I've already blogged about our cruise to Antarctica , but as I mentioned there, we visited other interesting places as well. (The picture above is from sailing into Ushuaia, in Tierra del Fuego.)
A few highlights:
It was pleasant sunny summer in Argentina and Buenos Aires was beautiful–a city of trees and sweeping boulevards. One of the largest cities in Latin America and a major port, it's cosmopolitan and multi-ethnic and has been called the Paris of Latin America.
Here is the view from the window of the hotel where we stayed for two nights. We tried the tasting menu in the hotel's excellent restaurant and one course was octopus. I approached it warily, and for the first time I experienced octopus as something that wasn't like chewing on a piece of rubber tire. <G>
