So this is it, the last entry for this blog.  I flew into Philadelphia this morning (from Buenos Aires, with a layover in DC) and my family (Mom, Dad, and Natalie) met me at the airport and we drove to Cherry Hill.  Luckily, they brought a jacket, as I was wearing jeans and a t-shirt and it was quite cold.  Quite different from the Buenos Aires/Montevideo/Rio de Janeiro weather I'd experienced the past few weeks.  I spent the afternoon and evening with them and the rest of my family (grandparents, aunt, uncle, cousins), which was great.

It was an amazing trip to South America, both lots of fun and a great learning experience.  I was able to see and do so much, but at the same time was able to be down there long enough to feel less like a tourist and more like a resident almost.  But, all good things come to an end, and it's great to be back home now.  Of course, I also realized how much more there is to see down there (not to mention other parts of the world), so we'll see what happens in the future...

Overall, I was down there for more than five and a half months.  If I'm not mistaken, I spent 92 nights in Argentina, 23 nights in Peru, 21 nights in Bolivia, 15 nights in Brazil, 10 nights in Chile, and 9 nights in Uruguay (and of course 2 nights flying in between North and South America).

I'm attaching here some pictures from my last week in South America.  I'm also going to soon put up online all of my pictures from South America (I think there will be a lot...).  If you're interested in taking a look at them, send me an email and I'll send you the links.

Not sure right now what exactly lies ahead for me, but now that I'm back in the States, I hope to see or hear from many of you soon (by the way, my cell phone number is still the same as it was before I left).  Thanks for reading the blog and for the comments and emails while I was away.  Hasta luego,
Alex
