    We’ll be renting an entire apartment in Buenos Aires and splitting four ways, so hopefully I’ll get some good pictures uploaded. Sorry for slacking on that front. Today was another in a long line of 500 km days. Sometimes you just want to eat, have a beer, chat about the day and sleep

    We did this to split up what would have been a close to 525 km ride into Buenos Aires and it’s associated dense traffic.
    We have rented for four nights an entire home in the Palermo district near the heart of the city. The Airbnb host doesn’t want check in until 7pm (whaaaa?) so we are going to chill out here and take our time.
    We are at an old old motel here called Estacion Pardo and used to be known as Casa Bioy, owned for years by the Argentinian author Adolfo Bioy. It’s been renovated a bit but stilll retains old world charm. Great bed! Good shower!
    Last night while eating dinner here, Sam and I performed knotted-hair removal surgery on several local dogs (deeply imbedded thorns and bristles behind their ears) and became immediate friends. While doing so, a tiny kitten (I named Tabby) befriended us and followed us later on a walk around the villa to see a local soccer tournament. There the kitten became popular with all the children.
    The walk back to our hotel was punctuated by the clearest night sky I’ve seen since San Pedro de Atacama Chile. It was spectacular! The Milky Way was brilliant!
    Hopefully the wifi in BA is good and I’ll uploaded Nikon pics.
    For now, some cell pics from last night!

    I was able today to update the firmware on my Nikon B600 so that the link to the Snapbridge app on my iPhone works again!!! It’s been months since it worked. Now pics from the Nikon go direct to my phone and/or the cloud!

    And with that, here are pictures from Ushuaia to now!!

    Do you think you will set any more "volumetric records" once you get back to higher temperatures, or has Sunny's tank expanded to its maximum at this point?

    If only I could keep doing it forever, repetitive events are endearing (except for flats. They can bugger off lol)
