Dear family and friends,
We flew home from Buenos Aires yesterday and have a few days to get ready for Israel. Highlights of our six days in Buenos Aires were a comfortable bed, hot shower, food that was not ham and cheese, and Shabbat services at the Libertad Synagogue. We walked for miles, checking out the ice cream and the charming neighborhoods of the city that is one of the ten largest in the world. Summer in Buenos Aires is hot and humid, something that felt oppressive when we were touring but we appreciate a lot since returning to frigid Boston.
In contrast to the simple life of Patagonia, here we enjoyed steak dinners with Argentinian wine, tried all kinds of ice cream, and attended a Tango show that was quite a spectacle.
