Episode 6: March of the Penguins- Argentina Cont'd

( My attempt at a Fine Art Image)
We headed to Buenos Aires, and experienced the euro style city with the latin flair. When I was little I had a bit of an obsession with Evita aka Eva Peron, so seeing Casa Rosada, as well as her mausoleum with the inscription "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" on it pretty much made my BA experience. We didn't have a lot of time or money to spend in Buenos Aires but someday I would love to go back.

We caught a flight to Trelew ( because it was the only flight heading towards the south that was available) with hopes that we would find our way to Patagonia from their somehow. When we arrived we found out that the largest Magellenic Penguin Colony outside of Antarctica was only an hour away. It was an amazing sight. Hundreds of thousands of Penguins surrounding you and waddling across your path. We ended up falling into a little valley full of immigrants from Wales and went for a spot of tea at a traditional welsh tea house. All in all it was a fun little side trip before the over night bus to Patagonia
Enjoy the film
