I stayed most of the time in Rio Grande, the largest city on the island. It is on the coast, and there are no mountains, making it VERY windy. I stayed with a wonderful family who have had an exchange student from Belgium staying with them for the whole year, which is actually why I went down there in the first place, because we met on the Rotary north trip!
May 25th was the 200th anniversary of Argentina as a country, and there were many celebrations in Buenos Aires, and also an extra long weekend. For this weekend we all went to Ushuaia, where they have an apartment. Ushuaia is known as the most southern city in the world, and is surrounded by beautiful mountains, and the ocean. There is also a few ski resorts surrounding the city, making quite a "touristy" town. It is also the capital of TDF. I arrived a little too early, and the ski resorts were not open yet, but it did snow once while we were in Ushuaia!
On another note, I return to the U.S. in about 3 weeks, on June 2nd! Very excited!
