Today is my last day in Argentina. It has been a really great experience so far. I am thinking back to the short ten days I've been here and all the amazing things I've gotten to see and the amazing people I've met.
So, what have a discovered about Argentina that I can share more of?...
Even the tourists in Bariloche speak Spanish
Leather doesn't only come from cows it also comes from capybaras
The latest exchange rate from dollars to pesos is about 1:4
I've learned more about mate than I ever knew before
Venison pate is really good
Walking into a restaurant with half a goat roasting at an open fire is normal
Fresh squeezed orange juice is served at every restaurant
The people I've met in Argentina have a good sense of humor
Volcano ash gets into every nook and cranny
The Black-faced Ibis is a pretty bird
If roosters are to alarm clocks then parrots are too
I must learn more about the famous gaucho Martín Fierro
Oh yeah, people clap when the plane lands. I like that!
That's all for now folks! I will post more about my next adventure when I arrive in Peru! I travel to Peru tomorrow and stay until the 4th. Then back home to Seatte!
