We've been planning our journey to Patagonia for months, and it's been quite an ordeal in the last few weeks: Firstly, Tats -- who arrived on the 5th -- is sick with pnuemonia (and FINALLY, after some scary days, is responding to the antibiotics prescribed at the hospital). Secondly, the rains here in BsAs have been torrential and relentless, and we wondered if we could even get out of the city due to flooding. Finally, finding five seats near one another on the same bus was more of a challenge than anticipated. (And actually, we only bought four, beacause we weren't even sure if we would all be going, what with Tats so sick and all.) But if this post is published, that means that Tats is feeling well enough to travel Tuesday, and we are about to head out the door with our bags and our passports and a few extra pesos to the bus terminal in hopes of finding one more seat... and we'll soon be on our way.)
We're hopeful for some internet access while down south, but in case not, stay tuned penguin pictures after the 16th, when we return!
