Paseo in the Park

Plaza de Mayo
Plaza de Mayo
After breakfast at the hotel, Kathy and I head out for more walking through the city parks, and this time we head for the Jardin Botanica. On the way we stop for a "cafe solo" at the Plaza del Carmen restaurant, and while there we hear surf music legend Dick Dale's recording of the American hit, "Miserlou", on the music system. Small world! We reach the Botanical Garden and it is a pleasantly shaded and cool park; we spend some time strolling through. After that we go to the Rose Garden Park (Rosedal). Bummer, because it is closed for maintenance today, but walking around the outside we decide it is the prettiest of the parks that we have seen so far. We put it on the list for next time. From here we walk to the MALBA, a new Latin American art museum. Before touring the museum we eat lunch in their outdoor cafe. It's a bit pricey, but the food is good, and we split a sandwich and salad plate with wine and beer. I note that the two main local beers seem to be Quilmes and Primitiva, and both are excellent. Kathy notes that the Malbec vino tinto is wonderful wherever we go and reasonably priced, too. Back at the hotel we catch up on emails, and then have a pleasant dinner at Cafe Arenales, which is just around the corner. We have an excellent full course meal, with drinks, desert, and cafe, and after dinner the owner salutes us with two glasses of Champagne, just to make the night perfect! Does he know he is helping us celebrate our last night in Buenos Aires?
