Argentina

My first visit to Argentina a few weeks ago was a dream come true! Who wouldn't fall in love with this country and these sweet people? We spent time in Buenos Aires and also just outside of Cordoba. In BA we did lots of site seeing, shopping (got some cute boots and a jacket :) and ate at some really good restaurants (I so miss Ramone-one of our waiters).
Cordoba was a lot more laid back. We stayed in a gorgeous lodge, went horse back riding and explored the grounds around the lodge. Senor Chevez, a butler at the lodge, was so very kind and patient with us. He even helped us learn a bit of Spanish.
We also got to go out in the field where the guys were dove hunting to have lunch. I got a private shotgun shooting lesson from our friend Pablo. I actually hit the target-once! LOL! I plan on practicing a whole lot more.
My favorite part, as usual, was visiting with the people there and getting to know them. I really can't wait to go back (soon!).
