I´m using Tinder. There. I said it.
I'm not proud of it - in fact I kind of hated it in Los Angeles. But I was convinced to dust off my account because it provides a rare chance to meet locals while traveling. I’d be lying if I said I wasn't hoping to find some magical fling, but the truth is I mostly use it because I want to practice my Spanish.
Patrick and I both spent our last nights in Argentina on Tinder “dates.” Pri could barely say “hello” in English, and she spoke Spanish quickly and with such a thick Argentine accent (for example, pollo becomes “posho” instead of “poyo”) that I was only able to understand about half of what she said. But it was enough. We had a great time together, and I wasn’t thrilled to be leaving the next morning.
