Hey thanks Mom and Dad for making me, I think you guys did a pretty good job!

That being said, I have about 15 minutes before I have to get ready for class so I'll see what I can fit in. Yesterday was my 21st birthday. Every year my parents ask me if I feel older. Oddly, this year I do. All the sudden, that voice in my head telling me to get back to doing my homework or stay hydrated or do my laundry..... is my own. Creepy, huh? Quick! Someone help me set up my retirement fund! No wait, I think I'll put on some Depeche Mode, instead.

I'm sorry I haven't yet written about my trip up north, minus the mini last post. It was so great. I always feel like it deserves a long amount of time to sit down and write. I will share a quick photo though....

Here's me at the "Salinas Grandes," one of the biggest salt flats in the the world (I think in Bolivia is the biggest?) outside of a mountain town called Purmamarca. It was really cool to go out into the country and imagine all the things I've read about, about Argentina when it was just developing. Also, it was incredible to go to these sleepy towns where people actually still dress like gauchos and call themselves gauchos and feel SUCH intense pride in their traditions.

Okay that's all I've got time for. Much love to all!!! Off to history!
