Primavera has come!

Fall there? Springtime here and the weather shows. Days of rain then sunshine and the flowers on the trees and in the gardens are in full bloom.

The first day of Primavera (spring) is a big festival throughout the city. Free concerts play in the park and people from every side of the city gather together to enjoy to day.

I went to the Japanese Gardens and the neighboring park to see the flowers and city people enjoy this holiday. Most days have been about 21 degrees (celcius) haha, not F.
This past weekend I went up to el tigre, to go to the Buenos Aires Rowing Club with my host father Ignacio and my friend Stephanie. First time rowing. It was a lot of fun, and i'm feelin the burn today. haha
We rowed a 3 man boat through an Amazon looking canal (water trees and homes alongside the canal) to a lil island for lunch. Stephanie and I took on a historical moment as we, the first time rowers, rowed together in time ! we did awesome! 2012 Olympics here we come :)
