Lost in Palermo - Part I

Today, I went to Palermo and did what I do best when I´m there: Getting Lost!

(sí, ya sé que no es muy "Top" de mi parte perderme ahí)
[ PART I ]
FYI, Palermo is a neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It´s really modern, artsy and fancy... And preeeeeeeeety! ♥
Yet, my biologic-GPS doesn´t work there. Seriously, guys.

Even when I don´t always know the names of the streets around me (sometimes not even the the one I´m walking!), I´m pretty good at getting my bearings. It´s instinctive.
I love taking long walks and it´s really uncommon that I recur twice on the same path to get from one place to another. I pretty much zig-zag all over the way, in order to get to know new places, paint new trash cans or wheatpaste in new walls ♥ (and because it´s more fun like this!)

I didn´t get lost while making this drawing. Guess why?
...Yup, that´s not Palermo :/

I manage to do this, pretty much all over my city, and even in most cities I´ve visited (ok, I must say that it IS way easier in NY, where the streets and avenues names are mostly numbered).

But Palermo... oh, Palermo... He messes with my GPS.

I think I must have been a thousand times at cons and exhibitions @ the "Jardín Japonés" (Japanese Garden) (yes, in Palermo) the last decade, and STILL get lost eeeevery single time.

Yay, Fanservice! :D Be polite or no more candies for you! ¬.¬

Then, I went to job interviews around there. Later, I attended for a few months to an animation course in P-land (ok, the bus stop was RIGHT THERE almost at Patagonik Studio´s front door so I didn´t have to walk)

Right after that, a few blocks away, I started to go to work on a daily basis to an office in... yep, still Palermo!. During a year and a half (oh, old PS photo-retouch-slave times!). I got to know the place a little better and discovered that I´ve been there before, for parties, meetings with friends and stuff... Still managed to get lost everytime I could!I´m suspecting that Palermo messes with my Time cognition as well, since this pic is from 2006,
and still I wrote the year wrong back then (!)

I can´t tell how many meetings I had there in you-already-know-where. Dancing classes. Lunchs. Concerts. I´ve even painted a mural this year!.

And... and... I still got lost today! ._____.Uu
This doesn´t happen to me in any other neighborhood!! I have a pretty awesome memory everywhere else! ò3ó

OMG, it´s freakin´ late, need to get some sleep. So.... tururururuuu~~

Daisku, nuestros GPS se complementan! XDD
Yo suelo pensar que me perdí, pero sigo eligiendo el camino correcto y me doy cuenta cuando llego. ...Bueno, en la mayor parte de Capital, al menos XD

En un cine de Palermo? El de cerquita del Alto Palermo? Hasta ahí te sé llegar y no me pierdo tanto... de hecho, ahora me acuerdo que yo iba a un fan club por ahí O_o
(OMG!! por qué Palermo es TAN GRANDE??).
