This Is Who Picked Me Up Hitch-hiking in Patagonia Today

A dad, his little girl, and their dog “Cookie.”

The little girl had never seen an iphone before so we took a bunch of pictures together with Cookie, which made her giggle a lot.

We didn’t speak a word to each other, which makes this all the more amazing. They, like many folks down here, can’t understand my Spanish since I haven’t nailed the Argentinean accent yet. Moments like this make you realize how much you don’t really need words.

p.s. I’m sure my parents are reading this. Don’t worry – I don’t let men pick me up when I hitch-hike unless there’s a woman or a kid with them.
