After that, we hit up a salsa club Azucar ("Sugar") which was absolutely the best time dancing i think i've ever had. Lots of Latin fusion music, and at times a cuban guy would get up on stage (with a full crowd of supporters, including our group, right behind him) and lead various dances.
Today I went around town with some friends, mostly on a mission to buy a bus ticket to Medoza (the heart of the wine country) for the end of the week after next with some friends, and to test out some of the best icecream in town. Also, yesterday, I got a personal trainer (a free service) at the gym I joined and hope that his fitness plan for me will combat the diet heavy on alfajores (god's gift to lovers of sweets in argentina - don't worry, i'll probably stuff my extra suitcase full of them on my way back).
Tomorrow the rest of the Tech group leaves for Chile for a week to work on the other course, but I'm staying here for research. I'm really glad for this though, since it will give me time to make friends with the other people in the residencia and really practice my spanish. Plus I am now a cafe addict and think i could sit at a corner cafe for the rest of my life and read and chat and I would be happy. And as several people have alreayd told me this trip but as one argentinian put so well: "Ah, i see, (making hands-off backing-away motion) you are independent lady" and I relish the challenge of having this next week here to figure this town out for myself.
