Thinking of Argentina

During the past two week I have had a student in my class who is from Argentina. This has made me think of my visits to Argentina, so I will share a few pictures from my travels tonight.

Ushuaia Argentina - ReflectionsI will start with this picture from Ushuaia which is the southernmost city in the world. My sister and I visited here while on a cruise to Antarctica.

I really like the reflections in this picture.

Great Dane, Large Dog, Buenos Aires, ArgentinaAnother memory from Argentina is this picture of me with a Great Dane.  While I was teaching a course in Buenos Aires the dog’s owner walked by the hotel where we were staying each evening. We had some good conversations with her.

Stalking Horse Bidder - Hostess Brands - Dolly Madison - TwinkiesThis picture reminds me of a wonderful meal we had at the Estancia Santa Susana near Buenos Aires. After getting off of the cruise ship, we visited this ‘ranch’ before heading to the airport.

ribs, sheep, argentina, buenos aires, bbq ribsOne of my most memorable meals in Argentina during my first trip was when my host took me to eat ribs at his favorite restaurant Posta Recoleta. The lamb ribs were absolutely delicious and the meal was a wonderful experience. During my second trip to Argentina he met my sister and I at our hotel and took us to the same place.

Good memories.
