Hola Everybody!!! Oilers!!!!!!

We are back in Argentina after our 4 days in Uruguay, here in the city of San Iguaciu, home of the world famous Iguaciu Falls. We have had a busy past few days. In Montevideo Uruguay, we went on a city tour and to a dinner show with traditional dancing and music. We then caught the bus for the trip to Salto Uruguay. Our hotel in Salto was quite interesting, two of the people travelling with us had a huge cockroach in their room. I caught it in a cup and brought it out to where we were having our group meeting and named it after our tour leader. We visited the hot springs in Salto which was nice. We ate in a restaurant near the hot springs which told us that they had no chicken or fries and yet all of the locals seemed to be able to order them. It took 2 hours to get hamburgers, needless to say we were not impressed. From Salto we took taxis across the Uruguay River back into Argentina where we caught a night bus to the town of San Iguacio. These were by far the nicest buses I have ever seen with hot food service, champagne, wine, and seats that reclined all the way back and pads under your legs so that we could sleep. I though it was going to be great until the person in front of my reclined her seat all the way back, pinning my legs against my seat. In San Iguacio we visited old Jesuit Ruins which were really cool. San Iguacio is more of a jungle type environment in comparison to the South which is much more open plaines. We took a short drive yesterday to San Iguaciu with some crazy driver who drove like the people on Highway 63 to Fort Mac passing Fuel trucks on uphills with on coming traffic. Today we are going out to the jungle to repel down a water fall and to go on ziplines between the trees. I can wait.

I am getting my pictures put onto CD as we speak, so next stop I hope to post some pictures for you all. Our group is lots of fun and we are having a great time.
