Day 2 Buenos Aires

Thursday, April 16, 2009
Sights around town...
Ok, you'll have to forgive me...I didn't sleep well on the plane, nor did I get a good night's sleep last night also. We took a three hour walking tour today (which turned into a 1 hr walking/2 hr driving), so of course, I passed out in the car, and also got a little car sick. I have pictures but hardly any information. If Randy remembers, he'll update me and I'll put more info on this post...this is Plaza de Mayo

This is our guide Luciano...he was really smart and gave us A LOT of info, I feel bad for falling asleep!

This is where I perked up...I really wanted to go to Caminito St. in a part of town called La Boca. I heard even though it's a touristy area, it's not very safe. I was excited when he took us here!

This is the River in La Boca, I forgot the name and when I googled it, everything was in Spanish! I think it's River Plate...?

Here is the Recoleta Cemetery where Eva Peron was put to rest. It is the most beautiful cemetery I've ever been to.

I really should've been listening to our guide but I decided to take pictures of cats and cobwebs instead...sorry Luciano! :)

Here is Eva Peron's gravesite. I would've taken more pictures but there wasn't much room and a lot of people started coming around...

We ate empanadas for dinner...Jalna, our empanadas didn't look or taste nearly as good as these! We gotta try again!!

Wow Les. I feel like I'm there with you. I love the colors! And that cemetery is unreal. What's the temperature there? How can the empanadas be better than yours? Yours was awesome.

Les, these are great pictures. I love how the houses are painted, so colorful. The cemetery is like a little town, huh. Houses lined up along the street. Very interesting!!

Les said...

It's been quite warm, unfortunately...I was hoping it was gonna be in the 50s and 60s but it's been about 70 degrees the whole time. I guess I can't complain, huh? OMG jalna, the empanadas were YUMMY!!!

Les said...

Betty - I loved all the colors also! The cemetary was very interesting, I could spend all day in there...

Hey Les, the pics are really nice. I like that place with the colors too! Cheap eats!! The cemetary is really nice. That's the first i've ever seen too!! Mick and Mattie are doing okay! Poor Mick, she always look so sad! Always picking on Mattie b/c he's always bugging her!!

Nice photos! Such a great photo opportunity, I am Jellos. Have fun!

Les said...

Thanks Robyn! We see so many dogs running around here, it's making us sad cause we miss our kids...

Les said...

Erick -- Jellos is always best when served cold...hee hee hee...this is a great place to take pics but I'll give you some advice before you come: LEARN SPANISH. Crap...I feel sooooo stupid here, can't even order from McDonalds!
