We spent our second to last night at the Estancia Santa Rita 2 hrs outside of Buenos Aires. It is an old and elegant hacienda. Elegant or tacky? It's hard to say which. I thought it was beautiful... and then also a little ridiculous. We took a lovely ride through the woods and fields on horseback and then had every intention of spending the afternoon at the pool until we realized it was closed for cleaning. It was REALLY hot Monday (high 102F, "feels like 108F" according to report) and the place didn't have air conditioning. Between cold showers and sitting very still reading I managed to enjoy my afternoon. Tim was a little nutty by the end of it. Nonetheless, I think we had a fabulous time overall.
