Of Course, I Did!

Of course, I went geocaching in Argentina!  However, I was wondering if it was really going to work out and yeah!!!!  I went to the most interesting place yet geocaching!  It was the Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires. They say it is one of the most visited sites in the world.  I have never been any place like this before.  It was a very very old cemetery where lots of famous people from around the world are buried....or not really buried....they are in coffins right there where you can see most of them (not the people, but the coffins!)  Lots of statues and a great place for photography but of course, I didn't have my good camera trying to travel light!! We saw where Evita Peron is laid to rest.  In the first picture, the cache was located at the end of the aisle of tombs....the second picture shows me trying to climb on Millie's leg to reach the cache...and the third one shows us holding the treasure!  Inside the cache was a travel bug that originated in Germany and traveled to Argentina via Peru.  I took it with me so it could travel to the US.  Its goal is to travel around the world and back to Germany.  We had a wonderful time in Argentina, but now back to life in America..... tomorrow.....ON TO THE RACES IN JACKSONVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA!  GO 98!!!!!!!!!!  However, I'll see you at church on Sunday!
