Andrea: Flashback to yesterday - my leather jacket was supposed to be ready by 10:45am. Our flight to Iguazu was scheduled to leave at 1. EZE Airport is about 40 minutes from the City....so we were on a bit of a time crunch. We packed our backpacks and took a taxi to the leather store by 10:15 (just in case the jacket was ready early). Of course, it wasn't ready yet...but we still had to make it to the post office to send out all of our new stuff. So with our backpacks and packages, we sprinted to the post office (yes, sprinted), only to find a HUGE line. At this point, I started getting nervous...the clock was ticking, and by 10:45, Jose finally made it to the front of the line. Tick Tock, Tick Tock.....as Jose calmly chatted with the post office guy, I started getting really nervous and telling him to hurry up, and of course, was ignored
I wanted to kill him J Apparently the leather store people had said that to get to Iguazu, the only way out is through the OTHER airport (not the one we flew into...). Of course, our paperwork didn't really specify which airport...so we decided to guess.
Luckily, Jose is the luckiest guy...and it all worked out. We made it to the airport with plenty of time, and hopped on our plane to Iguazu. On the way, we met a couple of PhD candidates from Carnegie Melon who were super friendly, and the guy was all about tango dancing. Next time we're in Buenos Aires, we'll definitely have to check out a Milonga that he talked about, although we did see plenty of tango dancers in the streets!
When we arrived in Iguazu, the change of climate was definitely noticeable
After a few beers, some dinner, and a bunch of dulce de leche, we settled off to bed - early rise for the tour of Iguazu!! Good night everyone!!
