Ugly 1

By Airport parkway, East midlands - pretty damn ugly. Apparently Ulaanbataar is the most ugly city on earth as under communist rule anything pretty was seen as frivolous. I wonder if its as ugly as these big chimneys?

My preparation for going to Buenos Aires so far. Dvd of Evita with my best friend Louise ( ) singing all the songs to me. I'm supposed to take a "little bit of star quality" to BA according to her. I don't know what she's on about as I have a cold so its more likely I'm going to take a little bit of quality snot there than look glamorous like Madonna did in that movie.
And anyway, I'm always a bit of a mess.
Hopefully temperatures of 27degrees (woohoo) will do me right! That's at least 20 degrees warmer than the UK at the moment, so it can't be bad.
I am expecting freckles.

I leave for Buenos Aires in just over a week

My first "outside Europe" trip of the year. I bought a Rough Guide today so i can get an idea where i'm going. Argentina. It wasn't on my "to do" list this year. But it became possible, and now i'm going. And i don't have a clue what to pack or what temperature it will be or what i'm going to do there. I've been so busy at work i really haven't had time to think about it. I intend to get there and jump right in to discovering what Argentinian culture is and seeing my old friend Chloe.
Need to remember to check my travel insurance.
I looked up to see if i have to get injections, and it says that i don't HAVE to have any but sometimes people get the yellow fever vaccination.
I've decided not to bother as i'll mainly be in the city.
I'm going to have to get a whole load of jabs i should think later in the year for Mongolia/China/Tibet etc. Nice.
