We are still in Argentina and are having blast. We are currently undertaking a great road trip from Patagonia, in Argentina, to Bolivia, in northern South America. Today was mostly spent in a small national park near the border of Chile and Argentina. The main thing I have learned today is that my parents are down right kooks.
After waking up this morning in our cozy tent in the Parque y Reserva Nacional Los Alerces, I started to work on some math. Soon, it was time for breakfast (el desayuno), or so I thought. My parents pulled out a cooler from the back of the truck where we normally store groceries. A couple bananas, some bread, and a piece of cheese were shared among us. I thought this was something to tide us over before breakfast, but I was wrong. The first thing that my parents said once we packed up the tent and started to drive was, “Why leave the park, why not go for another hike first?” You can guess what I thought of that, or more importantly, what my belly thought of it! I sighed and got out of the truck.
The hike was interesting. We saw some cool trees and a river that looked fun to kayak. The trees reminded me of Ents, the tree herders from The Lord of the Rings. They had arms and stern and shaggy faces. I enjoyed the forrest, but my hunger was growing.
After another two hours of driving, we came to the town of El Bolson. I got out of the car ready for breakfast... no lunch.. well by this time some would call it dinner. I was wrong again. My parents tried for about half an hour to solve a cell phone problem. I do admit, my parents bought me a ice cream cone along the way. Then we looked for a place to spend the night. Ah, but it was 7:00 PM and Argentineans don’t start thinking about dinner until after 9:00.
I have been doing some work at our nice cabana where we chose to spend the night. I am writing my blog and it is already 8:30. Man, I am hungry! After this, we are going out for dinner I am so excited! mmmmmm!!!
