"Spotted on the Road". El Calafate, Argentina

DrFumblefinger ·
Walking through this town in desert steppe of Patagonia, in the rain-shadow of the Andes, we came across this beautiful car "showcased" on a hotel's grounds.  It's obviously a Ford but can someone help me figure out what year and model it is?

El Tigre and the Parana Delta, Argentina (Where Gumbo was #158)

DrFumblefinger ·
A great day trip from Buenos Aires is to El Tigre. Settled during a yellow fever epidemic, it was a destination of escape for the well heeled. It still has a nice laid-back feel and is a great place to go for a stroll.

  While they look extraterrestrial, those aren't flying saucers or wormholes in the sky; rather, they're some of the most unusual cloud formations I've ever seen.  The above image was captured at dusk my first night in Patagonia and it...

Re: El Yunque: A visit to the rain forest

DrFumblefinger ·
A great visit and a great hike! Seems like you had nice weather. Was it wet underfoot? Trails have good traction or was slipping and sliding a problem?

Re: El Yunque: A visit to the rain forest

PHeymont ·
Ah, yes...that's something I left out. Traction on the trails was just fine...until it started to rain on our way back to the trailhead. That's when we realized the obvious: in a rain forest, it rains. And of course, the umbrellas were in San Juan. And the overpriced ponchos were in the car, back at the trailhead!

It is too bad you didn't make it to La Mina - Swimming under the falls is one of my favorite things to do in Puerto Rico! I ould say that it is closer to 1.5 miles each way.

This is definitely on my to do list now. Thanks for the great pictures. I wish that Brentano's and Scribner's stores in NYC were still with us, they were the most beautiful stores I have seen.

The mysterious 'mechanism' is the ability to raise and lower the keel to sail in shallower water. Hence the reason the boat heeled over further. A keel is necessary when using a high sail - a technology passed on from the Arab world to Vikings !

Re: In Egypt: Around Aswan

Amateuremigrant ·
Plenty of great memories from Aswan - much more laid back than the churning touristopolis of Luxor, antiquities notwithstanding. The Nubian population adds a new cultural aspect, allowing the visitor time and space to absorb the timeless river’s influence, with the desert at barely a stone’s throw away. Fab pictures.

Thanks for the wonderful memories. As to the rooms named for stars, we found that the Spencer Tracey and Katherine Hepburn rooms are adjacent, and have a connecting door between them. Things that make you go hmmmmm

I remember the waterfall and the pools - I also remember the paths there being incredibly slippery. I nearly fell in. Thanks for the reminder of a lovely trip (probably 12 or more years ago).
