Hi, I am new to this site. I am from the US. Minnesota is my home state. I came to BA over a year ago because of a job opportunity and I am still working there although I am not very excited about it anymore. I am supposed to stay here until March of 2012 and I feel like I am just doing my time until it is over. I didn't speak any Spanish before I came here and my job is all in English so although I have learned I still don't really talk to anyone in Spanish. I have made some friends at work and have a roommate from Cordoba but I have not made any good connections with people who I can share with or explore the city with. I am 41 and everyone I know is younger than me and seems to enjoy very different things like night clubs whereas I would rather sit in a pub and talk or go to a play. Can anyone give me advice of how I can make connections and maybe actually enjoy the remaining time I spend here in BA?
