Sorry about that last email of immature mollusc references.

So... what has been happening in my life I hear you ask? (actually, that is probably a rhetorical question as my main email responder is currently my mum... love you mum)

ahem.

I have finished with argentina (in much the same way that fiscal management has finished with argentina - not coming back for a long time) and have headed into Brazil for more exploratory fun.

I already let you know about much of the highlights of Buenos Aires (and i assure you the past tense is not a highlight in spanish) but we had an absolute ball there. Louise picked up the tango so quickly that all these pseudo-lecherous old tango teachers kept calling her the ´beautiful ballerina´ and doing lifts and throws with her.

Excuse me for a second as I just realised the chap in the internet cubicle next to me is cruising for porn. Ahhh Brazil.

Anyway, after Buenos Aires we headed into Uruguay (the country that Australia beat to get into the World Cup - kind of old news now) and saw the fantastic (a little place called Colonia which is a beautiful unesco listed town) and the somewhat crap capital Montevideo (also referred to as Budget Aires). 8 hours is now my record for the least amount of time spent in a capital city in a forreign country.

The last big thing I have done (hang on, the dude is back on the porn again) is going up to Iguazu falls which are a big, big set of waterfalls on the Brazilian / Argentian / Paraguayan border. Lots of water, lots of people, not many wet t-shirts (sorry, that guy just wont stop)

Anyway, have also now got a new set of travelling companions who we are heading into Brazil with. One bloke, who is a bit of a smooth operator, is a hostel owner in New Zealand and his wife (though they are in an open-relationship) is a 6 ft tall German shaved-headed yoga instructor who gets naked in public regularly (long story). Anyway, this guy has a bit of a history of taking advantage of the female guests in his hostel. The amazing thing is, he always makes them pay for the night!!! He has been using some story about them being 'prostitutes' if he doesn´t charge for the night for years now and says it always works. The fine line of genius and madness.

Anyway, going to say hello to my new best friend
