Where We are Living Now...

Sorry we haven't posted in awhile. We've been spending all our time looking at apartments and getting our daughter setup for school. Everyone back home is requesting I take more pictures and I hate to say I've slacked off on that too. However, I thought I would share a few pics of our new neighborhood.

We are setup in a temp rental for 2 months or so in the Recoleta. It's a 968sqf, 2 bedroom apartment that suites us just fine for now. It's furnished nicely and has everything we need to function.

Our Temp. Apartment

It is a little tough going from 3,600 sqf to 968 sqf and we are getting use to having everything on a much smaller scale. You should see the size of the bathrooms. My wife about died when she saw the size of the washing machine ( you can see it in the last picture peeking out from behind the bottom cabinet).

It is in a great neighborhood though. The Recoleta can be a little on the touristy side, however it works in our favor since most employees in the shops and restaurants are use to customers speaking English.

Our New Neighborhood

Here are a few shots of the neighborhood. Most people give me a "Yeah Right!" look when I tell them Buenos Aires looks a lot like Paris. Let me know what you think.

Hi Wilbanks Family,

Pictures are amazing the candy shop photo looks like I am standing right outside the window. I saw the travel channel last night. The didn't show the city of B.A. up close. But the man said Argentina reminded him of Italy, Paris and other places. Great shots..

Hey you guys!!! I can't believe I didn't get to tell you goodbye! We are missing yal and hope you are well. Some family looked at your house this a.m. Hope you can sell it soon. The Estate Sale must have been a success, based solely on the numbers of people who hiked up and down your stairs/driveway. Please keep in touch! Laura Kennemer

Thanks for the comments on the photos. Yes BsAs is a lot like Italy too. Most people here are of Italian descent and speak there version of Spanish with an Italian accent.


We miss you too. It was a crazy week trying to get everything done before our flight. We will stay in touch.
