… don’t know whether it was all the coffee i was drinking to keep me awake after landing at 05:00… but Buenos Aires does have a real buzz and bustle about the place..
have only explored the immediate area so far, i was so tired yesterday i just went out and got cash, sorted out a mobile phone and got my bearings a bit..
i’m staying in a fun little hostal called ‘the art factory’ which is on the edge of the san telmo district, it’s extremely funky with all the rooms and the walls throughout painted by different artists… each room having a theme… check out the link
they organize all sorts of activities and last night there was a barbecue on the terrace… great way to meet fellow travellers and get some good travel tips about best places to visit… on the agenda today is a tango class (i’m only watching though) .. and hopefully tomorrow off to see a ‘milonga’.. where the locals go and dance tango…
and for the more girly of my friends, i will most definitely be putting in a visit to the ‘Evita’ museum… gotta see all those dresses and shoes!!!
