I guess it was good then that we didnt go that night. They added an extra flight the next morning (usually the flight leaves at night and you arrive there in the morning (which is great because you dont waste any time) and alas, we got business class!!! Ernesto killed time by working on a "SUDOKI" puzzle for 8 of the 10 hour flight, i made lots of jewelry and my parents read! It did not suck!
Since we arrived in the evening, after checking in to our hotel we went for a stroll on Florida street and stopped in a cafe for drinks. It was past 1am and the streets were packed. Mom and dad were wondering, what are all these people doing out at this hour?? Ahh the big city, I love it
Below, the awesome Recoleta Cemetery where EVITA is buried. All you have to do is follow any tour guided group and they will lead you through the maze right to her grave. This is the hotest boliche (nightclub) in BA. It's called Opera Bay and was designed after the Sydney Opera House. It is right along the river in Puerto Madero and doesnt even get started until 2am....but when you consider that people dont eat dinner until 11pm, it makes sense. We did not make it this trip!
Also in Puerto Madero is the "Puente de la Mujer" (Woman's Bridge) designed by famous architect Santiago Calatrava.
Oh! I love this place. El Ateneo is a bookstore that was once an opera house. It is so beautiful! They have a cafe inside and there are always a lot of people hanging out...just as I do at Borders!
We also met Stuart Brown from LA.....He was a fellow non-rev and he and his friend were on their 2nd night of denied boarding. They were on buddy passes....this is the chance you take....for a ticket in business class for under $500......well worth it...thats me talking though, they were ready to get home......He was so cool, he has been around the world, so we had a lot to chat about.......too bad I never did get his email....... would've been nice to meet up again. If you are reading this Suart...contact me!!!!
We all ended up getting on the flight the next day, and arrived ATL in the early morning. Mom and dad headed back to Ohio and Nester and I, straight to the office. No I didnt go home to shower, it just seemed like too much hassle....I was right there. Of course I got some shit from my co-workers. They were calling me "Stinky"and and writing complaints about me to my boss.....another reason I love Delta....the fun people I work with everyday!

I have to say this was one of my best weekends in Atlanta!! Kelli came down on Thursday and we had such a great time!! I am a cool aunt I have to say!!! We did girly stuff like get our nails done and go shopping. "$20 for a pedicure?" Its funny that even though she was given $80 to blow by her parents, she was still cheap!! We joked about that all weekend! Even when she was sitting in the airport on Monday with 4 quarters in her pocket waiting to get on a flight home. Seriously, I was going to give her some money for breakfast but I forgot!
Brian's friends from Asheville, Greg Cynthia and their daughter Azalea were in Altlanta for a bead show. They run a company Green Girls Studios making beautiful creations...we ended hanging out with them 3 days in a row, I love making new friends!!!
On Saturday we ended up taking the train downtown to a concert in Centenial Park .........
yes we were there........
.........and guess who was there??
Yes....she's driving now.................
