Default Mid-week Wednesday

Good morning. Another suny day here in Buenos Aires. Temperatures here are beginning to moderate as they head into fall. Daytime highs are now in the low 80’s as compared to low 90’s. Have not seen any rain and there is none in the forecast. Yesterday we visited the Japanese Garden and explored more streets while walking 6+ km’s. When walking we have to constantly look down as the sidewalks are in terrible shape. Many seniors must take falls tripping over uneven tiles, missing tiles and incomplete repairs. Virtually every block has a cafe and most are busy at all times of the day. If anything the Argentine people take time for themselves by sitting with a latte, pastry and their newspaper. Even with very high inflation this daily routine has not been passed up. Enjoy your day everyone!

Good morning Canuckity and mates to follow. I feel like I'm getting an education in traveling South America from following your posts!

My countdown is down to 4 days, 3 before I leave! I am packed and ready, just need to pack up dog and cat food, bowls and beds the last morning before I deliver them to the sitter.

Today is Chair Yoga day, followed by some errands and probably dog walking. Still trying to work off the pain from my pinched sciatic nerve. The more I move, the better it feels!

Good morning. Have been to the Salvation Army to drop off 9 bags of which 8 had books. I decided a few weeks ago to get rid of most of my books as I just have way too many. Yesterday I cleared 4 shelves with taking the books off and putting them in the bags. it looks so much better. Today I don't have any more plans.

Canuckity, I am enjoying reading of your adventures. How much longer will you be there?

All have a great day.

Good morning Mates


Keith, I am also enjoying reading about your travels.


Donna, you must be excited to be so close to your cruise. I hope that you have a great one.


Nancy, that downsizing with your books makes sense because most of us accumulate too much stuff as the years go by.


Have a nice day, folks.

We are in Buenos Aires until March 20th. Then we fly to Iguazu to see the Iguazu falls which is the largest waterfall system in the world. We go back to BA on the 24th then leave for home on the 26th. Hopefully then winter will be over.

Manny said "Nancy, that downsizing with your books makes sense because most of us accumulate too much stuff as the years go by." I just wish i could get my husband to get rid of things.
