TravelPod Member ReviewsGiorgio's House Buenos Aires
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!

... leaning backwards when dancing the tango...we couldn't see the resemblance! Afterwards we walked along to the San Telmo area to grab a coffee, an area which is the oldest in the city, and found a great characterful place in Plaza Dorrego. Our next stop on our own little tour was the La Boca area to see the colouful houses and shops. This was certainly a much smaller area than we were expecting but nevertheless it was nice to see and experience, regardless of the people trying ...
... and so set off on a Christmas bike ride. We had a great day cycling around the ghost town of BA. We arrived at a park where it appeared everyone had had the same idea and sat and ate our picnic. Mine included a banana sandwich! Nearly as good as Christmas dinner....! We didn't get back until 10pm, we really made the most of the day! It was definently a very different Christmas, but I had a lovely time with Frankie and Hannah and it was a great alternative to an English ...
... rain comes down. Thursday 18th sep Got our (booked in advance) 6hr bus to São Paulo at 9.40am so arrived in São Paulo 3.30pm ish. It was another nice coach with reclining seats and leg rests so it was a pleasant journey and seemed to go pretty quickly. Learned from last time and booked our coach to Foz do Iguazu in advance before we left Tiête coach station. Got directions in the coach station to the area where our hostel was (Plaça da Republica). We were to get ...
