... League football. That's three ticks. We then went to dinner like portenos, heading out after 9.00 pm. We hit the Gran Parilla a la Plata. Hyped on the travel sites, this place was not a patch on last night's neighbourhood parilla. We over-ordered and wasted a lot of food. But in essence it just wasn't that good - the steaks were big but we're not well cooked, and were not as nice as cuts of meat. Still it was fun ...

I did get a soy latte but the soy was sweetened ...
... currently ongoing services to see a monument to the great liberator San Martín and pictures of the Pope who, for the first time, is Argentine. We escape the church un-smited and move on to the Casa de Gobierno , the pink government building that looks just like the set where Eva Perón addresses her crowd in the show Evita, which we all saw as a family before we left. Graffiti surrounds the Casa Rosada and we start to feel the people ...
