Pampas grass against an Argentine sky. CÃ³rdoba.
Was Argentina fabulous?Â Yes.Â Am I exhausted after a sleepless overnight flight?Â Also.
I'll try to think of some things to write about the trip once I'm lucid.Â In the meantime I'd like to thank guest bloggers Scott and Eli for elevating the literary standards of the myrmecos blog during my absence.

If you encountered any Anochetus you could talk about the current Featured Genus over at the Ant Farm & Myrmecology Forum.
Hey MrILTA. I did encounter Anochetus around the northern province of Salta, commonly under stones, but I was always too busy with the Linepithema work to photograph, collect or otherwise do anything with it.
Welcome back Alex! We missed you. Hope you get some sleep now.
I hate that flight, and much as I'd love to go back to Argentina, am glad not to have had to travel that way lately. My recent flights to and from Ecuador were of the more civilized, daytime sort.
More important -- welcome back! Can't wait to read about the trip...
