Tigre itself was very nice, and nice to get out of BA for the day- lots of beautiful houses, awesome mahogany boats, cheap hamburguesas (and bon a bon ice cream). ALLEGEDLY there is a park with a bunch of tigers in it, but I never saw it, and I suspect Wes was lying to me about the whole thing. But it was a lovely lovely day- the camera is out of battery right now, but we'll post more photos soon! Besos!!

i got really sunburned today
We went to Tigre today, an awesome beach town only about twenty minutes (by train- we took a bus for 1.5 horas but only $4 pesos, about 1.26 dollars). It was really cloudy when we left, and we were worried we'd see more of last night's thunderstorm, but it blew over into a beautiful sunny day. So sunny in fact that I got terrible, horrible, sunburn all over. I have a bandaid tan, a watch tan, a farmer's tan, a soccer tan (socks and shorts, whoo! actually minus the socks, but I wanted to roll with the types of tans thing)-- if I didn't look like a gringa before ("la copa pequena. mas barato. si. no- lo que mas barato. con bon a bon helado?") I definitely do now. The sunburn down here totally sneaks up on you too- it happens in like ten minutes. Sorry Mom! Maybe I'll post some gross pictures of it later (if you guys are lucky!).
