Seven Days and Counting—Vacation 2008

Hey guys, in one week I’ll be heading out of town on my first foreign trip since my visit to Vietnam in January 2007. I had to get a new passport because my old one was nearly expired, so I’ll get to make my first imprint on a spanking new one.

Can you guess where I’m going? The picture above is supposed to give you a hint, and it was actually taken by an Associated Press photographer in that city. I’m also planning to take my laptop with me, so we’ll see how the internet connection is where I’m going. (In Vietnam, it was crazy slow.)

Another hint is that I chose this place because the dollar is still stronger, so I’ll be able to dine again on a lot of cheap food. Let’s just hope the U.S. economy doesn’t tank while I’m away.

Answer to where I'm headed can be found in the comments section.

I don't know, and from the picture, I'm not sure if I want to know. I hope your food's a bit more appetizing!!!

Wow, you guys started out warm and went insanely hot. Saudade and Mrs. L were right, I am headed to Buenos Aires, Argentina. And I'm scared too of the picture because Argentina is known for its parrillas and meat, and I eat meat maybe once every two months. So it'll be a challenge to see what I find, but I have a list in hand and am ready for the challenge. :)

Have fun... I was in Argentina last year at this time and had a wonderful time. You may already know but the portions are huge. If the menu says it feeds 2 it really feeds 4...
