No Norwegian julegran as far as the eye can see.

So it wasn't just laziness and convenience that made me book a flight to Europe on January 15th, and hence stay down in Argentina over Christmas and New Year, instead of going back to Norway to celebrate with family and friends. I had actually arranged to meet and go on holiday to Punta del Este with a good friend down here, you may very well recognize her from the photos in the next blog entry. And then I also ended up meeting another friend (her father and younger sister lives in Buenos Aires), don't be surprised if you recognize her as well.
Of course I have met many fantastic people on this trip; boys and girls, men and women, backpackers and locals. Most of the last month of my trip before I go to Europe, I have however spent with two of the people who have meant the most to me down here in Latin America
As I just mentioned, I spent Christmas in Argentina, mainly in and around Buenos Aires. But I also plan to spend another week in fashionable Punta del Este, Uruguay, as you will see in the next blog entry, before I head for Europe. So it was another not so ordinary Christmas for me (I'm getting used to them), without family, snow, freezing temperatures and tons of Christmas packets under a Norwegian julegran. I did however have excellent food and drinks, as well as very good friends to share it with. Entonces, no complaints.
