La Apuesta is an online web series staring my Argentine sister Eugenia. Readers of my old blog will remember how dear Eugenia is to me and that she played an important role in my Buenos Aires journey. Eugenia makes her first appearance in next week’s manuscript leak. I love this girl! She is such a phenomenal actress! Eugenia is the beautiful waitress that first appears in video one. You should be able to recognize her in the second video.

It’s so nice to hear the Argentine accent in these videos (I love the way they sing when they speak); and see the familiar sites and sounds— especially the bravado Argentine men possess. I miss Quilmes Cerveza (beer) it’s one of my favorite beers. I’m sad to say I can’t understand a lot of what they’re saying anymore; I still can’t believe at one point I understood almost everything that was said to me in Spanish while living in Buenos Aires. But if you don’t use it— you lose it. :0(
