While Giorgio's House was being renovated, we stayed with friends of one of the hostel owner, Ana. Claudia and Fernando were our most excellent hosts. They welcomed us into their apartment in a residential neighborhood of BA. We felt safe walking around at night. There are plenty of restaurantsand grocery stores nearby. The apartment was spotless, the WiFi strong, the water hot and the hospitality top notch. We left feeling like we had family in BA. On our last night, Fernando and Claudia cooked up the BEST empanadas we had ever eaten for me and my family, We are planning to return to BA and will stay here again!

We tried to change them on Sunday but lots of shops were closed. So we walk down to the right place and walk around until we find a guy saying he does money exchange. Most places we've been to the money exchanges are little counters in a shop, or a guy on the street holding a big wad of cash. Here it's just ...
... It was morning and we needed coffee but we had no pesos. We did NOT want to withdraw any more pesos at the bad exchange rate. Then I remembered - at the airport Nick withdrew money and I kept a pretty 100.
Yesssssss. Let's go get coffee. Lattente again. 71 pesos again. Tendria un peso? No. Coins are still rare despite buses no longer accepting cash. Why?
The paper money in circulation is in such ****** condition. But you go to the atm ...
Having braved cold weather for at least two weeks, it was a welcome relief to land in the warmer climate Buenos Aires offered and be able to once again wander around in shorts and t-shirt. Originally the plan was to remain in BA for Adam's birthday and Christmas and then head into the heart of Uruguay for a few days break on a Uruguayan working estancia. However given: a) we'd already done more riding than planned by this point on the trip b) ...
