Dale Rojo!

Went to my first soccer game in argentina, and could not have been more excited. A friend of Matt Garlicks, named Liso, invited me to see Independiente (my favorite team in Argentina) play against rival San Lorenzo. Liso is a member of the club, so we had preferred parking, and seats only a few rows from the field right in the center. Unfortunately, Independiente lost (0-1), but the experience was still great. Leaving the stadium took a very long time, as all the home fans have to wait inside until the visiting fans section has cleared out. After that, the streets are so packed with people, they do not let cars out, and even when they do, it's still chaos. It must have taken us two hours to get home from the game, and only 15 minutes to get there. I am hoping that this video I took with my camera of the game will work. Here is the link.

If that does not work, try copy and pasting this link:

My good friend Tim Van Voris will be traveling into BsAs tomorrow. I have not seen him in quite some time, and am excited to hang out with him. Also, I am starting more spanish classes, trying to get as good as I can while I am here. Other than that not too much else is going on. School has been going fairly well, although we have been pretty busy, a few late nights in the classroom lately. For some reason it's not as bad working late in a foreign country. Anyway, that's all for now. Hope everybody is doing well. Talk to you soon.
