Celebrating Year 2

Today marks the second anniversary of our arrival to Buenos Aires as residentes rather than turistas. This afternoon we celebrated, as usual, with a nice glass of vino tinto, this time at the outdoor cafe attached to the Museo de Belles Artes. The museum is a nice stroll down Azcuenaga, past the Recoleta Cemetery. A beautiful fall day with lots of warm sunshine after some unseasonably cool weather earlier in the week.

Moving here has allowed us to pursue all those activities we envisioned doing as early retirees, especially traveling, both within Argentina and around the world. It helps that our property taxes are virtually nonexistent compared to what we paid in Texas ($128/year here v. $15,000/year in Austin). We're looking pretty content.
