No place like

We have a home. Moving in tomorrow. We tried to arm ourselves with US dollars (dolares estadounidenses which I think sounds much cooler) but failed, likely due to some MasterCard policies. Odd that so many items are denominated in the US currency, particularly as it’s generally getting weaker, and the peso argentino is pretty stable right now.

Not a major problem, though, our new housemate Simone can deal with pesos. She’s a classic Northern England girl whose been here for 4 years. Lots of local connections might prove very useful.

We’ve made a few trips into food markets eyeing off the food and drooling, but leaving empty handed what with having no kitchen in which to stow/cook/chill it. That changes tomorrow and we’re awfully pleased.
