Thoughts from Buenos Aires

Random thoughts for the day...

Dead people smell funny. Going to Recoleta Cemetary was interesting, but the freshly dead do have a funny smell in the heat of the day. Yuck.

Uruguay was very cool and we'll need to go back and spend more time there. We'll also be back to BsAs someday, this is one of our favorite places we've ever visited... but we still have a lot of the world to see.

I found some craft beers here in BsAs, I'll be bringing back a few for a tasting sometime in the near future. But for the most part beer in BsAs sucks. Salta Negra was the one exception, though its a bit sweet. Uruguayan beer also sucks.

We're headed to the airport in a few hours and will be back in the ATL tomorrow AM. I'll put together a slide show and a full trip report over the next few days...

Perhaps they're not burying them deep enough?! Maybe they didn't get the memo that it's six FEET under, not six inches.

Uhm, yeah. The coffins are above ground for the most part. In some of the tombs you could literally reach in and touch them, but those are older and much less well maintained than the newer or more famous ones.

Recoleta Cemetary: We keep it stinkin'.
