Im in Argentina at present and its awesome - your money just lasts forever here, ive been in patagonia but id imagine it will warm a bit here in january otherwise you could still be in Buenos Aires then and itd be warm or head farther north, salta or cordoba maybe.

God Ed - how time flies eh? Just around this time last year we were heading to Dublin for the TP meet up and you brought your delicious cake and your travels hadnt yet started and now you almost through your trip!

How did you find Oz?

SA - have you only been in Argentina or are you heading on through the continent?

ANYWAY - hopefully see you again at Christmas and you can tell us in person all about your travels!

Take care and continue having fun!

Heather

ok guys, well i must apologise this was meant to be a reply to someones question for a suggestion on somewhere warm and cheap and not a boasting session bout me enjoying it here.

Well i am anyhow! Yea heather, it has flown so fast, been in SA since Aug 7th and done mostly south of Chile, Argentina, mainly patagonia and got up here to BA today. Its depressing me though , its been raining the last week or so since Bariloche, so im gona head up to Salta on Tues and catch the train up into Bolivia on Wed hopefully.

Sorry i aint using the photo album on here much so most of my pics are on http://picasaweb.google.com/ejsmyth for thos e of you wanting to see them.

Cheers and see you all soon back in Ireland (hopefully theres sun or i wont be around long)
