Week 38, Project 365

I shared some photos Monday from our day in Cordoba city but wanted to share more. This is the closest "big" city to us; it's about 35 minutes away. As the provincial capital, it's where we have to go for important paperwork and the primary purpose for our trip Monday was to see if our national I.D. cards were in yet. Still no cards, but it was such a pretty day we enjoyed a little sight-seeing. As we walked along I happened to look up and see this view.
The building in the foreground is quite old, dating from the 1600s I believe. Behind it is a more "modern" church from the 19th century. It's old enough to need some work done on it, hence the scaffolding all around.

I took this photo from inside looking out so you could see people walking by and get an idea of how TALL these doors are -- they're humongous!

I hardly ever post photos of people. I won't get into all the reasons why; those who are in ministry know there's a fine line with the whole privacy thing. And some have specifically asked we not post photos of them. But this week I have one of us to share. That's actually a very pretty fountain, and not the giant birdbath it appears to be.

Tuesday after class I snapped this photo of my tutor's porch. Her yard is lush with plants and from the front you can't see the porch except from certain angles. Doesn't it look like a most inviting place to sit, read a book and sip iced tea?

When Del Potro won the U.S. Open, there was great rejoicing in the land!

A quick stop at the YPF turned into a long one when the driver in front of us suddenly shifted into reverse and slammed into the front of our car. Our little Fiat Uno was no match for his SUV and sustained a broken headlight, bent bumper and I'm not sure what else.

Even though it's still officially winter, one of our rose bushes burst forth with a blossom this week! I have to say, I'm inordinately proud of this photo. This is right-out-of-the-camera with no changes whatsoever.

In preparation for a more informal, local soccer tournament this Saturday I washed all the uniforms on Friday.

They finally hauled the 40 foot container off the not-so-empty lot next door. It took quite a bit of maneuvering and almost maimed a few trees in the process. You really should click on the photo and enlarge it to see exactly how tight of a fit it was -- we thought they were going to have to take down part of the fence.

That's all from my little corner of the world. If you haven't visited Sara yet, make sure you stop by and see who else is participating in Project 365 this week.
