... show. The cafe is the oldest in BA and we were sat in a very small theatre to listen to singing and dancing. The show didn't start until 11pm which seems pretty usual here- the restaurants don't open until 8pm so we're having to be a bit less greedy for our dinners! A real highlight amazingly was the Recoleta cemetery. This is in a rich part of town and contains the mausoleums of families dating back to the late eighteen hundreds.

BA Winning Us over with Wine

A travel blog entry by mhwalktheearth

... Its facade must be repainted about every 2 weeks due to the political graffiti on it. There are riot control barriers permanently stationed in front of Casa Rosada because one time protestors entered the building.
