This weekend Argentina celebrates it's 200 year anniversary. At the same time we are celebrating our fifth anniversary here in Buenos Aires. It's hard to believe that much time has passed since our arrival with two babies!
I have to admit that we have been very, very lazy about traveling into the city to partake in the festivities, or doing much of anything for that matter. The highlight of the weekend was watching the soccer or pardon futbol game between Argentina and Canada. It was Argentina's last friendly game before the World Cup which is starting in a couple of weeks. Canada lost 5-0 which was expected. I think that Canada was just happy to be invited to play with such a high ranking team. :)
We have spent long hours at the park this weekend, enjoying the fall weather. We are certainly having a good one this year with most days reaching highs of nearly 20C. We can't complain. I just hope that it doesn't mean we'll have a horrendously cold, wet spring in a few months!
All in all it was a weekend of recuperation. The Force went back on the road today and the kids are into their final three weeks of class before their school holidays. Our schedules are booked solid for the foreseeable future. Why does everything always pile up at the end of term no matter how well we plan for it?
I have included some pictures of fall colours in the area; as I know that many people have a hard time imagining anything but tropical weather in South America.
Happy Birthday Argentina! May the next 200 be good to you!
