Sí, Argentina

March 23, 2011

Yes, we made the jump to Argentina, in January! You certainly didn’t hear about it here first.

In fact, we owe Ecuador several blog posts still: our trips to the coast at Puerto Lopez, to the jungle in the Cuyabeno Reserve, a hike around the rim of Lago Cuicocha, and a wonderful visit with the family of Peter Shear at his permaculture farm in Pucará. We packed as much as we could in our final month in Ecuador, so we still have a number of interesting stories to tell.

We’ll get to those. But we thought it was time to let our readers know (all three of you) that we arrived safely in Argentina, have traveled far south to Patagonia, found a home in the mountains, and have been enjoying the people, the spectacular scenery, and plenty of fishing over the last two months.

We did have a missing camera moment, the battery and its charger actually, but thanks to our friends at L’Auberge Hostel in Quito our camera is functioning again and we will be able to post lots of photos of this place that reminds us quite a bit of Wyoming, Idaho, Oregon, and Wisconsin. There are a few stories to tell!

    Wow! That’s exciting news. Good luck in your new digs. Please let us know what led to your decision. We would love to know what prompted your move and how you arrived at your present location (what town are you nearby?).

    best wishes, Lojo

      Laura, Natalie will have more to say later but, we are in El Bolson which is a small tourist and agricultural community just east of the Andean cordillera, on the southern edge of the province of Rio Negro. We have visited all three national parks that are nearby (less than two hours by bus). It’s a beautiful area. We will post later about how we came to be here.

    What Natalie misses most in our Argentine cabaña: a bathtub.
    What I miss most: a boat. We are surrounded by beautiful mountain lakes.

    Hi Guys!
    It’s fun to catch up with you a bit this way. Conrad has just been accepted (and received a HUGE scholarship) for a traveling high school program called “Think Global School” and his first trimester next year is in Cuenca, Ecuador! So even though we didn’t all get to come and visit you this year, at least he’ll get to go where you’ve been (: We’d love to hear more about what you thought of that corner of Ecuador. It looks like there’s a CS Society there!
    Looking forward to hearing more of your adventures ~
    Hugs to all!
    Karin Heath
