Feliz Ano Nuevo

Happy holidays from Buenos Aires, where we moved in early November and are still technically residing illegally, or at least just on a tourist visa until we eventually get our work visas approved.

After looking over some of the best and worst apartments in the city, we found a place in a quiet end of the Palermo neighborhood, handed over several thousand dollars in cash that we spent a week withdrawing out of ATMs, and signed a two-year lease in mid-December We've even bought our first real appliances. All our personal stuff has arrived from DC but is still sitting in customs waiting, like us, on our work visas. Hopefully everything will start coming together in the next couple weeks. We'll have plenty of room for visitors, so after our stuff arrives we'd love to host you.

In the meantime though, we just want to say happy holidays and best wishes for 2007 to all of you. Hopefully we'll see you down here before too long.
