Living Room / Re: How will the Earth end?

Just when this thread was seeming to go back on track, I'm back here to help stray it a bit more ...  :D

Nice trip/cruise, 4wd!  :Thmbsup:
I hope you and your wife enjoy it. And I'm glad that those officials at the Brazilian Consulate were bored enough to grant you your visa in record time  ;D Hopefully you'll enjoy the visit to the Iguazú Falls more than you think. Yes, it's just "gravity at work"  :P, but let me warn you that it's gravity at work BIG TIME:

Upon seeing Iguazu, the United States' First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt reportedly exclaimed "Poor Niagara!"

Anyway, from your planned schedule I guess you'll only stay for a few hours at Buenos Aires, mainly transferring between the two airports, on your first stop here:
so it'll possibly end up being: fly in to EZE, transfer to AEP, fly to IGR, stay 2 nights and watch gravity at work, fly to AEP, stay o/n at EZE and then out the next day.

By the way, sorry about those U$S 100 entrance fee. I didn't know that was applicable to Australians. Apparently they're stating with it on January 2009  :(

for that privilege I get to pay for a US$100 visa on arrival - you may be able to pick up on the fact I'm not particularly thrilled with that idea

The Argentine Consulate in Australia has an explanation about it on their website:

Australian citizens, who are going to Argentina for up to 90 days, do not require a visa when they travel for tourism, business or investment purposes.
However, as of 1st January 2009 Australian citizens will need to pay an entry fee upon arrival in Argentina which is equivalent to the amount Argentine citizens have to pay when applying for an Australian visa (roughly USD100).

From your cruise's brochure it seems that you'll be spending a whole day (Feb 8th) in Buenos Aires. I hope you are able (and willing) to get off the ship and do some tourism here. If those end up being your plans, just let me know and I'll be happy to help you. I'm sending you a PM with my info.


Oh, and about that "End of the Earth" thing ...
Fascinating that a thread entitled "How will the Earth end?" becomes a travelogue (and how appropriate;))

It is particularly appropriate since Antarctica has been called "The end of the Earth" many times (but maybe that's what you meant and I'm simply "over-explaining" it ...  :-\)

We're flying Buenos Aires to Lima on a extreme whistle-stop tour of Peru before catching an Antartic cruise ship at Santiago.

Hey! How long will you stay in BA? Drop by and say hi while you're here if you want  :)

Great article, Lashiec!  :Thmbsup:

I wonder if anyone can build a replica too. If so, *someone* will do it  :-\

... and I'd be first in line to buy one!  :-[

... but they'd probably be more expensive than an SSD drive  :(

I just didn't think we had such sensitive ninnies..  er... members here in the Living Room.

Me too. I usually don't spot many ninnies here in the Living Room forum. I guess they're all in the "Shareware Discounts for Members" or some other section ...  ;D

As for me, I guess you did read the part when I said that I'm neither French nor do I care particularly for that country, didn't you? I mean, you can insult France all you want ... just make sure you do it for the right reasons  ;)

Ok, back to cats it is  :D

is asking why he would name the nice kitty Persia

I'm obviously not sure, but I guess it's because Persian cats are one of the most common breeds of domestic cats. See: Persian catw

By the way, I didn't know there are so many different breeds of cats  :huh:
