ARGENTINA. A week of fabulous food, luxurious leather and wonderful wine.
About this blog
Our original plans were for a visit to Portugal. I had even gone so far as to purchase a 2005 copy of Rick Steve's Portugal, and had started researching prices. As the dollar went down and down on the world market, so the price of our trip started going up and up. By late 2004, Portugal has become a very costly proposition. I start looking elsewhere. We could either stay home, visiting somewhere in the USA, or look south to Latin America.
After eliminating Peru, Brasil and Chile, I decide to try for Argentina. Miryam likes the idea. We have read articles about how inexpensive it is, and a friend of Miryam goes there regularly, and loves it. Bryan was game, and Cecilia, Miryam's sister, will join us for the shopping possibilities.
