After spending a few hours at "La Boca" ...
Luckily found a suitable bookshop open today and could start
planning my next country first over a good coffee, then over a good tenderloin
with 2 types of chimmichurri and then a good pint of dunkelweissen – wanted to
enjoy my last day or 2 in Argentina doing things I’d deferred previously. Given
my lack of funds forewent tangos shows and polo.
... season (imagine Man U sacking Fergie), so we were a bit concerned about the notoriously crazy fans and the likelihood of them winning...There was a lovely Aussie couple coming along to the match and a few others and we were super excited having spent a little more than our budget allowed on good seats. The bus journey over to the Boca neighbourhood was mental - traffic and people in blue and yellow everywhere! Only members of Boca Juniors can get into the stadium (no away ...
