Almost There!

I´m currently sitting in a cyber cafe at the smaller airport in Buenos Aires (most local flights are routed through this one). After arriving in B.A. and getting through customs (painless and not even very time consuming) we took a remis (taxi) over here, hoping we´d be able to catch the earlier flight to Cordoba. No such luck. Another eight hour layover.

At least they have good coffee and a cyber cafe :-)

The coffee is expensive though. Wee little cups cost the equivalent of almost $3.50. Sorta felt like I was back at Starbucks. But at 5 a.m. we definitely needed the caffeine! Although we both slept some on the flight down, it wasn´t much. Dinner wasn´t served until 8 p.m. on the plane and they served ´breakfast´at 1:30 a.m.

The hubby might be coming down with a cold. So pray for him! Don´t really want to start out feeling all cruddy. He´s gone to find a place to stretch out and get some rest while I check e-mail and post on the blog. Then I´ll join him for a little R&R (or something resembling that hopefully) while we wait until time to board the plane.

Even though our flight isn´t until 1:30 p.m., we were able to check the big pieces of luggage through and kept one of the wheeled carts for the carry-on, computer bag and my things.

If the remainder of the trip goes as scheduled, we´ll arrive ¨home¨ around three or four o´clock this afternoon. Meaning our trip will have lasted 34-35 hours from the time we left the hotel near the Detroit airport at 5 a.m. Friday.

The plan is to...have no plan! We´re hoping we can just go to Marcela´s (my language tutor) and just haul our stuff in and go right to bed. Not even make dinner plans. If we can sleep straight through, that would be the best thing I think. And if we wake up hungry, there is a small area market and several restaurants within walking distance.

So the wee little cup of caffeine is starting to wear off. I think it´s time to find the hubby and try to get some rest. Hasta luego!
