Day 14: Our final tour and journey home

It seems like only a day ago that we were all greeting each other in Toronto Pearson, excited to embark on this two week adventure of learning, growing, gaining new experiences and deepening of understanding of agriculture in the world that we live in - this global village. It is with equal anticipation that we get up this morning, pile our belongings on the bottom of our carriage and find our seats. But this anticipation is different. Armed with new information, perspectives and deepened friendships and relationships, we look forward to finding our way home to loved ones, family, friends and farms.

We start the day with a tour of the impressive city that is Buenos Aires, complete with visits to the Parliament buildings and local markets to hear all about the good, bad and ugly that is included in the history of Argentina. We also visited one of the most famous and beautiful cemeteries of the world. We saw lavish mausoleums - complete with marble statues and 24 carat gold engravings - and many a plaque dedicated to the lost loved ones of some of the wealthiest people to have lived and died in Argentina. One tomb of note was the rather simplistic and understated crypt of the late Eva Perron, the ever famous wife of General and President Juan Perron, who was portrayed in the musical “Evita” by Madonna.

Following our tour, we stopped one last time at a high end buffet restaurant....just in case we had not yet eaten enough of wonderful pasta, salads and high quality grilled steak over the past two weeks!

We fly home, uneventfully, as any good flight should be. We’re back to the great white north, greeted by loved ones and long drives home. There will be lots of time to marinate in all we’ve seen and learned, but for now, we’ll just focus on catching up on the smiles, hugs and handshakes we’ve missed over the past weeks.
