Oh, happy day!
After more than three months in the same three t-shirts from the Gap I finally broke down (i.e. begged Andy) and went shopping in Mendoza, Argentina. It was glorious!
I suppose I could have finished off the trip wearing just my old clothes. It would have been the sensible and financially-responsible thing to do. But, I just couldn’t face those shirts anymore. And, I’ve lost some weight on this trip so everything was hanging off me like curtains on a rail. And, I dreaded the idea of rocking up to Buenos Aires, one of the hippest and coolest cities in all the world, wearing my filthy trekking t-shirts that didn’t fit and smelled vaguely of Peruvian roast chicken and the inside of my suitcase. And, I just really, really wanted some new clothes.
So, one evening on our way to meet friends for dinner Andy and I popped into a few likely looking shops on the main drag in Mendoza. We emerged about an hour later with three new tops, a new denim skirt and a new outlook on life (maybe that was just me?)
Here are some pics of the new clothes in action:
