Duo goes to Argentina!

Argentina is a marvellous country, best known for its steak, dulce de leche, football, tango and landscapes. Because of Argentina's 200th birthday, Duo decided to go.

His trip started in Buenos Aires, also known as "The Paris of South America" Duo There, he went to La Boca, the tango Mecca. Duo Some days later, Duo flew north to the Iguazu Falls, one of the seven nature wonders. Duo To learn some indigenous languages, he went to Jujuy, were he saw the Cerro de los Siete Colores Duo In his way to Patagonia, he stopped at Mendoza, were he enjoyed one of the world's best malbecs Duo In Bariloche, he asked directions in German to go to the Cerro Campanario, and got delighted by the view Duo In Gaiman Welsh-speaking farmers told him to go to the Perito Moreno, was he did Duo Lastly, he went to Colon Theatre, believed to be the best opera house as regards acoustic. Duo There he met some of the most prestigious Argentines alive, such as Pope Francis, Maxima of the Netherlands, Messi, Maradona, Del Potro, etc.

At the end, he decided to brush up his Spanish for his next holidays (in 2018, with the Youth Olympic Games) and to add Guarani and Quechua.

thanks for the correction,at first i had it in imperfect subjunctive and then i changed it to infinitive.puedes explicarme porque no es corecto usar el subjuntivo en esta instacia?i thought that phrases that express feelings use the subjunctive or the infinitive when the subject is the same.im guessing thats because it is preterite and there is no preterite in the subjunctive

5/3/2016, 7:09:50 PM

It is either "Estoy muy feliz de que decidí" or "Estoy muy feliz de haber decidido"
