El Primer Dia

Hola! It's my first day here in Buenos Aires, and I decided to start a blog to keep friends/family/strangers-with-too-much-time-on-their-hands updated. I decided to title the blog- which means "Revealing my own face"- based on a part of a poem by Argentine poet, Jorge Luis Borges. The stanza goes:

A veces en las tardes una cara
nos mira desde el fondo de un espejo;
el arte debe ser como ese espejo
que nos revela nuestra propia cara.

This is the first time I am traveling alone, and hope to learn not only about this city but about myself. (Corny? I hope not.) Hopefully I won't bore readers (if there are any?) to death in the process.

Hasta luego.
