Dude! I finally wrote something

Sunday, 10 May 2009 | Views [638]

So I think everyone would agree that I’m pretty much sucking at this whole blog thing…. Basically, I’ve been really busy… and really sick… all at the same time. Horrible combination. But, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been enjoying my self. We’ve made ... Read more >


Insomnia at 15,000ft

Tuesday, 13 Nov 2007 | Views [1029]

Sleeping on planes seems to be something I am physically incapable of.  At this point, seeing as I had only gotten 10 hours of sleep in the last 3 nights (thanks to a chorus of snoring and 3am poker) I would think I could have slept anywhere. But no, ... Read more >

San Telmo Market

Sunday, 11 Nov 2007 | Views [2733]

Headed to the San Telmo market this afternoon, while trying to avoid the prolific number of dog droppings, I noticed that all the side walks are different.  It appears that each store owner/building owner is responsible for the side walk in front of ... Read more >

Saturday, 10 Nov 2007 | Views [1093]

I was modivatied... I was going to leave Buenos Aires for the first time in almost 2 weeks... visit a new place, see new sights, meet new people...  For my day trip I chose San Antonio de Areco, apparently the town where all the best crafts people ... Read more >

Quit looking at my ass

Thursday, 8 Nov 2007 | Views [754]

Buenos Aires has trained me well.  The vendors in Peru and Bolivia would at least, at times recieve eye contact and perhaps a harsh "no gracias" when accosting me with postcards, gourds, jewerly and a plethora of lama related trinkets.  The ... Read more >

All I want is a bed

Sunday, 4 Nov 2007 | Views [585]

It is 9:20am and for some god aweful reason I am awake and up.  It is the third day in a row that I have gone to bed at 6am or later and woken up at 9:20.  This is not by my choice.  After being thrilled about finishing my spanish course and having ... Read more >

Mullets seem to be making a comeback

Thursday, 1 Nov 2007 | Views [1099]

So, after 2 months of washing my hair with a combinaton campsoap and head n shoulders coupled with massive amounts of dust, it´s in pretty bad shape.  Side-show bob shape.  So, just like my break down with the jeans and the shirts, I broke down.  I´ve ... Read more >

Sleep Deprivation and Ghestapo Spanish

Thursday, 1 Nov 2007 | Views [970]

Dinner at 11:30 at night? That sounds like a fantastic idea... So the schedule is a bit different here.  Since I arrived in Buenos Aires sleep has not been a priority.  It seems breakfast is 9 to 12, lunch… sometime around 2ish, at 5 or 6 a snack, ... Read more >

My own unique smell

Tuesday, 30 Oct 2007 | Views [808]

So I´ve given up... broken down... it all started with the jeans, now I´m buying shirts. It´s just that now I´m in a city, Buenos Aires.  It´s actually quite a nice city and people seem to care about what they look (and smell like) and I´ve found that ... Read more >

Bikes, Wines, and Dozers

Wednesday, 24 Oct 2007 | Views [643]

A wine tour in Mendoza, it congers images of mountains, vineyards... little dusty country roads, maybe a villa or two.  While there were dusty roads, it was due to the asphalt having been ripped up to be replaced.   Not quite as quaint as I had ... Read more >

Horseback Riding Pinball

Monday, 22 Oct 2007 | Views [1923]

Supposedly Salta is breath taking... well, the natural rock and landscapes surrounding Salta. I had read this on multiple websites, and guide books, but due to the fact that I arrived in the dark and had only wandered around the city (whose square ... Read more >

National Food

Monday, 22 Oct 2007 | Views [948]

I have come to the conclusion, that were you to generalize S. American cuisine, it would be fried, accompanied by potatoes, and then something ridiculously sweet.   If it isn´t sprayed with sugar, served with jam, deep fried (all meat is ... Read more >

Tupiza to Salta, Part 3: Bus to... Jujuy?

Thursday, 18 Oct 2007 | Views [3867]

Reaching the La Quiaca bus station I found it necessary to actually acquire Argentinean pesos (so as to be able to buy a bus ticket)  Unfortunately, after asking quite a few people on the street where I could exchange bolivianos, I was actually laughed ... Read more >

Ah, the border... But first we had to get there.  After picking up his surfboard from the trains baggage car (yes, you might wonder... what do you do with a surfboard in Bolivia, a land locked country?  you stand out, that´s what you do.  James and ... Read more >
