Five Months Update

I’m excited to be done with Argentina. I spent a little over two months there, and while I loved Argentina, I have mixed feelings about the people. I always thought that Americans were cold, but compared to Argentina we are not so bad. Uruguay was an easy-going country that reminded me of Venezuela with the light-skinned, attractive, and friendly people. Only in Uruguay have shopkeepers insisted I carry a balance instead of worrying about finding change.

I think I may have what is called post-infectious IBS. It happens after something like a parasite alters the lining of your gut (sometimes permanently), leading to symptoms like bloating, pain, and gas for an indefinite amount of time. From my internet research it seems to be somewhat common after travel to third-world countries. Or maybe it is small bowel bacterial overgrowth syndrome. I haven’t had a cup of coffee in two months and tomato sauce and many raw vegetables are off limits. If it’s a parasite then it’s a big parasite because sometimes it feels and sounds like something in moving around in there.

I’ve had ongoing stomach problems for three and a half months now, and while I think I’m getting better, it’s something I need to plan around and think about. At least it’s not affecting my face! This experience reminds me of when I had hives, which took over two months to resolve. One day at a time…

Next stop is Rio de Janeiro until Carnival. I decided to visit those three small countries after Brazil and make a go for every country in South America. Why not? If I can get to Veneuzuela then I’m confident I can make it.

I feel like I’m at the midpoint of my trip.

Hope you get better. I have been living in international environments for quite a few years, and yeah, there are usually mixed reviews about us Argentine people. Our fame is pretty bad in Latin America. On the other hand, in my experience, there are many others – specially Italian, Spanish and even Americans- who actually love us. Although I believe getting girls was not one of the main goals of these people I am talking about while in BA. I do feel Americans are so much colder anyway. Maybe it’s that I do not totally get Americans, just as you may not totally get Argentinians.

Let me know if you need tips on Rio. Make sure to stop by Buzios and Angra dos Reis while there. They’re not too far from the city, and they’re both gorgeous beach towns. You will LOVE Buzios with its great nightlife and beatiful beaches, plus now it’s vacation time in Brazil, so it’s the high season in Buzios (all the people in Rio go there!).

For Carnival, the party is on the north of Brazil though, Rio is mainly for tourists…

The girls said they built me a large crotch.

Yeah yeah i know salvador has a less touristy carnival, but all the people i’ve met from rio insist that theirs is the best so i doubt it will be bad.

So rio carnival it will be!! It sort of came down to scheduling.

Sounds like the same symptoms I had when I was in Uruguay. Only I never had the problems you did on the west side of SA.

moi – you can always recognize most americans while travelling. they like to talk about “how they can’t wait to get home” and random material shit/convenience that they miss having.

Spend carnical in Rio…

Salvador may have the better parade blah blah blah… but the women in Rio blow Salvador away. in fact Salvador was the one place in Brazil I wasn’t impressed.

and like i said if you need it…i’ll send you a bunch of the best bars and clubs for non pro pickups..
