La Carolina


IMG_1156.JPG

After almost eight months of traveling south I began the last leg east into Brazil. First stop from Mendoza was the village of La Carolina just outside of San Luis. From there, I returned to Cordoba with Dan, Janet, and Leanne for a great few nights of fun and the Greece vs. Argentina soccer match.

Rosario


IMG_1432.JPG

What I expected to be a cool place for a night out turned into a nice place to get some rest with beautiful bulidings everywhere to pass the days.

Buenos Aires


IMG_1584.jpg

The capital of Argentina starts by being its most impressive city. Soon you realize it is maybe the most interesting one on the continent. Then it grows in your heart to become one of the most amazing in this hemisphere and before you know it, it has snuck into being one of your favourites on the whole planet.

Tigre and Colonia


IMG_1720.JPG

Two small riverside towns that connected me from Argentina to Uruguay - they were very charismatic to say the least. I also had the good fortune of old friends in Colonia.

Montevideo and Salto


IMG_1849.JPG

A short visit was made to Montevideo, Uruguay's capital, before running to the city of Salto on the Argentina border to catch the Uruguay-Ghana World Cup quarter-final win. Montevideo needed more time and seemed to have something happening every night but it was almost worth missing for the insanity and friendly people I met in non-touristed Salto the day of the match.

San Ignacio de Mini


IMG_2139.JPG

The Jesuits were very powerful in Argentina's colonial history until the Spanish had had enough and expelled them. I visited one of the more well-known sites in a small town called San Ignacio whose embers were still glowing red in the morning sun.

Iguazu Falls


IMG_2355.JPG

The waterfall that divides Argentina and Brazil stands tall among the two giants of the continent; it stands tall and wide, endless in vista, beauty, and power to enchant. It is the most beautiful place I have seen on this planet, and here are my 60 or so favourite photos.

Sao Paulo


IMG_2799.jpg

The first stop in Brazil was its arts and business capital, São Paulo. There I would encounter many art galleries, 6-figure graffiti commissions, and a delicious sandwich just for a start nevermind some really great ambassadors from Brazil in the guise of Priscilla, Bruna, and Cristina.

San Antonio do Pinhal


IMG_2867.JPG

We met up with Bruna and Cristina for the weekend at this very non-gringo resort town near Sau Paulo. We had craft-beers in Campos do Jordao and climbed nearby Pedra do Bao the next day. It was a fantastic weekend.

Rio Part 2


IMG_3407.JPG

Back to Rio one last time for four more days of exploring land, sea, and air. A tram trip up to stunning Santa Theresa, a swimming trip off the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, and a helicopter trip around Christ the Redeemer at sunset not to mention a football match at Maracana, another climb up Sugarloaf, and everything I could squeeze into four final days.
