Went for a walk in the mornign with soem of the other i to i volunteers that have arrived and walked down to Puerto MAdero, I had to rush back hrough San Telmo, only caught a glimpse of the markets. Got picked up for a coach to the Boca district. Made soem new friends on the way as we queued up to get into the Stadium. (Maradonna handed out the tickets on the bus to us). We got into the stadium incredibly early (2 hours early even= and it was packed but the atmosphere livened up pretty quickly. Luckilky we were undercover as the away fans were above spitting on the people below. Any way i nthe game watchign them play was failry exciting and complelety different at home. IT was if they were playign to look good rather then playign to win. Boca enede up loosing 3 2 to Valez Sarfiled, dissapointed home fans but I got to see plenty of goals (and plenty of cheating as well). Also happened to be the last oens let out of the stadium as well, but the coach was waiting for us and got back to the hostel. Met up with James the new i to i guy who arrived on friday and with some of the other for football went at the typical 22.00 argentianan time for dinner the El Gaucho restaruant. For a change i opted not to have steak.
