Looping around the Brazilian side of Iguazu Falls to Argentina (it sounds like the views are totally different depending on what country you are in) we’ll splash around there for a few days before flying down to Buenos Aires. We’ll explore the “Paris of South America” and take a week long Spanish course while we are there (I was fairly fluent at one point, but man I’m rusty). We have a couple contacts down there, one local who really wants take us on a day trip to El Tigre, this is a delta river town that totally transforms as the tide goes in and out.
Once the Spanish is up to snuff and we’ve taken at least one tango lesson, we’ll start to head into Gaucho country and ultimately get down to Patagonia–climbing glaciers, kickin it with penguins and wild horses, and waving at Antarctica–we cannot wait!
Then for my 30th birthday and Mike’s 35th, we are dreaming of renting a house in Mendoza for the wine harvest. We’ll see if we can rally the U.S. crew to fly down for the week to celebrate. A free place to stay, with good friends, and great wine–what’s there to say no to?
