Dani, Isa and I celebrated the very Argentinean Friend's Day. I collaborated with Isa in the photo shoot of her lovely Roque Bags. The good-byes dinners, brunchs and parties started to get serious (just in case, because I still didn't have my Visa). I practiced a lot of yoga to handle the insomnia, anxiety, tiredness and over-excitement.
The Visa was issued. Abso-bloody-lutely brilliant! I jumped and scream in the street and hug a couple of strangers. Everything was real now. Loads of things to do, little to sleep, and massive amounts of last minute paperwork. Procrastination (and uncertainty) bit me in the ass. In the middle of the month After the last, and very emotive good-bye party, I arrived in Caracas to keep the paperwork going on. Me and my friends went for a weekend to Galipán (last photo) it was the best part of my trip.
Crazy month. After a day-long scale in Sao Paulo I finally arrived in London on September 15th. My dear friend Rocio made a place for me in the home in Arnos Grove. I enrolled at Uni, started looking for a room (mission impossible), thanks to lovely Hayley I went to Playgroup Festival got to see all my friends from last year. The weather was perfect and London was as spectacular as I remembered.
Classes started and at the very end of the month I found a room. Also I started to hanged out with my Uni mates. Everything was weirdly familiar but awesomely new at the same time. Finally, I took that (last photo) as a sign, of course.
Shoreditch Grind; Bonfire night; world's ugliest postcard (I sent it to my friend Andrea for her birthday); my friendly neighbor, the red cat; early signs of Christmas and more celebrations and pub nights with my uni friends. On the 21, my friend Marie invited me to participate in a very cool video project: 60 seconds daily recording before the end of the world. That made my month.
December it's been full of good and interesting books (mostly for Uni), celebrations, treats, delicious food, traveling, surprises, friends and a world that even though it looked like it might... didn't end, at the end. That's exactly how I wish the next year will be. A nice mixture of happiness, traveling, good friends and hard work (yes, work, I'm inspired, I want to make 2013 the best year.)
The last photo was taken this morning in Caracas.
As you can see today is a very nice sunny and blue day.
Thanks to all the people that made this year special,
including of course the people that read this blog.
I really hope to have you in my life in 2013.
Happy New Year everyone! x
