Day 1: Overbooking

Hello everybody!!

here we are, on our first day in Argentina. We almost suffer a heart attack when yesterday night, 2 hours before our departure, an Iberia steward told us that due to the overbooking, we had no place in the plane.... WHAT!!!!!!??????
I almost fainted and Mihai almost kill him... so finally we manage to get two seats... ufffff

so, after a 12 hours trip we managed to land at Buenos Aires using an approach "category 3"... that is that the fog was sooooo dense that the pilot couldn´t see the landing track until we were already landed.... and the best of all, we could see everything (in fact nothing) with a camera on the plane tail.... incredible 3rd category landing.

We arrived to the hostel willing to see the center of buenos aires but, bad luck the farmers were having a "non peaceful" demonstration all over the center so my far far far away Argentinian uncles came to rescue us and take us for a trip around buenos aires. We saw the delta "El tigre", San Isidro neighborhood, la Boca, Palermo lakes and el Mar de la Plata ...incredible wide river....

And now, at 21.03 local time, 02.03 Spanish time we go to sleep. Tomorrow, 6.15 the clock alarm will sound and we will go to see the Glaciers.......

P.S. Cris forgot to say we have also seen the Plaza de Mayo, La Casa Rosada (the government building) and the Obelisk.
