Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it’s packing to Argentina we go! Just a quick question for you, we need to clarify what the correct spelling is for that special Argentinean drink? Is it Matay, or Maatae? Also how do you get that little pronunciation line above the letter “t”? Does this look right “Matey^e”? What about this “Maut~e”? Whatever, it doesn’t matter. It is the best of times and it is the worst of times. It is the best of times because we are about to have the experience of a lifetime- an experience that will expand our comfort zone, an experience that will teach us so much, an experience of very good steaks. It is the worst of times because we are leaving behind our friends and families at a time when we would have been celebrating the end of the semester together with them. But don’t cry for me Argentina because we are Gauchos and there is no need to cry for Gauchos. By the way, whenever you say or read the word “Gaucho,” does the word “Nacho” pop into your head? Furthermore, when you hear descriptions of the great Argentinean flatlands, “the Pampas,” are you mentally overwhelmed with its sound alike cousin, “pompous”? We have arrived at the dark secret of this blog, a confession of our greatest fear for this trip, that is, when we arrive in Argentina and break out in a tango at the Recoleta cemetery, our dancing will be so bad that Evita and others will rise from the dead and cry for us, but when we try to explain to them not to cry because we are Gauchos from the Pampas, we will accidentally say that we are Nachos from the Pompous, and as a result of our faux pas we will be banned from drinking what Gauchos like to drink best MUTT^~AAE!  Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it’s packing to Argentina we go!
