Yea, I can imagine how things are different over there. I remember heading to a gym in Santiago, DR one time and was stunted at the people in there. They made due with what they had, but I truly appreciated our gyms more after that.

Anywho, I must say that I'm jealous! Wish I could go walk along a dirt path by cows and horses. I really need to get out of the city -_-.


I think we're too busy here in the US. Everything is rush, rush, rush. Maybe if we took a more relaxed way of doing things, we wouldn't have all the problems we have here.

While I would always prefer to do my exercise outside, I have to admit I really did love going to the gym in Atlanta. And I never thought I'd hear myself say that.

Yes, it does make me appreciate what we have in the US. But in a way, I appreciate it more because I only have access to it in small doses.

So true, Collette. I felt that so strongly when we went back this past summer. It was tough getting used to the brusqueness and the general feeling that it's more important to be rushing around getting things done than to stop, have a coffee and trade niceties with other people.

Conversely, I've had to readjust on returning to Salta where no one ever rushes for anything.


It's a different world indeed. But it's a world we enjoy living in. - AU
