Going To Argentina!

Rachel Stein

Dear Avigayil, You’re never going to believe this! My Bubby called me yesterday and the news she told me made my day, my week, maybe even my whole year! She said, “Huvi, I’ve dreamed of going back to Argentina for many years now.” Bubby is from Argentina. “So now that both of our birthdays are coming up (did I ever tell you that Bubby and I have the same birthday?), would you like to go with me and see the country where I was born and grew up?”

Dear Avigayil,After a long plane flight and settling into our hotel, Bubby and I went to see Igazu Falls. We walked on a long, curvy wooden bridge that brought us closer and closer to the falls. Have you ever been toNiagara Falls? Well,IgazuFallsmakesNiagara Fallslook small — can you imagine? The falls are huge and towering and beautiful. But don’t take my word for it. Look at the picture, then close your eyes and pretend you’re here with me.Love,Ahuva
