Meeting Portenos

I've come to realize that I'm very lucky with my home-stay family. Given, I don't have any host brothers that want to go out and party every night, but at the same time, everything happens for a reason. It only gives me most the motivation to go out and meet portenos. That being said, that's exactly what I did last night.

So, I've become great friends with a guy named Andy from LA. He and I are both interested in the same things and we both are super pumped to get out and meet portenos. Hence, last night, Andy invited me to a party. It was through a friend of his down here, and I was pretty psyched to go...but a little nervous too. How much Spanish do I really know...we were to find out.

Anyways, long story short, the party was great. I made three porteno friends, two of which live very close. We're going to hang out and have language lessons. Spanish one day, english the next. Estoy emocionado!
