Buenos Aires (13.03.2014 - 20.03.2014)

For our week in Buenos Aires we rented a flat over AirBnB. We had a lovely apartment in the middle of the Palermo district, famous for its many little shops, boutiques, restaurants, bars and cafes. No crisis here as far I could tell from the prices!

As with every city trip we ended up walking quite some distances which my new 8$ shoes weren't really up to...

  • Strolled through the Sunday market in San Telmo, having everything from silly souvenirs to junk and antiques
  • Visited the prison museum about the different penal institutions in Argentina, imaging passing your sentence in the old days down in Ushuaia, brrrr!
  • Saw the huge Recoleta cemetery, but missed the grave of Eva Peron ;)
  • Watched the tango dancers in the street
  • Walked around Retiro
  • Spent hours shopping in Palermo, at least the shops here have comfy seats for waiting boyfriends!

Because we where running out of cash we decided to hop over to Uruguay before heading to the Iguazu waterfalls. So we boarded the ferry to Colonia del Sacramento and left Argentina behind us for now.

Over there!
