That food looks terrible. Any kosher around us?
Agreed. No kosher McDonald's in the US

How accurate is the balloon on the map? Apparently you're sitting on the wing of the plane.

What an amazing night. All but 3 of our group is here already, and we had a lovely dinner and chanukah party.

Thinking about doing Instagram stories. Never done them before, and don't have much patience.

Aye or nay?

So apparently there's a fuel shortage in Ushuaia.

Looks like we're adding the Falklands to our itinerary!

Was an amazing sight to see Jews of literally all stripes lighting the menorah. 28 menorahs, all candles lit, with an epic sunset over the Beagle Channel as a backdrop.
