    Enjoying home

    December 20, 2019 in Guadeloupe ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    I was very happy to see my mother and brother as well as the rest of the family. There is no much time for taking pictures because there is so much to tell.

    My mother adopted a female chicken that is living on the veranda in a box.

    My sister arrived from Paris.

    We enjoy taking breakfast all together taking our time and talking about everything.

    Sint Marteen stop over

    December 18, 2019 in Guadeloupe ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    On my way to Guadeloupe, I stopped over in Sint Marteen a Dutch island in the Caribbean. I had 6 hours stop over. What do you do in 6 hours on an island. You go to the beach. Of course. After check in my luggage. I walked 15 min to the Maho beach. I was expecting an isolate and desolate beach. The beach was full of people coming to see the planes landing and taking off. The beach is pretty small but with 2 bars with live DJ thus party time.
    It was a great stop over.
    I enjoyed Mexican food at the beach.
    I like to come back to Sint Marteen for longer stay.

    Panama city

    December 17, 2019 in Guadeloupe ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    There are at least 3 PANAMAS.
    The Old Panama is the politic center with ministers and embassies in colonial style .
    The business Panama is gathering the higher buildings of whole south America . In this area there are also condos with 70 floors.
    The real Panama where people live and work with low salary.
    Panama is a city of very much contrasts.
    The Albrook is a large shopping mall where I almost got lost. I had to ask to find my way out. People love to shop even on Sunday.

    Panama canal Miraflores lock

    December 15, 2019 in Guadeloupe ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    The Panama canal is a must. It s close to Panama city, I visited 1 of the canal locks. There is a museum on 3 floors telling the story of the canal construction. It took a few years with workers from all over the world for getting the canal operational . I looked at ships passing the canal.. the canal is 80 km long with 3 majors locks. It save time and money for ships to use the canal.
    Panama people are very proud of the canal.

    Visiting Buenos Aires

    December 12, 2019 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    I have not made much pictures in BA. Not every where is safe taking pictures with a big camera. BA remember to Paris or Madrid. Large town with a lot of history at each street corner. Food is especially good. I went simply to restaurant that served grilled steak . Very tasty.

    I was very surprised. People queue in good order waiting for the bus. Very British. The center is so busy that people have to wait out side the metro station before entering the station and get on the train.

    On my way to Argentina

    December 10, 2019 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    I was sleeping during the flight and I just woke up at the right moment to view the mountain landscape. The Andes separating Argentina to Chile.
    Such a view makes my day.
    I forgot that I had to get at 4.30 in the morning for riding to the airport. I don't need much to be happy.Read more

    Buenos Aires Argentina

    December 10, 2019 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

    It's hot here. It looks like that I am following on political events. I just arrived to buenos Aires and this the celebration day for the new Argentinian president. There is a change of government and pretty hard challenge for them.
    People came from everywhere for attending the celebration from the street and then it was a long March. Pretty calm and with music.
    I like buenos Aires . It feels welcoming. Except the 80 min waiting for passing the migration control at the airport. Why so long . I don't really know. I just got a stamp in my pass and I was asked the name of my hotel.
    More a bit later I am attending a tango show.
