When you think of South America you think hot and sunny, right? Yeah, so did we!
First realization in Argentina: It is really cold, overcast and rainy here! Lesson learned. Next time we’ll research the weather. (Good thing we are classic over-packers).
Second realization: Everyone here loves a good "siesta.” Like, everyone! Businesses shut down, restaurants lock their doors until 8 p.m. and the city is a ghost town! (Except for all the international beach volleyball players walking the streets trying to find food). It was a tough adjustment for us, but that's why we brought Starburst and M&M's, right?
The great news is we made it safely to Corrientes, thanks mostly to our new best travel buddy, Nick Lucena, who just happens to be fluent in Spanish!
