The trip getting here was long, oh so long. I spent 6 and a half hours on a plane going from Los Angeles to Panama and then, after only an hour layover in Panama, I voluntarily assaulted my body for another 7 hours on a plane from Panama to Argentina.
Now you might think that a professional glutton for punishment would have stopped there. Right? But… oh, no… why would I? I arrived in Buenos Aires around 1:00 am, got to my hotel close to 3:00 am and boarded another flight the next afternoon for Uruguay.
I can see you shaking your head at me.
For the most part I enjoyed the experience. There were a few comical moments in transit. On the flight from Los Angeles International Airport to Panama a man boarded the flight, sat down and immediately fell into a deep slumber. We knew he wasn’t dead because he began snoring like a moose. The insanity of the situation was that he passed out as soon as he sat down and then commenced to snore for the entire, yes I said “entire”, 6 and half hours of the flight. I should have made a time lapsed video.
When we were deplaning from the second flight to Argentina, and I am not in any way, shape or form embellishing here, a young dad placed his son in the overhead storage bin to play. Yes you heard, or read, me right. This guy placed his son of about 3 or 4 years of age in the overhead storage bin. I really regret not having gotten a picture of that.
Anyhow, I’m in Montevideo now and I haven’t had a chance to get out and take pictures. I’ve worked for the past two days. I do plan to get out and shoot some video, take pictures. I’m also looking for interesting subjects to interview.
The performances have been really interesting but I’ll blog about those later.
Thanks for keeping up with me. Until we cross paths again, dooni dooni kononi be nyaga da.
