Ah....the warmth begins. I finally arived here in Buenos Aires, Argentina yesterday just after noon. On the bus to downtown I got to see the poverty of the shanty towns (villas miseria) that surround the downtown core. The sad thing is that it is probably as close as Ill get. Well at least untill I learn some Spanish and get a good tan so that I dont stick out so much.

When I got to bed last night it was still 29C and very humid. Just out front of my hostel (http://www.thehostel.net/indexeng.htm) is 20 lanes of downtown traffic. You can barely make it accross the street before the light changes again. The smell of the air (mostly deasel) will be unforgetable. Today I mostly just did some research (lonely planet guide) as to what Im planning to do while Im here in South America. Im planning to head up to Uraguay next to go sit on the beach, get that tan that I so need...well ok want, and do some surfing.
