It has been raining non-stop for two days now, which I find somehow calming. It means that there are not as many people on the street; they are either indoors or in buses and taxis, and the city has this glow about it. It´s just a steady rainfall, that makes it pleasant to put on your boots, grab your umbrella and walk. In the afternoon when it gets a little darker, the sky just has this glow. Everything is wet, but the colours seems more vivid and the buildings contrast against the silver-white glow that envelops everything below.
I am an Australian who has been living in Buenos Aires, Argentina for four years. My perception of the city has changed as I have adapted to my environment and new home. I am somewhere between a tourist and a local and find beauty in my everyday environment.
