Well As my time in uruguay winds down (Its had to belive ive been here for 2 months already)

I will tell about the 15th b-day party, As you may have notice im losing my lust for updating this thing, and my writting skills are declining, none the less im putting in as much effort as i can while its 40 degrees outside and im killing sometime.

So A 15th B-day party for a young girl in latin america really is A wedding without a groom.

What does a 15 year old boy get in latin america you ask? A Hand shake, Lifes hard get used to it. :P

Everyone arrives before her, and then she enters much like a bride, all in white, and everyone goes nuts, then Every man in her life steps in and has a dance with her, and then some of her friends etc...

Then its sorta just a massive party lots of music, none stop dancing, From what i gathered for The family there was really good steak and expensive jonnie walker red label scotch.
For the Friends theres like fries chips ice cream snack food...

They had hired a profesional DJ Singers, A camera crew and a profesional photographer, Im not expect but i figure its a fairly expensive lil event.


The party Went on until about 8 am,
The amazing part about all this is The waiters served beer to the obviously underaged kids no problem, The parents didnt seem to care that there kids were drinking (in monderation) And the fact that everyones parents were ok with 15 year old kids partying until 8 am in the morning. Guess its something ill never understand growing up in the prudy north american culture.

Having latin family.
Is Like always traveling with a entourage of pimps, Im not sure how it works here but it seems like if your single, Everyones trying to hook you up, I got 40 year old aunts and uncles, All trying to hook me up with Any girl that crosses there eyes, Theyll go right up and be like hey i have a canadian cousin he likes you, without ever consulting me.
So the only problem with this at the moment is this town anyone my age has left for greener pastures which leaves a big age gap theres virtually no single people between
20-30 years old.

So thats my fast lil update about the B-day party.

If you noticed the date tonight is new years eve, Unfortuantly, or maybe fortunatly?? its not looking like much is going on, The cousins i thought were gonna be here have left for the resort coastal town of punta del este along with anyone who has the money to take off and celebrate on the beach.

Ive more or less made the judgment call to enjoy Christmas and and the 15th B-day party with my family And have a relaxed new years, i figure ive had my far share of crazy nights.

Beyond that Im in the proccess of figuring out how to go from paysandu to colon (argentina) and then to santa fe as ive already been to colon if possible id like to head directly to a new town.
From there heres my argentina Agenda for the moment Things CAn and usually do Change

Santa Fe- Because its the only town from colon that has a conection heading to posadas
Posadas - On the way to iguazu
Foz de Iguazu- I think this explains itself
Posadas- To transferbusses i think
Salta- Suposed to be a really cool town in northern argentina
Tucuman- To break up the massivly long bus rides this massive country has instore for me
Cordoba- Suposed to be a really nice city
Mendoza- Once again suposed to be a nice city also my last stop before chile

Thats my planed stops for argentina for the moment, guess well see how it all goes.
