South America Day 1

Well day 1 is nearly over and we haven't even arrived yet. By the time the time the flight lands we will have been traveling 24 hours from the time we left home, though some others in the group will be well into their second day as they have travelled up from other parts of the country. As usual although we are nearest the airport we are the last to arrive.

So off to Madrid which is very overcast but matters very little as we have 6 hours to spend in the airport. Some airport it is though, two new beautiful terminals with plenty of shops and bars to while away the time.

Then finally it's time to board our flight just after midnight for our 12 hour flight to Buenos Aires. We arrive bright and early in BA at 9am travel weary but ready for our adventure.
