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!

Naturally we stop for a coffee and crossiant taking in the amazing atmosphere with vendors setting up their stalls for the day ( everything in Buenos Aires doesn't really ...
... to scan hand luggage, immigration, and passport control, we finally make it on board, you're not allowed to bring spirits on board but when our cases are delivered, they still have the two bottles of gin in them. We no longer have passports as they are kept for us until the end of the trip, I believe it's so the crew can do all the necessary as we enter and leave each country. Ship is really nice, spend an hour or so having a good nose around and a beer in the 'Crows ...
We have been in Buenos Aires for 2 days now. It has been an adjustment for sure, not knowing much spanish being the predominant difficulty. However, we will soon (relative) rectify this problem... spanish school starts tomorrow AM and we are excited! We went to a play last night with Bill and Mony (a contact we had before we came ...
