So it's back on the road and towards Buenos Aires(BA), we take a couple of days to get there stopping at campsites in Viedma and Azul for a night each where we chill out and fish a little.
We get into BA during a big rain storm and check in to our hostel. Then it's time to see a bit of BA, head into the main shopping district, across Avenida 9 de Julio which as a main street through town has 17 lanes, pretty impressive. Have a look at some shops before heading back to hostel and meeting up with everyone to go out for dinner at Grants, an all you can eat restaurant. Man the food here was wicked. Am pretty sure that the Argies do the best lamb and beef anywhere!!
The next day a few of decide to head across to Colonia, Uruguay for the day.
Next day a few of us head off and do a tour of Boca Stadium, home of the Boca Juniors one of the most famous Argentinian teams also where Maradona started off.
After getting in in the wee hours of the morning I sleep the day away and do some emails and stuff before heading out to San Telmo for dinner.
The next day Bev and I go for a bit of a walk, we head to La Recoleta Cemetary, the Cemetery includes graves of some of the most influential and important persons of Argentina. Most notably Eva Peron(Evita) of 'Don't cry for me Argentina' fame. It's quite flash and inly the flashest people are buried there. Then it's off to the Japanese Gardens before heading back to hostel. A couple of us then head in to San Telmo again to check out the markets, have a feed at a great wee parilla. A few of us try and go out for a Thai feed but that's closed so try Indian but again that's closed too. So have an Italian feed and head back and chil out at the hostel bar for the night.
