The weather has finally cooled off in Buenos Aires and people started to fill up the city coming back from vacation. With only 15 days left in this city, I’m really going to miss this place but I’m ready to keep on moving. We’ve had been here for over 3 months. It’s been good.
On April 14th, I’ll be traveling west from Buenos Aires going to Rosario, Cordoba, Mendoza, then finally Santiago, Chile by April 22nd. I’ve never been to Chile so I’m excited to check it out. We plan to stay in Santiago till May 2nd and possibly fly back to the US afterwards.
