Argentina (9)
We're planning a trip to Argentina next month, taking in Buenos Aires, Mendoza and Los Glaciares down in Patagonia. Seeking tips on what to do and where to eat and so forth. Leave a comment and point me to your beautiful photo galleries. Or drop me a note. We also want to meet some locals, even those without photoblogs.

p.s. When I asked about reserving a room at Hosteria El Pilar in Patagonia, the form they sent back requested not just the usual credit card information but also my date of birth, Social Security number and mother's maiden name. For good measure I sent them my complete genetic sequence and some of my baby pictures.

I've got a few recent patagonia/argentina/chile videoblogs up. I went in November for three weeks and loved every minute. Make sure to do the W hike in Torres Del Paine and check out the Penguins, too!

I just went to Argentina in December 2005 to learn tango and so on. An entire travelogue written with embedded photos is here - http://travelogues.amitkoth.com/argentina

You'll have a great time!
