We left Philadelphia yesterday with temperatures in the 40’s and now we are in Buenos Aires where it is in the 80’s….Staying in the Recoleta area of the city known for its great historical, cultural and architectural interest - and also for the Recoleta Cemetery where Eva Peron and every other famous person is buried. It is also one of the most affluent neighborhoods.
Being here for the Christmas holidays is strange… yet peaceful – a time for quiet reflection and some r&r as we prepare for the upcoming intense adventure with the Students on Ice Expedition. We are studying the list of 66 students and 23 fellow educator members. We fly to Ushuaia and board the 278 foot long M/V USHUAIA the day after tomorrow.
