So one of the stops we made was to Argentina's Base Brown station. I'm editing pictures now and the opportunity was just too good to pass up:

My thoughts exactly. I'm just waiting for someone to publish it.

Even better would be if you Photoshop in that pic of Levi putting tefillin on Andrew behind the sign, and maybe also Harper with his yarmulke ... even though he was separated from our group. :)

One year!

Crazy how time has flown.

This trip has been written about in countless publications, and both @Dan and @chff have TRs going, so I'm not going to just repeat the same things again. Instead, over the next 10 days, I'll post pictures and descriptions for the corresponding trip day.

Sunday, December 9

Most of the group flew through the night yesterday and arrive in Buenos Aires late morning. Dan, myself, and 6 others had spent Shabbos in BA and headed off to Ushuaia on an early flight. See Dan's TR for the juicy details, as I'll keep these posts to mainly pictures.

Welcome to Ushuaia:
