Dec 13, 2011:

Muchas Gracias, Piedras Suites!

While we have good internet, we thought we'd provide an update.

Our first night in the downtown San Telmo area of Buenos Aires involved a little "roughing it." That is, the cheap hotel was ...well, let's just say it was cheap! But the second night, WOW!!!

The folks at Piedras Suites sponsored us for a night! The difference between the cheap hotel and Piedras Suites felt like a yo-yo ride.

It's our third night "on the road" tonight. We'll spend it at the airport waiting for our 4:30 AM flight down to Ushuaia.

The suite's kitchen had an electric juicer, so we bought some oranges.

From the balcony of our suite. Adventure? Of course! Who would have guessed we'd be "fancy-ing it" down in Buenos Awesome?

A look at the suite with its own kitchen.

A large, flat-screen TV behind the stairs...

Up the stairs, looking down at our gear: 2 boxes and 1 duffle bag. Behind the white shade is the sliding glass door to the balcony. PS: The bike box was last tracked flying through Kentucky en route to Argentina.

The stairs lead to the bedroom... (soft bed, hot shower...)

OK, one more look at downstairs because it was sooooo nice! Sigh... will camping be like this for the next 18 months?

The following day, we walked around and came across a bike shop: Bairesroll.com. They rent bikes for tours around the city. We couldn't help but take a photo of this tandem. Hmmmmm, if our bike doesn't get to Ushuaia, perhaps ...well, perhaps ...we can use this one?

Andres of Baires Roll Bike Tours gives thumbs up for our journey. He couldn't believe what we were going to do, especially after noticing how Tauru kept on bumping into things in his shop. So he gave us a flag to attach to our bike so that people can see us ...cuz we may not see them.

Tauru takes the flag for a test run. Yelp, it works.


Spread the word and help us Raise Awareness!
