Next few days pretty quiet, so a joint entry.
Very relaxing day, did some internet stuff and cleaned the flat ready for Sunday checkout. Had a nice 2 hour lunch at a restobar down the road, watching the tennis and drinking beer, so very nice indeed! Finished off with cake and coffee at our local cafe then rang Melissa´s sister tonight for her birthday.
Last day of real sightseeing today, so went to Tigre - a town on the delta about 25km north of the city. Took the Tren de la Costa, which turned out to be jam-packed full and not particularly interesting (and hence not good value at 10 times the price of the normal train!). Got to Tigre at about 11.
First day of our new GAP trip today. Checked out of our flat and into the hotel around midday, then met the group in the evening for dinner. There are 11 of us plus the guide, and all seem very nice. Went down to DesNivel in San Telmo for dinner as a group, and passed an enjoyable couple of hours with good food and cheap, drinkable wine!
