Distant view of Perito Moreno Glacier in Calafate.
Perito Moreno Glacier
Our first close up view of the glacier.
Lake by Glacier
This lake feels super calm and relaxing.
Perito Moreno Glacier
This glacier reaches 70 meters above water level (average of 60 meters) and stretches 120 meters below.
Glacier center view
Have to look at this beauty from every angle.
There are constantly loud cracking sounds emitted from the glacier. Big chunks of ice falling off here and there.
Panoramic Glacier View
Photo credit goes to Juliana Alzate with whom we visited the glacier with.
We worked in this house for 2 weeks through WorkAway. Located in Tigre, Buenos Aires.
Before and after shots of my painting skills. Ok, the dark green wall was a collaboration with Anna, another worker.
Huge Back Yard
The back yard of the employer on a rainy day. Wanna use the swing? The house almost got flooded one day due to the wind.
All these are picked from the back yard. So many free nuts were consumed during our time here. The guys were in charge of picking them up.
Since we are on an island, we buy our fresh produce from a market boat that stops by once a day. The neighbor has a store, but only sells dry goods.
Sunset at Tigre
Brilliant red sunset. The sunsets here are always beautiful.
Yes, I like sunsets....
La Boca, Buenos Aires
Know for their colorful buildings and murals. Don't come here at 9am because the atmosphere is dead. No shops open yet.
Plaza de Mayo, Buenos Aires
One day I caught awesome street performers who were dancing a traditional routine here.
Love the various architecture found all over Buenos Aires. This not-church looking cathedral is found at Plaza de Mayo. Still wondering why some buildings needed the barracade in front.
Matambre Arrollado Especial
Apparently traditional food. Tasted good. The confusing part is that our two menus had few prices switched around. Is this 140 pesos or 220? Big difference.
The big cemetery holds many impressive tombs.
Flower art in a park that reminded me of a secret, governmental death ray.
Huge Japanese garden. Picture taken outside because I didn't redeem the cultural inaccuracy worth the entry fee.
Barricade is being set up all over Plaza de Mayo. Many police stationed here that day. We saw parts of a protest before we decided to scram before the situation potentially gets ugly.
Three countries are visible in this picture. Bottom trees belong to Argentina, the right bushes to Brazil, and Paraguay is furthest in the back. My cell provider can't tell which country I'm in and decided to welcome me to all three. I'm in Argentina.
One of the many coati found at Iguazu Falls.
Bird at the Falls
Twice this bird species hovered around us while eating. Took us a while to find a quiet spot away from all the other tourists. Because of these birds, people congregated and I would have photographers in my face trying to get their best shot.... I'm trying to eat here.....
Another set of waterfalls found on the Argentinian side.
Trying to take a picture of devils throat (Iguazu falls), but with all the wind and water splashing at my glasses, I couldn't see what I was doing. Here is the result.
What the picture should look like without my finger.
This fall is the largest waterfall system in the world, stretching in Argentina and Brazil.
Crazy to see the waterfall stretch all the way around and knowing there is more out of sight.
Not only does the falls stretch, there are multiple, beautiful layers.
