The great adventure begins. On the way to Antarctica (and trying to type on a Spanish keyboard).

The plane ride was great, once Wendy (my daughter) and I stopped giggling at the seats in business class. Thank you frequent flyer miles.

The hotel is much more (As Wendy says ¨frufru¨ then the two of us are used to, but we could try to get used to it.

Today was explore Buenos Aires. Lots of images in the Cementerio de la Recoleta. Stopped dead in front of an amazing painting in the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes to show Wendy an example of Rembrant lighting, and then looked at the name of the artist and realized I was showing her a REAL example of Rembrant lighting! (and later, Monet, and Renoir, and Picasso, and Van Gogh....)

Took in the Floralis Generica (metal flower structure). Had supper and are about to head out and explore the wonders of BA ice cream.

We have internet access through the business center computers at the hotel, so I´ll try and add something until we head for Ushuaia.
