Right here. In an attempt to get back up to date, we skipped over Rome to bring us nearly back to real time. The galleries from our trip in Rome two weeks ago are posted below.

After two and a half months traveling through Central and South America, we have successfully completed the first (and shorter) leg of our trip around the world. We are about to embark on the second part, which will prove more difficult, and perhaps more frustrating at times, but surely just as interesting.
Thus far, language has not been a handicap. In fact, our ability to communicate with ease has been our best asset on the trip. Though we are experiencing new cultures, regional dialects, climates, and landscapes, we have always been able to get along quite well with locals in either Spanish or Portuguese, which has given us an advantage to the average traveler with just a phrase book and a map.

We’re recovering from a series of missteps and setbacks last week (stolen wallet for Thushan, a 24-hour deep intestinal spring cleaning for Brian), and recently began uploading some of the “lost” posts. In the past 10 days, we’ve left the Island of Ometepe in Nicaragua, explored the cities, coasts and forests of Costa Rica, and crossed the equator to the southern hemisphere and Buenos Aires, Argentina. Below is a quick run down of the past couple days and the respective galleries if you’ve missed anything…

Buenos Aires, Argentina – 02/05
Despite the sweltering heat, we took the day to wander two neighborhoods, Congreso and Microcentro and take in the hustle and bustle of downtown B.A.
Seriously, this around the world ticket is for you. Over the next eight months, we’re going to be trekking through six continents, more than thirty nations, tens of thousands of miles – and we’re packing you in our bags for the ride. Stuffed in our packs, we’re bringing three cameras, two laptops and a video camera, enabling us to beam back the trip to you, in real time, on a near daily basis.
You’ll be exploring the hustle and bustle of Mexico City streets, dancing to bhangra beats in India, feeling the parched soils of the Middle East and sunbathing on the mega beaches of Brazil. And you’ll be able to experience all of these diverse countries and cultures with nary a worry of Montezuma’s Revenge or trippy malaria pills. (more…)
Trading the gilded dome of the Massachusetts State House, for the massive Mexican flag of the Zocalo, we barrel past more than two thousand miles, four cities, two flights, a new year’s party and 24 hours of non-stop travel to begin the long jaunt. Take a flight with us and head to Mexico City in today’s photo gallery, no ticket needed…
The first month of our journey around the globe will take us to five of the eight countries that lie south of the U.S. and north of the South American continent. After landing in Mexico’s capital on New Years Day, we will travel by land through Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica, skipping over Belize and Panama. The daily itinerary of our trip will depend partly on what we happen to find in the places we go, but tentatively, the plan is as follows… (more…)
