In the early morning, the guy left the bus, and I was still sitting with all my belongings. I had been sitting there and wondered what to do if I got killed all of a sudden, what my family would say, what my last blog post was, and then he just leaves the bus like a normal passenger! Which he might have been all the time :p
I arrived in Mendoza two hours late. Found my hotel. My wine tasting buddy wrote “come over”, and I went to her home. We slept all day, and then made pasta with tomatoes. Then we went out with a group of couchsurfers. Drinking beer, not wine :/ But it was fun to sit five people who had never seen each other before. Three local, one from Oregon, and me.
The Oregon guy convinced me of actually learning Spanish. Not by his own words, but while talking about the process that he had had. I decided to buy a book tomorrow. And to download the Spanish series La Casa de Papel. I wondered who I should identify with in that series. I’ve read somewhere that when learning a language through a series, you need to identify with someone. They said Tokio:
A girl! I love being a girl. She is supposed to be very smart. I’m her, and fuck the rest, if they’re not with me.
Then an old car showed up and took us all home. The driver hated Greta Thunberg, said “she is a product”. I didn’t argue since I was very grateful just getting home in his gas chamber, but she is definitely not a product. She is someone who (un)fortunately lacks the way to filter out all emotions that global warming would give you if you really read up on it and thought about it and felt about it, the koalas, refugees, children etc. A bit damaged, you could say. Not a 100% human. And that’s good, since most humans have no problem in committing global suicide. It’s part of our genes, I suppose. But maybe weird people like Greta could save us!
I had no USB cable today. Must have somehow forgot it, again. But here’s a Wikipedia picture of Mendoza:
