The First Day of My Blogging Life

Rundown of a typical Day in the past month of March.

Usualmente I wake up at 7:30 to read some Bible.
I eat and catch "el colectivo 59" or public bus for you americans to La Universidad De Belgrano.

I have been attending classes of Spanish from 9:30am-2:30pm Mon-Fri.
After class we usually go somewhere into the city and explore...there is quite a lot.

I went to Iguazu, la provincia de Misiones, this past weekend and it was amazing, it was like being in a movie.
I wonder what it was like to be one of the first people to come upon the falls, what were their thoughts?

We also went to Jesuit Ruins in San Ignacio. These were also very cool.

One of my favorite parts of traveling to Iguazu was the tour we took of a Guarani tribe. These were the first people to ever live in the area. Most of them live in La Provincia Misiones en Argentina. There are only about 850 of them in this area. They rely totally on tourism, they give tours to people like us and sell things to the visitors. There is a spanish language school near the village we went to. It teaches the Guarani people spanish so they can leave the area and get work outside of the village.

Hopefully i will be able to post some pics and a great video of the Guarani people singing us a song.
