Buenos Aires Travel Blog› entry 1 of 1 › view all entries
I presume it didn't matter as there was so much Italian & Spanish influence in Argentina. I didn't know what to expect but for sure not another Spain! The moment I stepped out of the airport it hit me.....as we drove along the streets it hit me...I was in Spain!
My expectation (obviously I didn't pay attention as my friend had planned this trip) was totally different. I expected ethnicity, but it was very caucasian all around. As I said very Spanish. We had to try the famous Argentinian beef of course, I'm not a big meat eater, imagine my shock when the smallest steak was a dinner plate size one! We just sat there looking at the huge amount of meat on our table & looked at it from every angle thinking how the hell were we suppose to eat it...LOL!........was hilarious, we actually looked at other tables to make sure that we had the smallest one. Food was cheap & worth the money but portions were big(by Asian standards).
We arrived on Christmas Eve & managed to secure a table for dinner, a package thing with drinks and a few courses. Very good food & definitely cheap, you can eat at quite fancy restaurants for less than US30 per person.
My favourite place in Buenos Aires is the cemetery...macabre I know but I simply love the structures & layout...LOLLL!!! Thus the many pictures..........
