Saying Goodbye

Posted: November 26, 2011 in Argentina 2011

While in Argentina, we had the best guides imaginable. Sergio, Ignacio and Sebastia chaperoned us and guided us and did so much for us to make this trip so successful.

Thank you Sergio!! Go Estudiantes!!

And thank you Ignacio. Ignacio stayed close to the players and took phenomenal care of them.

We’ve said goodbye to La Plata, The Country and briefly toured Buenos Aires. One stop we made was at the City of the Dead. This cemetery is a remarkable collection of mausoleums built as a city. There is no green space. Only the wealthy and powerful Argentineans are buried here.

Packed

Posted: November 26, 2011 in Argentina 2011

Falling behind posting pictures… So a quick update. Bus picks us up in an hour and we pick up the team at the country. Then off to Buenos Aires for lunch, shopping and site seeing. Flight is tonight and we’ll be home tomorrow.

Yesterday, we attended a game Gymnasia v Deportivo Merlo. I know I’m spelling Gymnasia wrong – sorry, I’ll fix it when I get the name right. Also got to the Estudiantes museum and club house. A very formal feel with cafe, piano bar and all their trophies.

Black Friday

Posted: November 25, 2011 in Argentina 2011

Great morning for the boys. Drove to CA Independiente in Buenos Aires for their match. Florida fell 0-3 (0-1 half) against Independiete’s ’92 team. Our opponent also included several players from their first teams’s reserves for evaluation purposes. Twenty four year old Ariel was a beast.

Shopping later today and then we watch a match.

Magic Show

Last night, the coaches were at a dinner show snacking on Tapas and enjoying a magic show. It was very well done. And Jaime got pulled up on stage!
