Semana Santa

1 Apr

This week starts Semana Santa, or Holy Week, and most people have tomorrow and Friday off. Unfortunately I’ll be working on Thursday, though we’ll still get Friday off. A lot of people use this 3 or 4 day weekend as an excuse to get out of Buenos Aires and go somewhere like the coast for the last time before it gets really cold. We’ve had some wonderful weather lately and it’s been a very pleasant early autumn.

I think back to previous years when I’ve had 3 or 4 day weekends and how I used the extra day advantageously and traveled somewhere. However, I can no longer just take off at will. I just don’t have the funds to be able to do so. As it is this was a really thought month, and next month I have to pay 6 months advance rent, leaving me with another tough month ahead.

Even without being able to go somewhere for the weekend, I’m still going to get out of the apartment and do as much as I can in the city. After all, this is still a destination city, and there’s always something going on whether you have money to spend or not. It’ll be nice to get a few more runs in before the weather gets too nasty, and sleeping in a bit would be nice for a change. It sounds awfully domesticated, but I’m still all about traveling.
