I Hunger For the Argentine

Okay, I dug deep for this quote - it's from the Annie soundtrack! I didn't want to go straight for Andrew Lloyd Weber - I'll need that for a later post!

Doug and I arrived safely in Buenos Aires on December 26th and have been living large since! The first few days were dedicated to the wedding that brought us here, but today was our first entirely free day. We walked around the neighborhood of San Telmo, saw the smallest house in Buenos Aires, and chatted with both our taxi drivers about Obama. Apparently he's the popular choice. Tomorrow we are taking it to another country and doing a day trip to Uruguay, which will be really cool. I'm taking tons of photos, of course, so there will be plenty to post when I get home!

La Iglesia de Pilar

The wedding we photographed took place in this church. Beautiful, huh? I won't even begin to delve into the wedding details because we'd be here all day. Suffice to say, it was unlike any wedding I've ever attended or photographed. The ceremony started at 8:30p, although you were expected to be at the church around 8p, and the reception went until 6a. If you can believe it, Doug and I were there for the whole thing - no napping and no caffeine (on my part). It's now 8:45p in Buenos Aires and things are just getting started! I hope everyone had wonderful holidays and I hope you all are excited for 2009!
