Puerto Iguazu-Buenos Aires, Argentina to Lima, Peru: What a Day

I have no pictures today because I was a bit preoccupied trying to get to the right place at the right time.  Let me explain...I left for the Puerto Iguazu airport at 8:15am.  I got there half an hour later, waited in a 25-minute line to check in, and then the power in the airport went out.  After I finally checked in, the power went out again, at which point they delayed my flight.  This process was repeated several times, but I finally got to Buenos Aires around 2:30pm, only three hours later than expected.  Since I had to change airports, I immediately tried to book my shuttle bus, at which point I learned there were massive protests today in Buenos Aires, so the buses weren't running.  So then, I took a car--well, I took a car halfway, because we had to switch cars in the middle because there was a huge accident (in addition to protests) in Buenos Aires.  An hour and a half later, I arrived at the other Buenos Aires airport, where there was a two-hour wait in a comfy chair with free wifi.  Five and a half hours and one long taxi ride later (let me tell you, traffic in Lima is INSANE!), I am safe and sound in my Lima hostel.  Gotta love South American travel :-)
