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!

... to the streets and the buildings here to create some magnificent work. You will note that I am not talking about tagging, or the scribbled “Juan was here…” type notes you see left on buildings (although there is plenty of that here). The art pieces here are often commissioned and ignored by police, so there is a lot of true artwork on buildings. The tour also ...
We woke this morning to pouring rain. Of course our plan had been to take one of the free walking tours of the city. After much debate and indecision (as only Bre and I can do), we joined the walking tour following our delicious egg Mcmuffin breakfast (guilty of caving to their expediency and low cost). The rain worked in our favour as our group was just us and a small, friendly group from Holland. Vicky, our Porteña tour guide, quit her job working in ...
... cost of living here, unlike Brazil where it is significantly more expensive. I had a double cheeseburger with flashbacks of how many of these I had back in the US. As usual the sense of self loathing quickly fell over me before I'd even finished.
From here we walked back to the presidential palace to take a look around the inside. It is only open on the weekends and bank holidays so this seemed like an opportune time. We had to take ...
