>Argentina 2, Day 30


All of a sudden it became fall. Leaves have begun to change (I love how this tree stands out against the violet of the Morning Glory flowers behind it) and we figured out how to turn on the heaters. This house is a bit like a summer cabin. Drafty, with a random assortment of paperback books and only a few kitchen utensils and other modern electronic appliances. No one really NEEDS a toaster, a blender, a microwave, a dishwasher, a washer or dryer, or a vacuum cleaner. We manage quite well with our one spatula, one ladle, one wooden spoon, a broom, and of course the most important thing, our internet cable.

  2. >Sounds JUST like all my fieldwork experiences — an odd collection of “furnished” places. How long can one survive with one pan and two spatulas and a wisk? About 6 months. With just a wee bit more you can survive a chilly year in Scotland!
