San Isidro Station
We drove with the â€śTren de la Costaâ€ť (Train of the Coast). We left the Delta and drove across nice villages and scenery. After 4 stops, we finally arrived to San Isidro. This is a small town which has a fair. You were supposed to find the cheapest prices there. Actually I wasnâ€™t in the mood for shopping, what? Well, I meant souvenirs, hahaha. San Isidro is really cute. The station is just next to the mall and in the second level the fair takes place. But if you go down and cross the street you will find the real fair.
The mall was full of tourists. Almost all the tour operators bring their customers here. Mmm, my mom and me decided to take a walk around and crossed the street in order to see the park, the fair ďż˝" it was a Hippie one ďż˝" and the cathedral. We were almost arriving to the Cathedral which was in the top of a hill when we realized it was almost time to go and we didnâ€™t want to loose the bus.
It wouldnâ€™t have mattered if we were in the city and didnâ€™t have to catch a flight that day later. So better going back. Also I was wearing heals, uffff. I didnâ€™t want to pack the boots I was supposed to wear when we flight back to Lima ;)

In order to go back to Buenos Aires city we drove with the tour bus. We crossed Maipu, which is another city where the house of the president is located. The government house is in Buenos Aires city and the presidentâ€™s residence is in Maipu, which is just 30min away from Buenos Aires. Nevertheless, the president go to Buenos Aires daily by helicopter!!! Wow, isnâ€™t that crazy! Haha. I should say that all the buildings and houses there were really beautiful.
quiet and beautiful streets at Maipu
Arriving to the city we were able to see the Riverâ€™s Stadium. River is Boca Juniorsâ€™ rival. While we were getting closer to Buenos Aires and going into the city I saw a part of the city I have never seen. A poor part, called: â€śVillas Miseriasâ€ť. These are the poor areas, like the Favelhas in Rio or Pueblos Jovenes in Lima. And just crossing the train lines, you are able to see the nice buildings and houses of Retiro. What a contrast! Sad but trueâ€¦
Well, but this wouldnâ€™t make me thing less about Buenos Aires. Buenos Aires is great!
