Travel time: December 2006 - March 2007  |  by Carolina Martinez

Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires mi querido . . . what can I say about BA except if you haven´t been there YOU JUST GOTTA GO! Everything is so good and so cheap and so cool . . .

Our first night in BA was Jo and Bob´s last night in SA so we had to have a fancy pants dinner and drink to mark the occasion!

That´s the way!

That´s the way!

BYE GUYS! THANKS FOR THE RIDE!

So, back down to 3!

In amongst all the shopping and eating we were doing, we managed to go and see some touristy stuff as well . . .

The must see thing in BA is the Recoleta cemetary. This place is OUTTA CONTROL! I´ve never seen so many over-the-top tombs in my life. These Argentines really go to town. The other pull for Recoleta, is that the incredibly famous (or infamous depends which way you look at it) Evita Peron is buried here.

Yes, this is a grave

La Boca is another ¨must do¨ attraction. Partly because of the soccer stadium and Maradona´s famed Boca Junior team and also beacause La Boca is a really cool little wharf barrio where Tango is said to have originated.

San Telmo is also a cool barrio with tango, cobbled streets and millions of antique shops.

Unfortunately, Julius has had to leave for home. It is now just Curly and I against the big bad world. You´ll hear more from us but things have been a lot less interesting now that MeJulie is gone . . .
