... Golden Decade of Buenos Aires.
Singers and dancers perform, with a good dinner beforehand. Some in the group loved it. I liked it for a while. But it's a little like RiverDance ... fun for 20 minutes, torture for two hours. I would rather have gone to a real night club and watch those with a passion for the tango dance the night away.
We returned to the hotel at 12:30 and by the time I edited my photos for the day, I was too tired to write and file my ...

After the bus ride, we got on the tourist train that runs up the coast - follows the river - to Tigre. It was about another 1/2 hour or ...
... drinks. Turns out two friends of hers were at the Spanish table that evening and so the 7 of us walked around looking for a bar. We eventually found one but, unlike Argentines, we called it an evening before the sun came up and headed back to our apartment.
