StreamOfConsciousness. The Argentina Variety

A couple random thoughts about Argentina.

In keeping with my tradition of taking it upon myself to alter an entire countries flag, I thought I would go ahead and give Argentina a new slogan:

“Argentina; It’s amazing no one gets killed driving here!”

I think they are trying to be a “green country” and save on electricity by not installing any traffic signals. Cars will just drive down perpedicular streets, and somehow, someway one of the cars will know to stop and give way to the other. I have yet to figure it out, but until I do I’ll be clutching to my seatbelt. It’s pure pandemonium!

Which brings me to my next thought, er rather made-up-word: PanJamonIum. That’s all they eat here. Pan & Jamon (aka Bread and Ham). So I’ve coined the new word of panjamonium. Notify Webster.

They also eat Dulce De Leche on their pan. Which is quite delicious. And it’s laced with sugar which is probably why I’m still awake on this 14 hour bus ride from Mendoza to Buenous Aires. That and the fact that it’s about 38 degrees celcius here. For those of you on the Farenheit scale, just know that 38 degrees is REALLY friggin hot! How hot is it? It’s so hot that in about 6 more degrees you could turn ham into bacon. I guess you could say it’s 6 degrees of seperation between Jamon and Kevin Bacon.

Don’t forget to tip your waitress. I’ll be here all night. Sweating.


Gawd I love you!!! Miss you like mad

Panjamonium is a very clever word! Mmmmm, dulce de leche…Well, TripAdvisor.com came out with the world’s dirtiest hotels. Your rant about that place you stayed a few weeks ago belongs there! Dad and I are off to Mexico on Sunday – I think it’s pretty warm there (high 80’s, but cooler at night). I’m looking forward to hearing about Brazil, Carnivale, etc. The lack of stoplights reminded me of San Miguel.
