I know the clever title of the post probably gave it away, but.... yes, it's true, I am going to be back in Buenos Aires this summer! I can barely contain my excitement. Don't tell, but the email I received confirming my job in Buenos contained a request that I not tell my friends or colleagues about the placement. But I can trust you, right? Right??! Anyway, our secret.*
After telling my friends J, K and B about my return to Buenos (by sending them a message on our google group email list, "chichichilelele@googlegroups," obvz), J sent around a song that was inexplicably popular in Chile when we were there -- the group is Argentine (Mambru) the song is called "A Veces," and I think you need to hear it to understand.
Also, I would like to point out that the youtube video is NOT the real video for the song. The real one was WAY slicker, as you can imagine. Of course, like all homemade videos that dorky Argentine guys make in their parents' basement, this one has a certain charm. There's something kind of fantastic about five guys in shades bobbing awkwardly in front of a half-open closet and a picture of a beagle. And you gotta love the hot rain effect. Esta noche me quedo con vos!!!! I bet this video got all of those guys some major action.
I digress. The point of all of this is that I am psyched beyond belief about going back to Buenos, living it up, working at an awesome NGO, and eating steaks the size of a miniature pony. CAN. NOT. WAIT.
