We returned from the field in Patagonia to the Argentine capital, Buenos Aires. At about 13 million people in the metro area, BA is the largest city in the country, and third largest in modern Gondwana (behind Sao Paulo and Cairo). There are dinosaurs in Buenos Aires, but only in museums, as the fossils were found in other parts of the country- mostly Patagonia. We spent one day at the Natural Science Museum, or MACN, on the edge of Palermo.
I can’t wait for Archaeology Weekend (April 14 – 15). It’s REALLY going to be special. BUT! Before we get there, let me tell you a story!
This morning, the ROM’s Maya High Priest hopped on the GO-Train giving commuters a surprise welcome with their morning coffees. Promoting the final days of Maya: Secrets of their Ancient World before it closes on April 9, 2012, this was a fun event for everyone (and a chilly one for the our High Priest)!
Last stop...Union Station!
Maya-inspired activities take over the ROM from March 10 to 18

ChocoSol Traders is a small, ecological and inter-community initiative between farmers in Chiapas, Mexico, sustainable technologists based out of Oaxaca City, Mexico and horizontal traders and chocolatiers in Toronto.
