Two roads diverged
in a wood, and I--
I took the one
less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Argentina: Buenos Aires

March 3 - 23, 2005

The occasion of my visit to Buenos Aires and Argentina was a study program Design Intensive/DHA 5196 between the School of Design, University of Minnesota and the School of Architecture, Universidad de Buenos Aires.

I also toured the Capital Federal, San Telmo, Recoleta, the fruit market of Tigre, the city center, tango bars & events, Puerto Madero, and stayed at my friend's house in Belgrano. I traveled by subte (subway), taxi, and as a passenger in my friend's car!


Iguazu Falls, Misiones Jesuíticas, Montevideo, Colonia

March 3 - 23, 2005

  • flew to Iguazu to wander the town and tremendous falls. Better than Niagra!
  • toured the Misiones Jesuíticas a world heritage site
  • took the Buquebus across the Río de la Plata/River Plate, a rather strange name for what is translated in Spanish as the River of Silver
  • In Uruguay I toured Montevideo that got its name from
    Hill/Monte + Number Six/VI + deo (deo = from east to west, a sailing direction).
  •  dropped down to Colonia another world heritage site.
  • Then I went home.
