Argentina

We went to Argentina for a week and a half and I thought I'd share a few pictures. But first, an apology. I scheduled a bunch of posts while we were away so that it wouldn't look like this blog was being neglected, but then I came back and never got around to posting anything until now. Oops. At least I had good intentions :)

Ok, onto the pictures. The main reason we went to Argentina was to visit Iguazu Falls. Even though it we didn't go during the rainy season where the falls are even more impressive, the falls were still gorgeous.


Purty, huh?

We had some good food while in Argentina too. One of our favorite meals while there was at La Cabrera. The line was long, but they offered beer and appetizers while we waited. They also have a sister restaurant across the street, and the line there was just as long. When we finally sat down, we ordered the ribeye and it was HUGE! It also came with about a million little side dishes, all of which were super tasty.

Argentina is famous for their beef and parillas or bbq/grill restaurants are all over the place, with the grill usually in plain sight.


And a typical dish at a parilla is to get the mixed plate, with various meats like beef, sausage, blood sausage, kidneys, intestines, etc.

Anyway, we're back now and will be returning to normal posting!

I've never been to Argentina but it looks so beautiful! I am jealous. I have heard that Argentinean food is delicious. Maybe to compensate for the fact that I have never been there, I will need to frequent an Argentinean restaurant. To console myself.

The waterfall pics are so pretty! And the steak! OMG so big! A while back my Uncle told me this story about this enormous steak he had when visiting Argentina. I thought he was exaggerating about the size of the steaks there, but I guess not after seeing your picture!

Here's the perfect place where you could stay in Argentina and have the comfort that you want that wouldn't cost you that much.
