|Chris enjoying his time in Tigre|
First and foremost, my brother Chris has been here all week in a semi-surprise, last minute vacation. He bought his ticket two weeks ago and arrived last Tuesday, and we've been on the go ever since. I will write more about our little adventures while he has been here, but it's worth mentioning that even with the last minute nature of his plane ticket, he got the best price out of anyone that has come so far. Plane ticket prices go way down during the "winter" since it's so "cold" here and apparently no one wants to visit. I think Chris would agree that our high-50s, low-60s sunny "winter" days are preferable to the insane 100-degree days that he's been missing in Virginia. Word to the wise, June is a great time to visit!
|Newly engaged, hooray!|
|More than he bargained for...|
On the home front, Jon and I have booked our next trip within Argentina, we're headed to Mendoza with our friends Shankar and Fernanda. While America has the 4th of July off, we have to wait until the 9th of July to celebrate Argentinean independence day, so we are taking advantage of that holiday weekend to go on vacation and tour some wine bodegas. Mendoza is home to the delicious Malbec that has become so popular in the US, and we are planning on tasting our way through the best of them. I'll post details on this trip along with recommendations of our friends, and our take on Mendoza after our trip (which is the second weekend of July). We are looking forward to adding another Argentina destination to our list and Shankar and Fernanda will be great fun to travel with.
The last bit of news is that it's my dad's birthday! Happy Birthday Dad! I wish we were able to celebrate with you in person.
That is our news update, and hopefully the end to my bloging hiatus. Nos vemos pronto!
