Returned at 4:30pm Dinner at Parilla restaurant - Patagonian lamb for two with chargrilled vegetables, stout and 'wet' Apple pie and ice cream - ...
... out of our control. But frustrating to say the least.
We settled in for the unplanned short stay in Buenos Aires, making the most of our extra time in the big city with a stroll around town and another delicious meal.
Once morning came we reflected in laughter at the the past days events, and opted to start the day on a positive note courtesy of a delicious included breakfast from the hotel. We made our way to the airport where ...
