Day 1 - Buenos Aires - Museo Argentino de Ciencias

I'm now in Buenos Aires having arrived yesterday. I was fortunate to have the same flight as Casey Holliday (although he was bumped up to first class!) so we travelled together the first day here. Our first day was spent at the Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales (MACN) with me looking at aetosaur skulls (courtesy of Dra. Julia Desojo) and Casey looking at some crocodylian skulls. Had an energetic lunch with Julia and Oliver Rauhut (who was also visiting).  Here is a photo of Julia and Oliver in Julia's office trying to work on some research despite our repeated intrusions and partaking of the local beverage of choice.

Beautiful skull of the aetosaur Neoaetosauroides engaeus.



Day 2: Intense aetosaur discussion with Julia Desojo and examination of a new taxon she is proposing.
