Our first night in Cordoba, Argentina we were wandering the cool streets full of art galleries and found an oil painting that perfectly captured our many weeks in South America. There are two horses; saddled gaucho style, standing by a beautiful river that looks like so many we have seen along the way. We just had to have it.
After making friends with the gallery owner and making our purchase we wandered a little farther and found a sushi restaurant. We loved having something different for a change and the sushi was very yummy. The next day we went on a city tour and learned about the history of Cordoba.
We sat on the top of Double Decker bus which was also very fun. We
visited several churches that where hundreds of year old with many
intricate designs. We went to an art museum and had the chance to see
local and tribal art. One of my favorites was a handmade metal sculpture
of a man laughing.
We spent the rest of our days here working on school and swimming in the warm pool. If you haven’t learned enough you can click here to learn more about Argentina and Cordoba. At the end of the week we hopped on a bus and traveled north for Posadas, a little town bordering Paraguay.
When we arrived we did some hotel searching and found a little place on the city square. We could hear the church bells ring from our window. We had to spend a couple days here because the visa office for Paraguay (our next stop) wasn’t open on the weekend. We were surprised by how nice the little town was. It was right on the Parana River with play parks and board walks. Each night we went on sunset walks by the river. It was stunning. We held tight rope contests a.k.a walking on a thin rail road track and my mom and I were the only two to make it to the end.
There was also a super steep slide that was rocket fast. One thing I thought of while flying down the slide like a rocket with Everest was that it has been fantastic spending time with my little brother! We are almost six years apart and without this incredible trip we would never have the chance to spend so much time together and make so many memories. Even though we bug each other we are still best friends forever. Posadas was a great stop but I can’t wait to experience Paraguay.
