A Day on the Water - November 11, 2016

This may be the last post for a few days as tomorrow we are heading into the jungle and as Annie put it, internet is basically nonexistent.

Street scene in Buenos Aires. This is the last day all the group will be together, with half of them leaving late this afternoon to go back to the States while the rest of us go on the post trip to Igassu Falls.

Taking the bus to the docks, we went through some interesting areas of town. I can't believe Linda took a picture of this store. What is the world coming to when a prim-and-proper matron takes photos like this? You would never catch me doing such a thing.

Photo of a store on my side of the bus. Photo posted only to allow readers to see what part of town we were passing through. Documentarian Bob.

We were getting a different view of Buenos Aires today. Taking a boat trip through the vast Delta area north of town.

Photo by Bob. The water levels are actually three feet higher than normal as you can see by the steps and railing disappearing down in the water. Many of the houses in this area of the Delta are on stilts that raise them up another 10 or 12 feet. Flooding is not that common, but it does occur on occasion and is due to rainfall in Brazil, far to the north.

Grocery store boat. You put a sign out on your dock when you want it to stop.

A drive up, no, scratch that, a boat up grocery store.

Beautiful stained glass window in the restaurant where we at lunch.

Linda's last contribution for the day, a hair salon. I know its a short post, but that's all for now, time to rest up for the upcoming jungle.
