Today I went into Recoleta cemetary and saw some of the most amazing graves/crypts ever (not that I hang about cemeterites often!). Evita's one had the most flowers but is far from the biggest or fanciest - some of them are unbelievable. Occasionally though there was one with a broken door or a glass display so you could see the coffins which was a bit unsettling. I think I'll go back on one of the days when there is a tour in English to get a bit more info. After I went and met one of the girls from my course at the school and had lunch with her I continued my Evita theme and went down to the Casa Rosada for a tour. The guides all spoke Spanish so I didn't understand much of what was being said but it was nice to have a look around - it's very grand inside. Maybe I'll go back when I can understand more!
Tomorrow I'm going to go and pick up some supplies for my course then on Sunday there's a market at San Telmo so I think I'll go for a look there. Mum, you'd love it here - there's markets everywhere and on most days of the week too!
