We finish up with a tasty burger with Matthew and Thomas, followed by some beers on the hostel rooftop, before taking our transfer to the airport. How sad! We arrive early, which is just as well as the flight has been moved to 40 minutes ...
... is. Instead of 8:1, you could get a better rate on the streets. Argentina, because of the crashing economy, are desperate for dollars, so they are willing to give more pesos as a result. The best I got was 10.5:1 but 2 months earlier, Jose my rio friend, managed to get 13:1. Lucky him!
Then La Boca. Wow! So colourful. So artistic. You can only really walk the tourist trap as the area is essentially a favela! But we took it all in, walked around ...
