lamb kidneys???!!!!!

so this past saturday i had a very typical argentine day.
i got up and had some tea with bread for breakfast. then i went to julieta barros house for lunch. when someone invites you for lunch it is LUNCH. julie is a girl at the rincon church who is 27, and she has a 19 yr old sister named stefani and a brother named douglas who is 16. they all live together and it was a fun time. they cooked chicken and potatos. then we feasted on some ice cream. the ice cream here is really good. it took about 2 hours or more for lunch.. they talk at the table eating for a long time. then we decided to go to the park. we took our mate (pronounced ma-tay) which is green tea which is drunk from a special container. we relaxed in the park and i taught stefi and julieta how to throw a frisbee... it was a good time. then we went home (on the way home we listened to the 2 local soccer teams that were playing each other that day, talleres verses belgrano), got ready for church and had a good church service. after church they invited me back to their place for dinner. the father had cooked up a whole lamb, along with some potato salad. the lamb ribs were good. he put a round piece of meat on my plate and i tried it... i probably would have to cuss to say how aweful it tasted.. it was like eating trash.. it turned out that it was the kidney! that is one thing i hope to never taste again. then after the meat and potatos there was some ice cream. then after the ice cream there was coffee. by then it was midnight and time to go home. oh yeah! that reminds me of one more thing... when julie stopped to fill up, she explained to me that she can use gas or natural gas, so because natural gas was cheaper she bought that... they stuck this hose into the front of the car and filled it up.. that was so crazy.. she has a switch on the car so she can switch between regular gas and natural gas... CRAZY!
ps would any girls in the US listen to soccer on the AM dial?????

Hey Man, it sounds like you are having a good time over there. I wonder if the Argetines would think that crawfish taste nasty? Culture is amazing.

Is a lamb kidney more intense than a live goldfish? Also, check out my new post...

I'm so glad you're posting so many updates and stories...I love hearing about all the details.

I bet we could find books in Spanish here. Do you want me to try to find some and send them to you?
