Argentina Superclassico and thoughts on the game

This past Saturday I took in my first futbol game during this current trip in Argentina. A superclassico – River Plate vs. Boca Juniors friendly match played here in C贸rdoba. River won 2-0 with both goals coming in the 1st half in the goal behind where we sat.

This post is a quick recap of the day along with a few thoughts of mine on Argentina soccer games and finally a story about my first superclassico that I went to.


My friends picked me up from my apartment, handed me a River jersey to wear and we headed out.

Hasta Luego 2013 – Year in Review

During the end of the year in Argentina I had some time off work to drink way to too much fernet and reflect on how the 2013 year went and think about what I want 2014 to look like.

For me, 2013 has been quite the ride.


Easily my biggest accomplishment was packing up shop and moving to C贸rdoba, Argentina. I spent the final 4 months of 2013 enveloped in Spanish, eating media lunas and asado, and drinking mate and fernet. Leaving the comfy life I had established in San Francisco was certainly a gamble but this life move is giving me an experience that I will never regret. Everything here has been a new and wonderful adventure from spending Christmas here, to living through city wide riots, and even mundane things like going to the supermarket or the gym.
