But also, there were so many people I would be leaving and wanted to spend time with them before I left. In doing so, I ended up leaving the hostel around 7:30 I think. I originally hoped to be in transit at 6:30 pm. This was all for a 9:52 pm flight. The taxi we called came a lot later than I expected. I got to the bus station a little before 8:00 and the bus arrived at the airport at 8:50 pm. I ran for the checkout and breezed through departure tax, immigration and security. I even had time to go through duty free actually. My plane was actually boarding, but I decided to do duty free. Those prices were too good to pass up. And the boarding process involved yet another security check so it was worth going through duty free. I got on the plane with time to spare, but it was very anxiety provoking.
I was pretty sad to leave Buenos Aires. I wanted to have more vacation time but I really loved Buenos Aires and there was still so much more to explore. Pretty much a lot of the long term travellers I met were using BA as their homebase to travel around the region. Everyone I met couldn't say a bad thing about BA and no one I knew ever stayed fewer days than they intended. In fact most stay much much longer than they thought they would. I spent about 1/3 of my journey there and could've easily spent longer. I definitely enjoyed the rest of the places I went to as well, but Buenos Aires just has everything.
Maybe I'll go back someday and never come back.
