Hi Everyone,

Arrived back to Buenos Aires on Thursday afternoon. Had booked a few more days in the hotel we stayed in the previous week because they were so nice there. Got to our room and it was quite noisy because of the air conditioning unit so we asked to be moved. Two minutes later the porters were up to collect our stuff and brought us to a suite, we thought there must be some mistake but reception said they had upgraded us and we could stay in the suite for the remainder of our stay. We feel like rockstars, have a lounge, dining area, bedroom, 2 bathrooms, 2 TVīs and a jacuzzi for the price of a bad B&B in Dublin!

On Friday we spent the day wandering around the city again and ended up in the same bar as the previous Friday - needless to say Saturday was a blur again! On Sunday we headed to the San Telmo neighbourhood for the antiques market. The area is really artsy with lots of painters and craftsmen living and working here. There are cobblestone streets and low rise old buildings. Really nice atmosphere with tango dancers on the streets and artists selling their paintings. We took a taxi down to La Boca, one of the most famous neighbourhoods to look at the streets of multi-coloured houses and to visit the Boca Juniors stadium (Maradonaīs club). We went on a tour of the stadium and visited the museum which was really cool.

Ended the day by going to the cinema to see Superman Regressa! - Rubbish!

Love Lisa and Paul x
