Little Europe

A travel blog entry by pinklady27


... pay in euros! The hotel manager wondered why we had come to South America though as Europe has trains and buildings that are a lot older. We didn't tell him that sometimes we wondered that ourselves, but overall have enjoyed this leg. John has been teasing Rhianwyn as although her Spanish has improved it is still basic, not knowing "Can I?" Or "May I?" She has been using "Is it possible?" Every other sentence. . . .

The next day ...

I got some good photos. ...

A travel blog entry by oconnorskd


... and packed for the next morning. One thing we noticed in Uruguay was how obsessed everyone seemed to be with drinking Mate-we knew it was a sort of ritual in Argentina but it was even more so here! People seem to have a flask of hot water and a mate cup full of the leaves and straw permanently attached to themselves from women to men to the elderly! Even workmen carried them with them! And there were specialist shops selling expensive leather covered flasks, cups and carry ...
