Namaste Buenos Aires
From India to the 'End of the World'
Buenos Aires here we come!
Completely exhausted from two 15 hour flights, but raring to go, we walked out of the “Departures” terminal where an elderly man (our transfer guide) greeted us and escorted us to our hotel Casa Las Canitas in the hip and posh neighborhood of Las Canitas. We had decided to spend a day in the city prior to our tour, to break journey and explore the mesmerizing Buenos Aires on our own. After a quick check-in, we headed to Campo Bravo, a restaurant in ‘the barrio’ (Spanish for neighborhood) where we enjoyed some local cuisine.
The young Latino hostess, who was bemused at encountering two ‘vegetarianos’ in beef country, took great efforts to help us make a selection. It was our first hour in the city and we could already get a glimpse of the congeniality of the local people.
A sumptuous candle light dinner with a glass of ‘vino’ was a perfect end to a very tiring day.
