Buenos Aires was a lovely introduction to the region of South America. When we arrived and drove to our hotel, it reminded me of Spain and I just liked it. My husband did not sleep during our thirteen hour flight but I did so I did not suffer with jet lag like he did. He wanted to sleep and spent the afternoon doing this. This gave me time to rest up even more. The only thing we manage to do on our first day in Buenos Aires, was have our Argentina Steak Dinner, which was what I wanted for our first meal. It did not disappoint, we went to a restaurant called Piegari Carnes, where we both ordered a 400g rib eye and it was delicious.
The next morning, we did a city tour and started at the Plaza De Mayo, where Pride was being celebrated.
We went into the cathedral, then found the Pink House.
We then drove to the La Boca district, and the stadium. But there was a match that afternoon, so the people were started to close the roads, and then the rain started. And it was a heavy rain, that lasted over three hours.
We then drove back to see the Tower Of The English, and we made plans to come back and see this the next day on our free day. We then drove to the Recoleta Cemetery to see Eva Peron resting place.
What surprised me was how small Buenos Aires actually is. If I was not suffering with rheumatoid arthritis I think we could have seen everything in two days.
Our free day started with a short trip to the local supermarket, which is something I just love doing when visiting a new place. We walked through the neighbourhood and the buildings were beautiful.
We kept commenting to each other, how Spanish it was and we are both big fans of Spain. I have run out of cleanser even though I had thought I had brought enough and I also wanted to try how Cadbury’s tasted over here in South America.
We then spent some time walking around the city just taking in sites as we came across them. I liked the university, the newer buildings and the Tower Of The English.
This was a lovely visit to Argentina, I was surprised how much I liked it. I am so glad that we decided to come this year, it was touch and go if we going too. I would recommend visiting to anyone. I would love one day to return.
