South America 15/3 - 19/3
Hola chicas y chicos,
disfurtado la vida de Argentine!
We landed friday morning after 20 hours of flying and 6 hours of eating, and card playing in Atlanta airport. Good times though, as we had three seats to share on both flights - pretty lucky as the flights were very well booked.
Of course we made it out to enjoy the nightlife in BA friday with Begoña, Jonathan, and some very nice chicas de Argentine y Colombia. First, we enjoyed some very nice food at a very fancy (but cheap compared to Denmark) restaurant, and later we went clubbing at a disco called Congo. It got pretty late and I think we made it back to our hostel (Recoleta Hostel) around 3 in the morning.
Saturday; the big wedding day of Luciana y Hernán. Such a beautiful ceremony and the greatest setting for the party afterwards. It was outdoors most of the time on a beautiful farm with white chairs, sofas and tables on a great open field near the casa where there was dancing. The festivities started around noon and went on to after midnight at which point we drove the 40 kilometres back to BA and partied on (at Congo again) until around 6 ...
Very good times!
Slept most of today and now hoping that we will be arranging the remainder of our trip soon :)
Thinking it will be Tierra del Fuego and southern Patagonia after Buenos Aires and then up around Cordoba and Iguazu waterfalls, before heading for either Rio de Janero or Santiago... :) great planning right
I have to get going now, but will of course get back to you all soon (for those who do not wish to be excessively spammed on updates from Argentina ..too bad :)

Place de la Republica at Avenue 9 de Julio (think it said in some guide book that it was the broadest main-street in the world... in any case, its pretty big)
