Pre-trip preparation

Good morning, folks. It's still over a month before I leave for Argentina. I got the inspiration for this blog from Neha, I'll go ahead and give the shout out to her now.
I am up to date on all my vaccinations before I go, although I'm still debating over malaria, and all these sites are saying that Iguazu Falls isn't all that risky an area, certainly not for one weekend. Do I really need to take meds for that? Oh yeah, all these health measures aren't for Buenos Aires, which is said to be every bit as hygienic as the US or Canada or Northwestern Europe. No, it's for one weekend we'll be spending at the legendary Iguazu Falls, one UNESCO's natural wonders of the world. I'm looking forward to t hat.
Meanwhile, I'm reading the biography of Eva Peron, aka Evita, and I really want to see the film with Madonna and Antonio Banderas, but I'm hard-pressed to find it anywhere. :(
I'm also currently looking forward to having Argentine wine, and quite possibly Argentine beef and leather. Cows are meant to eat grass, not grain, and the Argentines know this, and their beef tastes better for it, or so I hear. Hey, when in Rome...
Oh wait, but it's the tango that I'm really looking forward to.
That's all for now.
