Since I last wrote, I have gone from Cusco, Peru to Lima. Lima to Buenos Aires. From Buenos Aires on a 4000 mile roadtrip through Patatgonia to Córdoba. From Córdoba to Buenos Aires. Buenos Aires to Portland. Portland to L.A.

So here´s itinerary: We traveled from Buenos Aires to Bahía Blanca and then straight onto Peninsula Valdéz.  From Valdéz through Gaiman (for some Welsh tea!) to Parque Nacional Los Alceres.  North through El Bolson and Bariloche to the Ruta de los Siete Lagos. Launching off from San Martin de los Andes to Parque Nacional Lanín for a Volcano hike and sleeping under the stars.  North to Chos Malal for hot springs and then onto Córdoba (21 hour drive). From Córdoba to Buenos Aires to return the car.

And… the highlights of the roadtrip: sleeping in hammocks for two weeks straight, driving all night, seeing more stars than I ever have before, waking up to the sunrise, petting armadillos, trying to catch trout, swimming in crystal clear rivers and lakes, cooking over open fires, off-roading, getting off the beaten track and seeing Argentina from behind the wheel. And for me personally, learning to drive stick.

A truly amazing experience. As my experience as a Kiva fellow comes to a close, I am starting the process of searching for a job in Los Angeles.  I will try to blog with any major changes, but in the meantime, I encourage you to follow my buddy, Devin Dvorak and his experience with Fulbright and microfinance in Argentina at http://dgdvorak.wordpress.com/

I looked at my blog stats this morning and saw that over the last three months, 1000 people had visited my blog. To read, apparently, what I wrote. Now, I would not claim to be a writer, but I’m glad everyone is hopefully enjoying what I’m writing.  I don’t have anything big to write, no deep thoughts, but I do have some videos I’d like to share with you over the past week.

Weekend in Antigua. Solid mash-up of some shots from the weekend:

My KF13 welcome video: the first time I haven’t been behind the camera in a while

And the best lunch I have had in a long time: Pollo Dorado with Fresh Blackberry Juice

Anyway. Thanks for reading! I want to write more of what you guys want to hear *unless its something I really don’t want to write about so post some more comments on stuff you want to hear!
