Well, the end of the trip is coming at last. We fly out of Buenos Aires at 9:40 pm tonight, but we still have several hours to enjoy in the city. Kathy is interested in knitting, so we take a cab to an area of many yarn shops on Avenida Scalabrini Ortiz. The yarn is beautiful, and the price is quite low, so Kathy buys enough for sweaters and mittens for the family. I can hardly wait for Christmas. Then we go by taxi to the Evita Museo at Gutierrez and Lafinir streets. We view video footage of her massive funeral celebration in 1952, as well as displays of the history of her life and many of her dresses and gowns. We walk back toward our hotel for our last leisurely meal outdoors in Buenos Aires and treat ourselves to ice cream (helado) before heading to the airport for our evening flight back to Miami, Chicago, and then Grand Rapids, Michigan. We will miss you Argentina; Adventure Life has made our tours effortless, and we have had enough free time to make the trip our own. Thank you to them and to every one of our wonderful tour guides. And don't cry for us, Argentina, for we will return!
