On April 12th, 2009 we left Buenos Aires on a 20 day journey that would take us on a voyage around the southern tip of South America (Cape Horn) to Valparaiso, Chile, followed by a bus ride over the Andes, through Mendoza, Argentina and back to Buenos Aires...a "southern loop". The following is some of the things I saw on Day 3.

Old fort city,
on a capitol coastal river hill.
Fall jacket shade.
Side street graffiti,
Armored trench coat shotgun banks.
Zillertal Beer tastes like PBR.
Cool big river night.
New Rasta-dyed wool hat.
Orange vested crane container shipyard.
Pulling, tugging out of port.
The sun expiring on the Rio de la Plata.

Imagine if you're job was to carry around a shotgun all day. Sound like an awesome gig? Then Montevideo is where you want to be. Uruguay is the Sweden of South America, and the money here moves (by old beat up armored trucks and shotguns). Not the clean-cut uniform type? No problem. We saw shady looking guys in trench coats with shotguns too. (Clay this shot(gun) was for you buddy.)

When I go home I'm building a fort.
