We just completed another uber-burly travel mission and have arrived in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
To get here we traveled for 6 days flying from Cozumel to Atlanta and then Atlanta to Santiago. We then drove across South America.
It was a rough one and pretty much taxed the whole family.
We managed to accomplish our primary goal of going to Mexico, which was to return with a grip of boutique sipping Tequila. I don’t like to brag, but I usually do. We’re Tequila experts, and happen to be graduates of Tequila school in the town of Tequila, Mexico, (remember here).
Our stock is pretty good now, (Thanks Pa and Indra!). If you ever see any of these, buy them.
This line-up is no F’in joke.

On our way across the Andes we stopped off at Mendoza for a night. It was good to hang at one of our favorite hostels in South America, the Banana.
While we were there we also took the opportunity to stop off at The Vines Of Mendoza. Our good friend Ezequiel helped us pick out 4 cases of top flight wine and gave us the total hook up. What a guy!
You may be wondering, why all the alcohol? Tequila and wine in quantity, por que? The main reason is that we’re heading to Brazil for 6 months. Good wine will be impossible to get there, as will Tequila. So we’re going in prepared! This ain’t our first rodeo.

Below, Soleil showing off her face wounds after taking a climbing fall. Gonna have to start making this kid wear her helmet in every day life.
OH YES I CAN, AND I WILL! Especially when she’s dating age.

Taking a little roadside break on the long driving days across Argentina.
When we finally arrived in B.A. everyone was totally wiped. In addition to the trip, we also had all the time zones to deal with.
We’re all settled in now. We’ve got a sick apartment in the San Telmo barrio of Buenos Aires. We’re planning on spending a month here. My Mom arrives on Sunday and there is plenty of talk about art museums, coffee shops, and Tango dancing. I guess so.
After that, it’s on to Brazil for the rest of the year. Can’t wait to see the surf up north.
