Waterfalls, ruins, and a border shakedown

Wonderful sightseeing so far in Argentina and Paraguay. Iguazu Falls are as impressive as advertised. Winter temps are very pleasant after the furnace of Tucson summer. Very nice Jesuit Ruins in San Ignacio, Argentina and Trinidad, Paraguay. On the bus trip over to Paraguay they neglect to tell you that you need a stamp if you aren't Paraguyan, of course on the way back they can fix things for a little US cash :-) All part of the experience! Many nice people along the way. Patricia had a nice motorscooter ride from a woman in Paraguay looking for a hotel for us :-)

A trip south first

It's been a busy month already with Sol's wedding in San Diego last weekend and Patricia's conference in LA this week. Sunday we're headed south for a few weeks of sightseeing and visiting family in Argentina and Paraguay. Back in early August, and it will be time to pack up and ship off the Surly's to Boston right away.

Thinking about getting ready

We met with Ignacio and Daniela last night to discuss their trip from New York up to Canada and back. Not much of our route will be the same, but lots of good info about the Route Verte in Canada and the types of things we might see
