Excellent beautiful guesthouse. Has cat to greet you at the door. The owners and manager are very welcoming and super friendly. Nice easy place to stay at and right in the centre of everything.

... and surprisingly cheap. We were not in a hurry to get back to the dorm. To make matters worse the whole night was interrupted by drunk young travelers stumbling back from a night out. The breakfast the next morning was redeeming, and dashed off to a walking tour of the city. Buenos aires has so much to offer and it is truly best seen on foot, we meandered through suburbs listening to our guides anecdotes, he was a lawyer, who was tired of firm life and decided ...
... that is "Peron."
Eva Peron's body was stolen. It was another 15 years before it was found again.
Within those years, the body was abused terribly. The first man who took it, placed her in the attic. He had a love-hate relationship with Evita's remains. Necrophilia included. Then the body was found and was "saved" but then got moved from house to house. None of the Peron supporters knew exactly where it was -- like a cat-and-mouse.
... mausoleums, row after row set up like a small village - but housing the dead of the wealthy families of BA. It was eerie. Spent an hour there. Couldn't find Evita's resting place. Don't cry for us though... Not far away we did find the National Museum. Lots of old paintings and sculptures dating from the 11th C and plenty of contemporary artwork. Highlights included some Rodins and Rubens. I was dead in the water ...
... offices. It was really nice area after the walk which was passing very busy streets.
Have breakfast in one of the cafes, good value at less than £4 each. We are finding the food and drink very reasonable so the cost will be interesting once we leave the main City.
The hottest day so far, we are careful in the sun after getting a little singed yesterday.
