Recounting Córdoba: Part I
I have so many stories from Córdoba that I’d like to share with you guys but I am much too lazy to write that much. I made another video! I’m hoping that posterous will let me put it up here… because it’s more than 100 mb I can’t directly upload it so I’m going to try to embed it from YouTube. Here goes!
Hopefully that works 🙂 Love you all!
YAY it worked! So now I have to explain a few things 🙂
The crazy cool talented people (juggling, playing with fire, slacklining, and climbing trees) were just people we saw hanging out in the park on a Sunday a few weeks ago. 🙂 I don’t know if they were practicing street performances or just meeting up for some free entertainment and to hang out with friends. Whatever it was it doubled as free entertainment on a nice sunny day in the park for us too 🙂
I did not go to a tango show. I may not ever go, idk. Those types of shows tend to be really expensive and only tourists go. The video is from orientation at my university…there’s a tango class you can take and the guy dancing is the professor. I was gonna take it but decided I didn’t want more than four classes because the ones Í’m taking are already going to be kind of time consuming. I’m not a big fan of tango anyways. It’s too…stiff and structured for me.
The elevator is the one at school (remember when I said they have weird connecting elevators and such), because my university campus consists of a single skyscraper. There’s no plaza, oval, lakes or anything. It is a smaller school but still pretty 🙂 At first the elevator was cool but now it makes me kind of sick everytime haha I have to face the other wall when I’m going up or down so I don’t stumble out at my destination like a stereotypical drunk American college student. Breaking the mold, that’s me 😉
Also, I don’t think ALL of the highways are tollgated, but on our way to Córdoba we went through seven or eight of the dang things. They seem about as common as weigh stations for trucks in the US.
The puppy was a stray. Stray dogs are more common in Córdoba than junior high kids at the mall in Foco. I thought they were all adorable and lovable (except the one at the end that looked posessed and probably had rabies and wanted to eat our faces off), but Christine “pupblocked” me if you will, and ordered me to stay away from them because they all seemed to have fleas and whatnot…it was hard for me to keep my urge to pet them under control…Anyways, we were asking this couple for directions (before I fell in the river) and they had found this funny stray dog who loved to play in the water. It made me miss Sanchez and Dio so much (I know Dio’s not my dog but I still used to cuddle with him whenever I needed and now I can’t.) Most of the dogs here are hideous (imo) but I’ll tell you about that later.
Oh and the title of the video is completely random…I was getting really bored and annoyed trying to get it to upload so I came up with something random and it saved before I could change it. I just left it because I don’t really care 🙂
