Relatively safe, but considerably more affordable than some of the other “safe” neighbourhoods in BA, San Telmo appears to offer a sort of old world, artistic charm. It is allegedly one of the most culturally diverse communities in the Capital, which is good, because I am hoping to find some fellow Canadian homeschoolers and/or Germans with children for Alex and Simon to hang out with while we are there!
One thing our coffee date asked us was our individual goals for this 10-month trip – her questions helped us to clarify our thinking somewhat, and served to get us excited about our upcoming adventures. It is warm where we are headed, and this is an especially nice thing to think about while the cold, damp air surrounds me as I write at my computer next to a drafty window overlooking the Toronto skyline!!!
As a result of our conversation the other night, we have decided to remain open to some nomadic possibilities. More specifically, we are considering beginning our journey in the Capital, but then perhaps staying a few months in the province, where rents will most certainly be more affordable, and where we will be exposed to a less urban, “busy” lifestyle.
