Tagadas: For some inexplicable reason, they are SUPER popular in South America. I hate those rides, it doesn't make sense why one would spend money to end up with a stranger sitting on your lap. Or does it?


I guess that would depend on the stranger.

I'm a culture ho

That Wild Mouse road is the sort of thing from my nightmares, I would never take it as I would be throwing up the entire drive!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

USA is blessed with 2 of the most amazing roads I've ever seen: I-15 to Vegas and Pacific Coast Highway. Those two, along with the route from Chile to Argentina are the holy trinity of amazing roads in the world.

I wrote the book about donkeys!

Neverland - Buenos Aires, Argentina


Buenos Aires 049.jpg
I decided to fly from Cordoba to Buenos Aires, since the ticket price was so cheap (around US$100). Buenos Aires is one of the most beautiful cities I've visited, and I try to go there at least once a year.

The architecture in Buenos Aires is amazing, the streets are large, people are very polite and helpful, the transportation system works perfectly and it's a very safe place to visit. It reminds me a lot of NYC (besides the polite people :-) )

Neverland is a small indoor park inside Shopping Abasto. In South America is very common to see those small arcade/parks inside malls. Most of them, though, don't have rides for teens/adults, just some kiddie ones.

Neverland is bigger than those small parks, and it occupies a large area of Shopping Abasto.
