A potted history of Buenos Aires

A travel blog entry by bobandtracie


So everyone remembers Evita, right? You know, the one played by Madonna in the musical, and that famous balcony scene (don't cry for me Argentina, blah blah)... That balcony is on the Casa Rosa, the presidential palace on the site of the original fort at the heart of Buenos Aires when it was founded in 1536. Our hostel was not far from there in the …

Matadors and markets

A travel blog entry by nevilledonna


Our final day in Buenos Aires has been a bit of an adventure to two completely different types of markets. As it was Sunday, there was no point in rising early which was quite good after a couple of very late nights. About 10.30 we set off to the Matadora fair, which is out at the cattle market we visited earlier in the week. We took the subte, or …

Dead centre of town

A travel blog entry by nevilledonna

Today we tried to find a bargain at the outlet shops at Villa Crespo, but we were a little worried as we were getting low on cash and couldn't seem to find a bank open. We realised later that what you do is swipe your card which gains you admission to the foyer where the ATM machines are. I noticed in the taxi it was 26 degrees outside so no wonder …

Gauchos and fine dining

A travel blog entry by nevilledonna


A delightful evening was spent at Vinotango, which is a small wine shop just down the road from where we are staying. On Thursday nights, and by invitation, the owner and his mother hold wine tastings with the added twist of singing performances. A sommelier came to explain his wines, and we tasted a torrentes which we found very drinkable. We had …

La Boca, icecream and antiques

A travel blog entry by nevilledonna


Had to tick a few tourist hot spots off the list today. This morning we walked a few blocks down to the river where the area around some old navy docks is being transformed a la the viaduct in Auckland. Lots of trendy restaurants and the first evenly paved area we have seen on the promenade around it. Bridges span each dock area and one bridge is …

    This classic San Telmo pad from the 1920s was quite special. It truly felt like someones home(it had been the owners childhood home) with beautiful high ceilings, original tile work and lovely light.David, the Columbian manager was very helpful in advising me on places to explore the city and also in introducing me to Campari, lime and Sprite while chatting around the kitchen table. Until 3am. Perfect location! San Telmo has the most soul of the BA barrios, in my opinion. The oldest barrio in BA!
