I have this "thing" about showing photos of my home, but since we are not going to be here but a few days more, I thought I would share some Before and After photos.
Our home here in Buenos Aires, is a 5 story building, that once was a private home.
Little has changed, other than the modernisation that comes with the times and each apartment has been changed by the owners who came and went and some still live here.
Some have lived here all their lives.
They have been more than neighbours, we were taken in and treated as if we had joined a large family. They left us alone, never intruded but always watched out for us.
A million small kindnesses ... sending a translation of something we got in the mail, making phone calls for us that were totally beyond our weak skills in Spanish, calling a plumber when the pipes upstairs broke ( for the 100th time) and advising us when there were things we needed to know and had no way of finding out.
They mourned Tate's ( Pup) death as if he were their sweet pet.
We felt very much a part of a large, warm and loving family.
We will miss this city and these people every day, I am sure.
I think I will miss my bedroom too. You can't help but have sweet dreams in that bedroom !
