So, in my determination to continue my exercise regime, I walked the 1/2 mile to my International, Ladies Exercise Club: CURVES.
It was closed for today's holiday... What holiday ?
In my increasingly less pathetic Español, I chatted up a lady - also disappointed in a closed shop - and she told me it was a one day holiday in remembrance of some event about 2 hundred years ago. But I could not quite determine what the historic event was......( she implied that the motivation for the holiday was political - please the masses for the votes).
Help from TA posters in the know. Just Curious.
Then, I had the temerity (I was on a roll) to ask her where she got her hair cut - it had layers, unlike most Porteñas' cuts. And, I got a good referral. So Chattty Cathy that I am.....I exercised my lengua instead of my cuerpo - but I felt, again, another fine morning in BsAs.
