Day 4: Moving Around the City

The Presidential Palace in Buenos Aires
The Presidential Palace in Buenos Aires
• Free 2 hours guided tour of the Recoleta Cemetery, including Eva Peron’s crypt. Left the tour half way through, got the idea.
• It started to rain so we stopped for coffee at a café next to the cemetery. We found out later that it is a very well known historical café. Since it still rained we took a cab to the subway station line “C” to find out it is not working. Still raining, so we took another taxi to line “A” to find out it is not working either. By now we realized the whole subway system is down. Since it was still raining we stop for lunch and beer at yet another coffee shop. We basically got the worse combination – the continuous rain did not allow us to walk around for sightseeing, and the subway system being down forced us to move around by taxis.
• We discovered how to get to the market (Fruits & Vegetables Mercado) by bus. When we got there at 4:30pm it was closed for siesta, so we killed about half an hour at an internet café. The market turned to be a major disappointment, relatively very small and nothing much to see.
• By now, the subway system was operative again so we took the subway back to the hotel.
• We later found out that the subway system was down not because it broke down but rather due to a strike.
