Bienvenidos a Buenos Aires!

Well, orientation in Chicago has come and gone and the Argentina/Uruguay group of seven has now been in Buenos Aires for five days. Since arriving in Argentina we have had supper that lasted until 12:30 a.m. with Los Jovenes – the young people – at the Lutheran church in Buenos Aires and arrived to church 40 minutes late in San Martin (due to public transportation issues). After the church service, we were able to stay and share pizza with the congregation and play soccer with the kids. Thank goodness for their patience because both my Castellano (dialect of Spanish spoken here) and fútbol skills are currently lacking!

The YAGM group with two of Los Jovenes, Rubén and Ayelen, from the Lutheran church in Buenos Aires.  Note the winter coats and scarves.  It is, in fact, winter in the southern hemisphere and today when I was wearing two pairs of pants, four shirts, a sweatershirt, a scarf, and my winter coat was the first time I’ve felt warm since leaving Chicago!  Read: central heating is a gift!
