I am home!
I am still working on compiling the book that will finish the project below…
My project for the last three weeks of my gap year is to record the history of my family in Patagonia. Why did they go there? When? What did they cook and eat? What were the parents of my grandma and her two sisters like? What was the lifestyle there? I have been looking at old El Fortín artifacts, interviewing my aunts and great aunts, and researching the documents that my grandma sends me. Right now, as I wrote in a recent blog, I feel like I am living half in the urban Buenos Aires craze and half in the campos of Patagonia with my relatives and ancestors!
