Here and Gone Again

So I made it back from Buenos Aires in one piece. Not even a close call. Boring, eh? The city did try to make me ill as I woke up on Monday morning feeling like I was about to get a dose of the flu that seemed to be laying everyone low but I managed to get over that with about 30 clementines and 10 oranges. 

Buenos Aires was, in short, great fun as always. More expensive than last time, quite definitely colder but fun. Being there as a tourist is way more fun than being there as a resident. I'll try and get one of two photos posted at some point.

I'm actually only back for a few hours. At 4am I'm returning to Santiago to take a flight to London (with a fantastic 5 hour stopover in South America's worst airport, Sao Paulo. Yey) for about 3 weeks. I'm going to try to blog at least once a week from back home. (If any of you are worried about my cats-and of course you are-they and the house are being left in very capable house and cat sitting hands :)

I can't wait to go back. It's been almost 19 months since my last time home and I'm really looking forward to catching up with friends and my family (well, most of them jeje). I'm also going to see West Brom v Arsenal and then against Everton, something worth the price of the airfare alone. Boing Boing.

This is possibly the worst blog post ever but I'm too busy to think about writing anything interesting. As I said, I'll try to do some blogging when I'm back. If not, you'll have to wait 'til the end of August.

Safe travels! Enjoy the football matches. Doesn't Everton have a goalie from the U.S.? I'm thinking Tim Howard plays for them, but I could be wrong.
