Blogging more should have been my new years resolution...

So, i am in Rosario. I was here six years ago, time flies when you are having fun, maybe i have had too much fun and now i am back.

Want a little tour?

This time i haven't been partying, walking is the new partying for me at least? When you walk, and when you especially don't have an iPhone (better when some one steals it on you and ´you´ is someone else)

The left hand doesn't know what the right one is doing?

I was on one of those walks yesterday, when i came across a statue of Admiral Brown, an Irish guy that migrated to America with his family, and through the misfortune of his father getting yellow fever ended up getting work on a ship that was bound for South America. His misfortune was a lucky break for Argentina.

Admiral Brown

Most people here know a bit about him, and they should too, if wasn't for this Mayo man, the entire country would be speaking Portuguese.  

When it came to doing things and getting things done, he would say
"Even if to the devil the word is given, then it must be kept"
You could say he was a man of his word?

In one battle, he got his leg blown off, he still conducted the battle from the deck of the ship and won, he did this with some cowboys ´Gauchos´ and a few ships, this is how the Argentine navy started, it had to start somewhere, so it started there.

Admiral Brown, kicking back

If you want to get into an Argentinians pants, you have to climb a tree!!

Other interesting things from the street...


A calavera is a representation of human skull made from either sugar or clay, which is used in the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead and the Roman Catholic holiday All Souls Day

If you fix the hostel computer, you get your own dorm with this view

I went to the park, the time is updated every day, with flowers.

The time here is to start Febfast, i could sign up, i could pester people to sponsor me, but they would probably say, ´Go back to having a beer, we preferred you having a beer´, so i am not going to do that

First of February,  whoever did the ´Domingo´ didn´t do a very good job!

Of course Che Guevara lived here, until it got too humid for him, he couldnt breathe very well as a kid, they moved up to Cordobra for the air

If you have problems breathing, just do what Che would do, after all he was pals with Castro, he was helping the Americans burn their fields by smoking Cigars, look at him!

This first place the Argentina flag was raised for the first time..

 The flag...

  Of course Messi is from here

 and....Maradona played here for two months
Hey, it still counts.......It still counts!!!!!
