My goodness, horses are amazing. They're big, strong, majestic, smart, smelly, naughty, cute, lovely, stubborn, wild, tame... lots of contradictions, just like people. I've been on the ranch 3 days now, had 2 riding lessons, and will have a practise ... Read more >

Oh my feet hurt

ARGENTINA | Monday, 10 Mar 2008 | Views [689]

Because of the rain and crappy planning yesterday, didn't get to go to Recoleta Cemetery as I had hoped to. Got home about 5 last night, and while leaving the party at Roxy was just at it's peak. BA-ers, "Puertinos", go hard and they go late.... Read more >

ARGENTINA | Thursday, 6 Mar 2008 | Views [908]

South Americans sure do have a funny way of naming their cities and streets: Good Airs, River of January (Rio de Janeiro), Beautiful (Bonito), Big Far (Campo Grande), etc. I've been a bit lazy with my posting (apologies), and that's because there ... Read more >

The Pantanal wetlands

BRAZIL | Saturday, 23 Feb 2008 | Views [755]

It was pretty amazing. My first mistake was going with the wrong tour group. Bunch of lying, scheming devils conned me with offers of all sorts of luxuries, discounts and services, but of course failed to deliver. Note to all potential Pantanal visitors:... Read more >
