My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires.. 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.

Saturday in Palermo

We needed to get out of the house, away from the neighborhood, somewhere to look at different sights and hear different sounds.
Palermo was the place to go ... browsing through shops in Palermo Soho, I saw a few handbags but couldn't make a decision. Browsing through one of a gazillion shops having end of winter sales, I could not think what to look at first, so I just kept wandering.
This is not decision making time for me .. I am more able to just walk and look and stop to drink some coffee now and then. I think I am in a Low Maintanence phase !!
Don't expect it to last too long though ..
One of the things I really like is the variety of architecture and the colors.
Mixed among the ordinary apartment buildings will be examples of great ultra- modern buildings, old South American style buildings and then behind gates will be private houses that I always wish I could go inside for a look.
It was a good day for walking around. The dreary days finally ended and it was sunny and bright, although still cold, it has been a typical beautiful Winter weekend here.

Beautiful. Hope you're feeling better.

Btw, I'm here in Buenos Aires!! In Recoletta, for the next for months or perhaps longer. Would you be interested in getting coffee sometime?

Palermo Soho is a wonderful place to wander. Love the first photo. Wandering is a good way to mend a broken heart. Take care.
