I've been having a hard time finding motivation for this blog lately.

It's not that I don't enjoy writing it, at least when I can think of interesting things to say.

The problem is more that my life has slipped into a bit of a routine, so it's difficult to come up with interesting perspectives on what I'm seeing.

For instance, in the last few weeks, there have only been a handful of things that have happened of which I'm able to write much about.

The first is Maria, my new tango partner, who I've also been doing language exchanges with. We've been getting along very well. She's studying translation, and thinking of going to America for a semester next year.

The second is that Alejandra and Gonzalo, my friends from Uruguay, came for a visit. I spent Sunday showing them around, and I'm looking forward to seeing them again when I go back to Montevideo next month.

Since I've been having a hard time coming up with much to say, I'm thinking of only updating this every month or so, and thinking about some interesting, smaller aspect of Argentine life to discuss.


One thing that I'd like to add before I close is that everyone has been saying how bad Clinton's staying in the race for the Democratic nomination has been for Obama. Although it is dividing the Democrates, it's also kept Obama in the headlines pretty much constantly. McCain, on the other hand, has been somewhat forgotten. As they say, there's no such thing as bad publicity. At the very least, I think the extra exposure hasn't been hurting Obama. It might not be a completely horrible thing if Clinton does stay in until August, even though I see no reason why this would be good for her.

Hi Ian,
Ah, yes it gets to be tougher to write about interesting things when you have a routine.
How about posting some pictures? You can put them on flicker, and there's a way to easily have flickr pictures show on blogspot, just go to settings.
