Pia Glacier on the Mare Australis cruise (Julia Kocubinski)
We woke this morning and decided to explore a few new parts of Buenos Aires. We took a taxi to La Boca, probably the most colorful part of any city I have ever seen. The buildings were beautiful, full of reds, pinks, yellows greens. There were artists everywhere, people dancing on the streets, and tons of tourists! Definitely worth seeing, but you have to take a taxi right to La Boca. We wandered even just a block or two away from this beautiful street, but it really didn't feel like a safe place for us to be wandering. In the afternoon we wandered in the Recoleta district, had a good Italian dinner and then headed to the airport for our 30 hours of traveling that we had ahead. A long and fantastic vacation! We did a lot and got to see so much. I just hope that I can get back to do some trekking in Torres del Paine, or to spend some more time exploring the very different and fun neighborhoods of Buenos Aires.
