they will be full of people, the Feria will be in full swing and there will be everything under the sun for sale . Very colorful and fun and interesting. But for today, it was fairly quiet and peaceful.
Those are school buses, there must have been something going on at one of the Museums.
This park still has the old red British telephone booths. 
Those are more of those Ombu trees that grow forever and become bigger than a few houses.
Right down that street is an Hermés shop, Cartier and Louis Vuitton. Just so you know.
The Cultural Center. A great museum, with a very good cafe and you can buy tickets to see interesting shows.. 
Our Lady of Pilar .. this church and convent are old. Very old.. built in 1732. Very beautiful. Now a National Historic Monument ( since 1942)..
After picking up some much needed croissants from L'epi, we meandered back home with the Pup and relaxed.  
Tomorrow, maybe the Feria.
