Buenos Aires

Finally arrived at the hotel about 3:30 a.m. with a note from my cousins that we were meeting for breakfast at 7:30 and leaving about 8 a.m. for a tour of the city. I had missed the welcome dinner with our tour group and the tango lessons. Oh well, the way I figure it, at least I didn't get a chance to embarrass myself with the absolute inability to dance! I much prefer watching the tango anyway.

Buenos Aires is a very nice city as cities go (nothing against cities, I'm just a country girl). We got to on the old wooden subway which is being taken out of commission in the next few months. So sad to see history disappear, so it was very nice to get to see it. Learned a lot about the history of the city and the country as well. Being Americans from the U.S., we don't really have a feel for the upheaval and unrest that has been the history of Argentina. How remarkably resilient Argentinians are!

We visited Caminito which is an outdoor museum / art show where local artists show off their talents. We also visit the Recoleta District of Buenos Aires and the cemetery where Eva Perron is buried.

This evening, we had dinner at the home of local family to discover local food and get a chance to talk to a local couple about life in Buenos Aires and in Argentina. As difficult has things have been at times for these folks, they love their country and were very happy to share its history and culture.
