Weekend Getaway

Argentina Series: Day Five
Uruguay Adventure: Day One

Eunice and I had decided to cross the pond, rather the delta, and visit Montevideo.
Both of us had friends there we hadn't seen in a long time and Eunice had been hankering to try the river crossing via catamaran.
We met early, boarded the DeltaCat, and breakfasted on board, then thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful day, watching the scenery go by and above all our rich fellowship.

(You can enjoy the experience virtually http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQ4tcB9SDE4, except for the conversation.)

The crossing took a little over two hours and the bus ride from the coast to the capital another couple hours. There we were welcomed by Elena and made our way through city streets and busses to her one room abode. (Tomorrow I will tell you all about her.)

Here are some of the sights and yet more Spanish to decipher.





How about this ad: "A decent house ought not to be unreachable/unattainable."

Interrupting the year-ago-series to update you on the present:
Today, a great day re-connecting with dear friends from Argentina.

Eduardo C. comes every so often to the USA to visit his son and family in Indiana. The Hispanic congregation in Warsaw is blessed with his ministry every time. So, today I took off and went to hear him speak. A great message on "Spiritual Shortsightedness and Its Cure" II Peter 1:3-10 and wonderful fellowship afterwards. We filled a long table of FoAs (Fans of Argentina) at the restaurant. Two hours later (or was it three?) we had not yet exhausted the topics of conversation...but life must go on.

Which one is my brother?
