A far-off view of the Ushuaia, Argentina airport, where we arrived 3 days ago. We walked past this charming field the first time that we went into the city center.

This week… What I’m reading: Wrecked by Jeff Goins and 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess by Jen Hatmaker What I’m doing: Sitting on my bed with the balcony door open, intermittently focusing on my computer, and then look out at the majestic view of lush green mountains, and terra-cotta tiled rooftops, with intensely white clouds on the horizon. What I’ve been making: I’m learning my way around the food here. We’ve been enjoying a lot of variations on eggs for breakfast, and I’ve found enough […]
