Buenos Aires, Argentina

I arrived in Buenos Aires on Wednesday afternoon after being in Santiago, Chile for 3 weeks. It was an amazing time spent hanging with my mom and helping her also discover more of Chile. I'm glad we both go to find new places together. But now I'm in BsAs, Argentina and I cannot explain how happy i am to be here. I've been wanting to visit Argentina since I was a teenager. We used to have cable television and along with the service came FOX SPORTS AMERICAS and I would sit and watch Argentine soccer any chance I got. Now I'm here walking around, snapping pictures and taking in this amazing city. These are photos from Thursday.

Los Lagos, Chile

Los Lagos, Chile has to be one of the most beautiful areas I've ever visited. Right now Puerto Montt is home base and we take little day trips to surrounding locations. I've learned that there's a bus heading to almost every destination in this area so there really isn't a need for any tour guides. Unfortunately we've learned this after using the tour guides. You live and you learn. The bus drivers here seem to have found a mega mix track of all these songs that have the same time signature and they mix these songs in with the same drumbeat. I loved it the track after the first listen... but it lost it's lustre after the 50th play.
Here are some photos:
