Hola, Argentina!!!

Hey guys! I have taken a bit of a break from blogging while on the road but now I’ve arrived in Ushuaia, Argentina, the capital of Tierra del Fuego! I spent last night in Buenos Aires (‘Good Wind’ in Spanish) and checked the place out. I saw some good local soccer and ate some really tender beef. Then I took a four-hour plane ride here, to Ushuaia. Ushuaia is indeed the southernmost city in the world, maybe besides Penguintown. I’m still getting settled. Tomorrow night I will be on a Russian built exploration boat heading south, going to Antarctica (hopefully there’s nothing in between me and Antarctica nor me and my sleep)! I can’t wait to get there🐧! Unfortunately, my Grammie (my dad’s mom) passed away this week and I can’t go to her funeral because of this trip, therefore I dedicate this Antarctic journey to her and know that she can see me here, down under.

    Elliot, Thanks for your geographic tutorial. It has been amazing to watch your journey and I’m learning all about the new places you are visiting. Thanks for opening my eyes to the rest of the world. You’ll have to share your tips on traveling as I don’t really like to fly. Give your Dad a big hug for me, I’m sorry to hear about the passing of your Grammie. I want you to know you are an amazing child, at your age to be embracing life to its fullest. Can’t wait to read your next post.
    Kindly,
    Karen Spencer

    Hi guys, So sorry to hear about your grammie Elliot. It’s a really tough time of year to lose a loved one. My thoughts are with you guys.
    I received your Christmas card, it was awesome. Great pics. I did a picture card this year too, I’ll send one to your address here in Douglas, hopefully it’ll get to you. It will be very late though. Sorry about that :/ Harris has gotten so big! And funny:) can’t wait for you to see him!
    Elliot, I consider it a pretty cool gift this year you having me on this blog, I’m learning a lot and look forward to checking my emails for a change. I really appreciate being part of your adventure and I thank you for that 🙂
    Happy holidays you guys!!
