French classical façades (I think?) with intricate stonework and high ceilings, a beat-up old car with a shitty paint job, construction job residues and a dilapidated sidewalk? This is the postcard of Buenos Aires that they don’t sell in stores.

I stare at this house every time I bike past it. I so wish I could see what it’s like inside!
people who have been on tumblr for years and still use proper grammar like
how you do thing
HAHAHA well, aaactually, my dear Bucket, I used to write like crap a few years ago (tons of run-ons, no capital letters, no accents in Spanish, a few abbreviations, etc.), especially when chatting with people, until these mistakes started to leak into my translations, so now I make a conscious effort to write well because I am a Responsible Adult with a Job. The end.
My aunt and uncle’s house in Banfield, one of my favorite places in the world. I just came to the realization that, after a lifetime of moving around, it’s the only constant in my life that still exists. I cherish everything about it: the lovely inhabitants (four humans, two cats and two turtles), the kitchen and backyard filled with millions of shades of green, the worn-out cobblestone street, the creaking floorboards, the noisy old car, the peeling high ceilings, my uncle’s cramped dark geology lab brimming with minerals, the pool that’s slightly bigger than my bathtub, the rusty bathtub that I’m almost certain I could swim laps in, the array of colorfully-wrapped boxes containing old mementos balancing on top of the TV furniture, the stained glass window on the bathroom ceiling, the roof that’s missing several tiles, the white weather-worn bench we’ve taken many family pictures on, the mossy front yard, the assortment of mismatched knives, forks, spoons, plates, glasses and mugs, the fridge that’s always a brimming mess of tupperware, the wobbly outdoors table that we use in summer for family barbeques… The house is messy and worn out, but it’s been lived in. I’ll take it any day over your standard minimalistic house with all black and white furniture and one houseplant in a strategic location.
Beard and Flowers
As requested by…well, pretty much everyone
I don’t care how much of a hipster trend this is, but the fact that there are men out there who are proud to adorn their beards with flowers makes me inexplicably happy.
I reeeally like how these came out!
