The People, always the people.
The Dog Walkers ... they are sooo annoying but where else do you see a guy with dreadlocks walking down the street with 15 large dogs and they all march along with him like a drill team ?
The really old women sitting in a restaurant with friends, equally really old, laughing and chattering, girlfriends, however old they are.
The women here are respected by men, they have an elegance that is hard to define and they are very fashionable ! I have to work to keep up with them !
The Men ... ahhhh, the men.
Young ones, old ones, in between ones and little baby ones, they are all lovely.
Their mama's teach them manners and how to be polite.
They hold doors for you, they admire you but they don't embarrass you, they are as good with children as the women are and they look kinda nice too.
The Dogs ... Every memory I have of living in Buenos Aires, has a certain Pup in it.
How he was treated like a special being that everyone wanted to touch, to kiss, to love.
How he enjoyed the parks , the other pups and the lifestyle.
He was good at it too!
He walked in "his " parks each day, he learned to go without his leash ( like the other dogs) and he was patience itself when someone brought their tiny baby over to touch the perro .. he would stand as still as a statue so the little baby could touch him .. grab a handful of hair and be pried off .. he never moved, he took great care with Little ones.
The park at the end of the street is now known as Pup's Park .. ask the Mounted Policemen's horses, they loved him too.
The Coffee ... just when I got used to this coffee, I will have to re-adjust to coffee somewhere else.
I wonder if I can ship some back to the US ? .. hmmm..
Note to self .. Pack Coffee.
The skies.. I know , the sky is beautiful everywhere .. but it is more beautiful here most of the time.
I feel like the stars are closer, the sun is definitely closer .. my 20 millionth freckle will tell you that .. and the clouds are amazing and there is no color like Argentine sky blue.
But most of all, I will miss the people.
All of them.
