Ok so we have not been as religious with this as we should have been but the last couple of days have been a wee bit hectic for us.
Right heres the run down. The original plan was to leave wednesday or thursday but due to a number of reasons we ended up staying until sunday morning. Rio turned out to be way better than we initailly thought and have to say we were sad leaving, well i was anyway, Ill have to double check with T! What did we do there?
Did the whole city tour, christ the redeemer, sugar loaf, the favelas, chilled on copacabana, parties on the streets in Lapa and went to the ultimate Flamingos game on Saturday night. These people are absolutely crazy....the passion was flowing out of their vains. We bought ourselves some fake hjerseys and screamed and shouted with the best ofthem. The locals loved us! Was a bit unfortunate that they lost and the brazilians also turn their love of theire team to hatred when things are not going their way so we were a bit worried about possible riots but we all made it back to the hostel and headed out again. Basically it was T and my third going away party. This time we had to leave! Rio was all about the partying, there is no point denying it. Most nights we slept a maximum of about 4 hours but still got up the next day bright and early and did it all over again.
Sunday morning bright and early we headed off with two irish guys that we picked up along the way and got the 22 hour bus to Iguazu Falls. Bus on the brazilian side was not great but we found other things to make sure that we slept i.e. alcohol. Again no point denying it, we needed a little help.
We made it to Iguazu in one piece and we were all still talking so thats a good sign. Saw the falls from the brazilian side that day, stayed the night in Foz de Iguazu and packed up our stuff and headed to the argentinian side the next day. Has to be said, the place is absolutely breath taking and something you will never forget. The argentinian side for us was far better but both are beautiful. We went stragiht from the park to our next bus journey....17 hours this time but the bus was far superio. Full blown beds, three meals and unlimited drinks, both alcoholic and non.
Got to Buenos Aires at about 11 on wednesday morning and headed stragiht for the Mill house hostel.. We had heard stories about the place and it doesnt fail to meet expectations. Its huge...holds about 150 people at full capacity and holds its own parties. The night life here doesnt get going until about 2 or 3 in the morning which seems to be putting a stop to our original plans of hnaging about in BA for a while to recharge the batteries. How bad though....as they say...when in roam!!!
Thats about it for now, sorry but its brief. There will be more, when there is more to tell. Photos will follow as soon as we can find a computer faster enough to handle it. High speed connections dont appear to have reached south amercia yet.
Love to everyone at home.
Eivxxx and T of course!!!! xxx
