The Friday night party was on a paddle boat. I should have taken a picture of the wheel before it got dark and I got drunk.

The boat!

Recoletta Cemetery, Buenos Aires

Evita's tomb

This is a really, really cool cemetery. Except the second time we went, we smelled someone dead. That was possibly the most disgusting thing I've ever smelled.

Buenos Aires

This is obviously a church, but I can't remember where or which one! But it's pretty, no?

Three Borders

This is an area where you can stand in Argentina, and see Paraguay (here)...
and Brazil (here).
And me. Apparently, in Brazil and Paraguay they have similar little monuments set up.

Iguazu Falls

Iguazu Falls is right on the border of Brazil and Argentina. It's really beautiful, but I have a feeling the pictures are self-explanatory, so just take a look. I was unable to get too close to the really big falls as the height was too much for me to take, so I'll have to wait for Michael's pictures to see what it actually looked like!

See the rainbow?

This is me, in the shade.

I think my camera got a little wet from the waterfall spray here.
Me again. It was hot. I look hot and tired.

Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay

View of Colonia from a rooftop at sunset.
These are old ruins of a Franciscan monastery, and a lighthouse was built around them. It was night when we visited, so my photos didn't turn out great.

I liked this weather vane.

Rio de la Plata, in between Uruguay and Argentina. We took the ferry from Buenos Aires to Colonia.


A pretty mosaic.

Colonia was built as a fort by Portuguese settlers. This is part of the fort.

The lighthouse.

A corner shop.
This was on the wall of an abandoned building.
Colonia is well-known for having old cars all over the place. This one had a tree growing out of it.

I liked the way the laundry looked on the line.
More old cars!

The river by day. It's very muddy, and the color looks like chocolate milk.
