Our second day we did a bit more shopping, which was a bit of a drama, I had tried on a pair of jeans the day before and fell in love with them but decided they were too tight and they didn't have a bigger size, anyway I went back and changed my mind, jeans after 7 months without them - happiness
We also visited an area called San Telmo, a little bit more arty and full of street side cafes, bars and little antique shops selling anything you could possibly want, especially if what you want is a Che Guevara picture! Our meals out have been as good as the advertising, the steaks are huge and delicious, the red wine is divine and the pasta is also fantastic. All in all we have really enjoyed Buenos Aires (and Argentina in general), it just has a really nice atmosphere, quite European but Latino at the same time.
We are going to take a short side trip to Uruguay, which is just a short hop by boat from Buenos Aires, for a few days before heading back to Buenos Aires and continuing our journey south - Tierre del Fuego is feeling close now!
