Last Tango in Argentina

Now that I’ve been back home for a few weeks, it’s past time to wrap up the South American adventure in pictures. What did I accomplish with this solitary 24 day sojourn? Here’s the short list:

-I doubled my Spanish vocabulary which now rivals that of a clever Myna Bird.

-Confirmed that water really does swirl down the drain in the opposite direction south of the Equator.

-Discovered that Latins and Europeans work less than that we do. As a result most people walk around with less money and less stuff, but they have more family and friend time and less stress- a reasonable trade-off in my opinion.

-Gazed at a waterfall that makes Niagara look like the splash pad at Curtis Hixon Park and a desert mountains cape that could have been the setting of “The Martian”.

-Was reminded that I have a wonderful wife and a wonderful life here in Tampa Bay that makes coming home the best part of every trip.

Now the sights and sounds of Argentina. (Imagine the sounds)
