Day 4 – The Sun is Shining in Argentina

We are having such a beautiful stay here in Buenos Aires.   We are not as busy as we had expected to be.  After having some severe jet lag we decided to take it easy for the first days.  After all, we are travelling for 6 weeks.   Today we headed out for a late brekky at the El Callao cafe next door to our apartment block.  And then we jumped in a cab to head over to the glam Alto Palermo shopping mall.   They had some really cool stuff there.

But it was in the afternoon when we returned to the Recoleta area that we found a great little arcade on Santa Fe called “Bond Street”.   This is where a lot of arty types operate tiny stores showing off their own designed t-shirts, trainers and all sorts of accessories alongside a tonne of tattoo stores.   Frank bought a few things while I tried to peer around corners at people getting amazing tattoos inked into their skin.

Dinner was a takeaway from the La Farola restaurant where huge serves of heavy food is always on offer.   We bought 2 pasta dishes.  The pasta is hand made fresh and the sauce was so delicious!   It was enough to feed a family for just 55 pesos (about 11 dollars).

Apart from the great food the thing that will keep me coming back to Argentina is a the beautiful people.   They are so friendly and accommodating…   especially for someone who does not speak Spanish.   Tomorrow we are going on a walking tour around Buenos Aires.
