Today we said goodbye to the Experian colleagues to spend a couple more days on our own in BA. We walked around from our new hotel at downtown Avenida Corrientes near Retiro to see the Obelisco at the 20-lanes wide Avenido 9 de Julio, Teatro Colon, Plaza San Martin and the shopping streets around Calle de Florida.
