Some other things catching my eye. I'd hate to have the apartment on the end - don't think there would be a lot of room for entertaining



Have seen a lot of these cool looking trees in South America (Winter has started so, no leaves)



Which have an effective defense against lizards, monkeys and tree climbing kids



And then just some giant trees




A busy street with lots of moto parking



A lot of cars set up for Natural Gas - Natural Gas service stations very busy




Can even find some solitude in the city



It's hilarious watching a show like this with the voices dubbed in Spanish . . . just not the same




Get the odd street performer



One restaurant on a main corner had a spot for musicians - this guy playing jazzy sax, girl sounding like Diana Krall and an old guy singing and playing blues guitar. I thought hanging around here was a great excuse for enjoying some wine or beer . . . or both.



Most restaurants were open over the holidays so, no shortage of food. Eating wasn’t particularly cheap here but, some really good chow . . . particularly meat. I am an unabashed meatatarian and I think herbivores would suffer in most of these South American countries, particularly Argentina.

A really good empanada



Steaks (All outstanding)




Steak and heart of palm salad



Pork




One place had a wood fired barbeque in the window with a bunch of lambs or goats and racks of ribs slowly cooking



A typical bakery



My last night in South America, met up with Cory, Bryce and Dylan for dinner. These guys have all had outstanding adventures.
