    I just got back this afternoon! Heck of trip. I went to Buenos Aires, Tigre, Iguazu, Colonia Del Sacremento, Montevideo, and Punta Del Este.

    That's great - you will have to tell us more! I thought we hadn't heard from you for awhile. Glad it was for a benign reason.

    Thanks so much for sharing the pictures! They are incredible! Tell us more! I can't remember--did you travel solo? Did you meet interesting people?

    Yes, it was solo travel. Very solo. Not many English speakers in Argentina. I met one gal from California and an Israeli along the way, so we hung out. But other than that I was on my own because of the language barrier --- which was even bigger in Uruguay. Very few people speak any English in Uruguay. I went on a few tours -- one of which was 50+ people. I was the only English speaker. I met zero Americans in Uruguay and I did not overhear or see any.

    But I loved Uruguay! Buenos Aires was really fun. Iguazu was totally amazing! But Uruguay was my jam! Loved it.

    National dish of Uruguay, called the Chivito (I think this means little goat).
