Elections recently passed in Buenos Aires and of course I didn’t vote. It’s just like in the States except I have an excuse: here I can’t. The biggest difference was that I really have no idea what’s at stake in the politics here and it’s not like the advertisements or what anyone talked about highlighted the differences between the candidates. In face, I wasn’t privy to any cool political conversations. People I hang out with apparently don’t like to chat about politics.
This doesn’t mean I’m not interested in US politics. On the contrary, I follow politics a lot, listening to a ton of NPR podcasts and news. Well, recently there’s a lot of talk about the idea of “looking presidential.”
