Happy New Year 2019!!! Hope your New Year is off to a great start.
We were grateful that we could be in Houston for a bit and spend the holidays with family this season, take part in lots of birthday celebrations (about 6 birthday parties) and start our New Year with family and friends.
We are now in Buenos Aires, Argentina for 14 days and enjoying the warm summer temperatures. Sorry for anyone covered in snow and cold temperatures. We are thinking about you. Here is the view of our apartment in Villa Crespo, a very residential neighborhood. The view from our ApartmentDoesn't look much like Paris does it.
Thanks to a friend of a friend, we are continuing our Spanish studies with a private teacher here. If you are coming to Buenos Aires and would like her contact info, let us know. She’s been great!
Cecilia our Spanish teacherWe are still smiling after a two hour private lesson. Cecilia is great! When not studying, We are doing some sightseeing, eating tasty empanadas and Vanessa is enjoying a few milongas. We will soon be treating ourselves to nice restaurant and tasting Argentinian’s well known steaks!
We spent some time walking around in San Telmo, checking out some of the street art and accidently stumbled upon the Mercedes Sosa Museum.
Next week, we are hopping over to Montevideo for a few days to visit some friends that Vanessa has not seen in 10 years.
Then, we’ll be flying into El Calafate (Argentina), bussing it into Punta Arenas (Chile), fly into Puerto Montt (Chile), take the bus through a few smaller towns as we make our way north – Bariloche (Argentina), Frutilla (Chile), Osorno (Chile), etc, until we reach Santiago (stay a week), bus to Mendoza (stay a week), Fly to Iguazu Falls then back to Buenos Aires.
Let us know if you are at the same place at the same time or if you want to meet up!
