As cognitive neuroscientist Ellen Bialystok points out, bilingualism sharpens the mind. In this spirit, I have decided to write my travel blog in both languages as they pop up - depending on what's relevant in the moment.
This decision also saved me from procrastinating further on documenting my time in Argentina, which started on May 23. A day-by-day play of my life here would be overindulgent on my part and a bore for you, so I'll use my best judgment on interesting, beautiful, bizarre, or mouth-watering things!
Thank you for being a friend and showing an interest in my travels - it makes me feel less alone at the other end of the world.
