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 arrived in Buenos Aires after a fourteen hour bus ride feeling surprisingly rested, refreshed and ready to explore this unique city. Though taxis were lined up at the bus terminal waiting for passengers, not one of them would drive with more than four passengers, so after failing to convince several taxis that we …
I got up today at the hostel after a great night’s sleep on solid ground for the first time in a while. I spent most of the morning just trying to get stuff organized from the Antarctica trip, and get some blogs uploaded, since I haven’t had internet in the last ten days. The only problem is that I took so many pictures while I was down there, that it’s taking me forever to look through ...
... staying in, showered and relaxed.
We knew we wanted to go out to dinner, but Argentine style! haha we waited until about 10 PM before we headed to Puerto Madero (Madero Port). We took a cab (which is totally safe here by the way) and got there for about $4. After walking up and down the port looking at menu's, we decided to eat at "Happening" which we later found out was one of the top restaurants there. I ordered a water, glass of wine, 'Brochotte de Lomo' and french fries. ...
... the most powerful torrential rain you can imagine started pelting. We watched some totally gormless tourists get soaked by a car and spent most of the stop avoiding the river puddles surrounding us! Next was a boat-ride along the El Tigre Delta (yep, another bloody boat) which was made much better by the complimentary alfajore but not the battery acid coffee. El Tigre has thousands of islands which are mostly second homes for people from BA. It's a bit like the Hamptons except ...
... They bus you to and from the stadium, and the guides accompany you at all times. We had seats in the steep upper tier and the cacophony of noise as the home team took to the pitch blew me away. These were some seriously passionate fans and the main reason I had wanted to attend a game in person. Boca won 4-2, but to be honest it was difficult to concentrate on the football as we were engulfed by the nonstop music and singing. The catchy tunes had us singing along ...
