Dec 07, 2007 11:00 PMi cant believe its nearly over
.. this is the first entry i have had time to make since we left new zealand in august 2007 .. so there will be some back tracking at some stage.
nell and i have arrived in buenos aires almost true to the itinerary that we set out. what we have realised is that the flights we booked through south america were a great way to get places fast but they are not flexible enough.
we really didnt give ourselves enough time in most places.
except the big cities. i am totally over the large south american cities. in fact, any city.
we left mendoza this morning after nearly 2 weeks and already i want to go back !
