Year of the Snake 2013 (from Buenos Aires)

So, I’ve been living in Buenos Aires for the last 3 weeks…1 month (not sure..time has warped itself), and I am working with a talented bunch of people at The Argentina Independent covering all sorts of stories in Argentina as well as important events/issues in South America in general. I will be posting my favourite photos to my website, but as we are constantly publishing content, I thought it best that I link some of my stories on this here blog. Please excuse any defragmentation of my grammar in English, as I am doing my best to learn Spanish and it requires deconstruction and unconscious communication.

This past weekend I celebrated Año Nuevo Chino with local porteños, and let me tell you- they are REAL serious about it. I was nearly trampled over by people wanting to cop a feel of the dragon for good luck. Please check out the photo essay I edited/published today- a collaborative effort- HERE.

This year, the water snake guides us with an air of mystery, cleverness and even seduction. The snake is a trickster, and she is very efficient in getting what she wants. Even in times of retreat, we should not mistake her stillness for inaction, as she is only planning her next play. Let this be the year that we move smoothly through our tasks, quickly and quietly!
