My first impressions of
Argentina are that it is very
green. It certainly was quite a contrast after being in the depths of a North
American winter for the last fortnight. I hardly saw any green at all through
this whole time.
After landing in Buenos Aries I picked up my hire car and traveled north to a little town called Areco. Some of
roads are very good and some are pretty ordinary, it seemed like my GPS
definitely wanted me to drive on some of the ones that were quite ordinary. One
of the freeways I traveled on, half of the time one side of the freeway was
shut off because it was under repair (by the look of the signs it had been
under repair for 10yrs or more), and sometimes the other side was not a lot
Areco is an old Argentinean town and is famous for its horse and cart races which see up to 80 competitors involved I based myself here as tomorrow I will go to Expoagro the largest agricultural field day in
a 90km drive north of here.

my dinner "Alfresco style". Nice to be in a warm climate at last!
