a visit from my brother

My brother came down to visit me.  We wandered around Buenos Aires and Uruguay for a few weeks.  It was great.

Chances of being scalded or blasted with cold water?  80%

nice to see somebody down here doing some nice custom work

aaaaand some ridiculous custom work

the port was full of great looking bows and sterns

the streets are full of shady sycamore trees

schwinn varsity crossing!

always up for a beer and a good chat

in a cafe or as the sun goes down over the river

this motor is a winner!

rolling in the CheryQQ308 (actual model name of our chinese rental)

then i caught dinner at the montevideo water treatment plant

the ''AC'' went from little hot to lotta hot

gatorade comes in ''blue'' flavor here

camping with CheryQQ308

Uruguayan rally racing

pleasant cobbled streets of colonia and a cool crosswalk sign

cool hostel had a moroccan door

the darts game went a bit astray...  sorry celiar!


cute Mateo was a true hat thief

the waves were breaking overhead directly on the shore

uruguay has great sandwiches.  this is a milanesa, which goes: bread, mayo, lettuce, breaded tenderized steak, grilled ham-cheese-ham, mayo, tomato, lettuce, chimichurri sauce, hot sauce, grilled peppers, bread

so does the whiskey come with the pringles or do the pringles come with the whiskey?

me and my bro

yeah, there was a full circle rainbow.

double full circle rainbow oh my god!

a monument to motorcyclists of south america.

renting bikes and cutting through buenos aires traffic reminded us of frogger

T can't resist launching into the ball pile.  we peaced out when the disgruntled fat guy started our way

there are some amazing buildings in BA

the cemetary looks like New Orleans, but most of the burial vaults are massive, extending downwards

i caught a bus back to patagonia, which affords a unique perspective from the second level.

yeah, patagonia is awesome.
