Short and Sweet

Hi! Great day today in Buenos Aires! We had a long orientation at the  main Habitat office and learned all about what they do here! Ive for lots of details but those will come later.

We met our first homeowners today too! We went way out to an impoverished community and helped get  their building ready for its roof! Lots of cement mixing! It was 97 degrees today. Then we had one fuck of a storm. Luckily it was quick and after work. Tomorrow should be cooler.

Food here is awesome, though sometimes I don't even know what I'm ordering when I say it! Haha. I need Spanish lessons. The team is diverse in age but all gets along really well with lots of laughs. And every night ends in wine. Malbec. It's Argentinian and cheap. The money system is fucked here and they'll tell you that straight up here. But for us on a food budget, we make out really well. Don't worry, your donations don't go towards my wine! Just straight towards the Argentina Habitat affiliate!

We celebrated out team lead's birthday tonight which brought us all closer.

Tomorrow is a full day and my old NCCC boots are ready at the door!

!Buenos noches sueño con los ángeles!
