Hello, my friends from around the world, and let me be one of the first to wish you a very Happy New Year. We will be celebrating for 24 straight hours as each time zone enters the new year. The first time zone which is UTC (Universal time)+12 will enter the new year at 7am Eastern time. We are in Uruguay right now which is UTC+3
We will be switching between the following platforms where we will posting, making reels and shorts, and going live for the next 24 hours to share the excitement and celebrations from around the world.
We are now in Montevideo Uruguay where we will be exploring for the next month to show you what to do and see here.
It is great to be in Montevideo for one month to capture what makes Montevideo the most magical place on the planet that you need to visit. While we had a great time in Buenos Aries capturing images for our digital nomadic friends around the world, we are attempting to explore Tango, which of course is very much associated with Argentina, but now we moved to Montevideo Uruguay where the dance and culture are still very much alive here and we intend to explore them completely over the next month here in every small pic we take to selfies to highlight locals whenever we can.
The architecture is amazing in Montevideo and needs a lot of time spent taking pictures that should be displayed in a fine art gallery and worth the energy to edit and enhanced these images of Uruguay. We plan on exploring this country to learn what you need to explore and do and see when you visit Uruguay.

We hope you had a great Merry Christmas, and do not forget very soon we will do our around-the-world celebration for the new year where we celebrate every hour with those living in the time zone crossing over into the new year.
We travel the world to enjoy those special moments in time that you want to remember forever. The spirit of football and tango are some of what makes Argentina so very special. The people are friendly and they are very passionate about both, and it is a very emotional time here as you can imagine. We see people celebrating in the streets by the millions. There are no riots or destruction of any property, and everyone is safe to roam the city and make some noise of course.
Yes, we see many enjoying some drinks as they walk around, but we do not see any overly intoxicated groups, but people having fun and a major festival for sure is underway and this should last many days. Some stores are closed as their employees are out celebrating with others, and some are concerned about being overrun by locals trying to buy items, especially alcoholic drinks. Additionally, the local subway is shut down as it would quickly be overloaded and not safe. However, no one seems to mind as there are many streets to walk and sing with others to celebrate such a major victory.
It will take some time to process and sort the photos from this trip and hope you check out the Sir John online fine art photography site www.sirjohnphoto.com to see what we are talking about. This place is amazing and as digital nomads, we will return as often as we can. In a few days, we are heading to Montevideo Uruguay to prepare for the carnival there next month, which is the oldest in the world. We move one month per country and it works out fantastic for us.

We are enjoying life in Buenos Aries Argentina during the world championship as they head for the finals on Sunday.
It is a very exciting time to be a digital nomad in Buenos Aries Argentina in South America as Argentina has made it to the finals in the World Cup competition. As you can imagine everyone here is very excited and passionate about their chances now of winning the championship. Everyone in town is glued to a tv screen somewhere. Everyone is wearing the national blue and white colors and their favorite player Messi is prominent in everything across town, as well as Vamos Argentina sings across the city.
The finals will be on Sunday with their biggest challenger to date, the winner of the last World Cup competition, France. It will be a massive game with more people watching this game than anything ever. We had no idea we would be in Argentina at such a fantastic time in history. We have so many photos taken here that it will be years before we can process everything taken here.
I hope you enjoy hearing from us as we travel the world as digital nomads and capture special moments in time that make for some great images you will be proud to display on your walls. Be sure to subscribe to this blog for updates

We are researching Argentina and capturing the heart and soul of this amazing city, especially the tango vibe. There is so much to see and do here with so much amazing architecture. There will be much more to follow as we hunt out and discover more about Argentina.
