Thank You. it takes a great deal of courage and strength to be a caregiver. May you do well in caring for your wife. To me there is no greater calling in a marriage than taking care of your loved one to the best of your ability. (of course, none of us do it perfectly and without mistakes, we are human.)

Proud of you!

More Buenos Aires!

If you like being in cities, Buenos Aires is Great!



Being back in Buenos Aires is the final stop on my time in South America. Sort of strange as I get sorted out with shipping, cleaning the bike, and getting ready to move on to New Zealand. It is bitter sweet, as I have come to really like my time here. I will miss using my small amount of spanish to communicate, and many other parts of the culture here to numerous to list.

SlowPhil and his Wife Jan returned back after spending a month together "Adventure Bussing" around Argentina and Uruguay. So what are we to do.... Invite people out to have a big dinner! We also added Chris from the UK that just spent 2 months riding his bike from Colombia to Argentina, and Ma Jo from Corrientes, Argentina who is staying in our apartment building. We had a great evening out! Go home at 4 Am



Here we are getting down to Jan's Height!



Then a great dinner!



Left a little wine bottle to remember the evening!



The culture of Argentina is a late night culture. We did not eat until 10PM, then out to find some music.....



Then a great Bar with fantastic music....



Claudio having a bit too much fun.



Then a Bachlorette party in full swing on the street.



As we stayed out late ..... Claudio talking to a new friend.



Nati giving Yoda a kiss



Next day took a tour bus around the city to get a little bit better understanding of different neighborhoods!





Plug headset into the right place.



Was worth getting a view of the city and learning some history!





A stop at the Boca Junior Stadium. Futball is huge here.



Then a look are the area. La Boca is a cool place to have a look around.











Taking a turn at Tango










And then some professional dancer.







Very Sexy dance



Then some special forces motorcycle police roll by.



Meanwhile back near our apartment, the graffiti artist at work.

If you're going to become a Tango dancer, Mark, you're gonna have to get in shape!

Hope NZ women will treat you that well, as there is nothing like the Latin spirit which by now you must be fully accustomed with.
