Even though Buenos Aires was just a few hours away by bus and was probably not so different from Rosario, for me, Buenos Aires represented this dangerous and mysterious place, a lawless dangerous hub where only the bravest could survive. A massive metropolis, where I didn't know anyone and I would literally be on my own.

That, plus the fact that no one within my family or friends' circles would even consider venturing there for more than a few days, meant that I had to be the first one.

It was my dragon that needed to be slain, my Everest summit that needed to be climbed, and it was the place where I got to conquer my fears. A year spent there taught me more than eighteen years living in Rosario.

Of course, when I told my family and friends that I was moving to Buenos Aires, everyone said I was crazy and I wouldn't survive. I didn't have money, I knew no one there, and it was a stupid thing to do.

And not even one person said what I needed to hear the most. They didn't say anything like, "Whoa, you are moving to Buenos Aires, that's awesome, you're gonna make it, you will do it, you'll be fine, everything's gonna be fine, here's a thousand dollars, please take it."

By that time in my life, I was still at a stage where I couldn't just move to a different city because I wanted to be in that city. And I wasn't confident enough to tell people I was moving there because I wanted to, and that it was my life and I could do what I wanted to do with it.

I needed an excuse that everyone could understand (because I needed societal approval) and there were only t

anymore.

I could sleep every night in a different place and I was cool with it. No place to sleep? Park bench, bus station, mate's place or might as well walk around all night. No privacy? No problem. No money? Something would come up. No food? We'd work something out. No friends? Enjoy time alone. After Rosario, there was a short stopover in San Francisco before I ended up in Spain living at my dad's place.

"I wish I had something to drink, " said Gwen, who had apparently let the boat dock by the riverside and came to sit next to me while I was daydreaming.

"Yeah, me too, " Now that she mentioned it I was really thirsty, and both dogs were panting on the floor next to me.

"What were you thinking of?" Gwen asked.

"About the day I moved to Spain." She looked at me confused.

"Spain?" she asked as if I had said something really strange. "Were you a bullfighter?"

Even though she said it with a straight face, I couldn't help but laugh. "Of course not, that's so terrible. Why would you say that?" I asked her, slightly offended.
