The house of my friend in Adelaide is full of light, art and colour, and the backyard is an oasis of trees. The house itself is a lovely old building with lots of space, quite distinct to the places in Buenos Aires and it's interesting to see how people share a house with a lot of space or just a little. Here there is so much room to move that you could sit on the front porch, in the living room, the kitchen space, or venture into the enormous backyard, which means there is always the opportunity to be alone. For me this is the deal maker.
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.
