hey Gayle and welcome.
I suggest you do wear clothes. Argentina is somewhat of a conservative country and some would probably be offended if you did not wear any. The colors may very.

Of course, I am just kidding. Some of the answer to your question depends on where in Argentina are you traveling. If you go far south it could still be cold whereas Buenos Aries a light jacket and spring clothing like you would wear in most parts of the US in the spring would be sufficient. I am not much on the colors thing, maybe you can get some help from some of the ladies here on that.

Roberto and I were working on an October get together for folks here but I may not be able to do it. It is the middle of college football season. If it comes off maybe your family can join us.

Hasta luego

Cute Tom

Thanks for the info. We will be staying in Belgrano but doing a little bit of traveling around.

We would love to have an October get together if we can arrange dates. I just bought the Rosetta Stone language tapes and I am going to ATTEMPT to learn some Latin Spanish!

Hasta luego!

A coincidence, I have just started studying with the Rosetta Stone tape. It seems like a good program.

Roberto set up a thread concerning the October get together but I lost track of it.

Hola Roberto, where is that thread por favor.

Ah, yes Tom. It's here in Tours and Attractions. May be I should move somewhere else... Hopefully, all paperwork for the adoption of my step-daughter will be ready by then and we will be able to travel.

Hi Gail. Interesting you asked about colors. When Tom wrote that they dress conservatively, he is accurate. Even down to colors. They wear mostly neutral colors--black, brown, beige, olive green, etc. Once in a while you will see red, however . . . a red knit shirt with dark slacks, a red jacket. If I dress accordingly, no one knows I am not Argentina (until I open my mouth!) Arial

Argentina is a very fashion conscious country, so it doesnīt matter what color you use, the point is how you wear it.... it's all about attitude!

Learning Spanish will be helpful, I took classes at a school I found on the internet amigospanish.com. Donīt forget to go shopping, there are very reasonable prices and you can't miss them!... (of course my husband prefered to stay at the hotel, but you can shop alone, it's easy and most sales people at the shopping malls speak English!)

Deb!
