Tell us how you really feel

I was corrected by an Argentine because I
referred to the Malvinas (as she called them)
as the Falklands.  But these signs in
Port Stanley, the capital, make it very clear
(and so did the locals I spoke with) just
how the people who live there feel—British
through and through.

ABC Wednesday—U is for "Uruguay"

This wonderfully wabi-sabi building is
in the Ciudad Viejo, in Montevideo.

Only got to spend a couple of days here,
but the Old City was charming, the

people too—and we ate some 
gooood food.

I learned quite a few things while I was on my trip to
Antarctica (and I'm just posting this now due
to welcome-home computer issues).  One of the things
I learned is that you can go almost anywhere if 

you just have sticks—including to the top of a  
snowy, icy, very high hill (though going down that hill

was actually harder than going up).
