I made it to Argentina in one piece although getting out of Buenos Aires airport was a somewhat nerve wracking introduction to the country – meleeous mayhem doesn’t come close to describing it, but I finally found the driver due to pick me up from the airport … so glad I organised that!

I have to admit I was so scared to explore BA after all the warning-stories of crime that I barely ventured out from the hotel until I met the group in the evening. I did however make it as far as Casa Rosada the Parliament Building (also where Evita was film).

I seriously regret not exploring BA more, it’s got so many interesting places ~ next time, Buenos Aires, next time, now that I’m no longer scared.

Goodbye America

It’s the end if my big US adventure Boston > Maine > New Hampshire > DC > Virginia > Boston. It’s been a brilliant two weeks, I’ve loved it all. Even the 12hr drives, they were all part of a great holiday. I’ve loved spending time with my brother and Melissa.

But now I’m being driven to the airport and tears are welling up. The sun is setting over Boston and on my big US Adventure. We all vow to see each other again soon. And then the tears flow.
