9 de Julio, Argentina

My favorite color.  This is a building down town in 9 de Julio.
There are so many of these funny old cars around.  I want one.
Those are trees, on the inside of the building.  I LOVED this site.  We drove past this and I made my husband walk back to the site just so I could take a picture of it.
Notice the plants growing on top. 
Many people travel by bike.  I can't wait to do the same this summer in the warm weather of Utah.

Pictured above is the softer side of 9 de Julio.  This is what I would like to remember, not this.  It is a sleepy little town about five hours by bus outside of Buenos Aires, Argentina.  After the first day things went very well.  The family we stayed with, some of my husband's friends from his LDS mission, were so warm and welcoming.  I loved spending time here and walking around the picturesque town.  It's adorable.

Beautiful photos. Hope you are feeling better after your previous post. You were right not to tolerate that sort of treatment...it's definitely not ok and there need to be consequences.

Hope it hasn't spoiled the trip for you.

Gorgeous pics, they flow so well.

Sorry about your bad day, that's just terrible. And gross. Very, very gross. I actually have two very similar stories I could share, they are actually even more disgusting if you can believe it. So I won't share :)

I hope you have an amazing weekend girl!!

Rachael, I'm in love with your little piece of the web here -- It seems to be everything that is lovely and wonderful in the blogosphere. (The fact that you're as big an Audrey fan as I am also helps ... Hehe.) I found you via your comment on Sue's site (The Zhush) and am definitely a new follower!
