I´ve been in Buenos Aeries for about 5 days now and head off to Patagonia later tonight (on a 20 hour overnight bus!)
I got down here for new years´ (after enduring a 5 hour delay at the airport) which I mainly spent drinking in the hostel. We did go outside for midnight and got chatting to a local family for a bit whilst watching all the fireworks. They also gave us some cake and (I think) cider.
Buenos Aeries is a great city to chill out in and people watch. There are lots of different neighbourhoods to explore - from posh Recoletta to working class La Boca. Our hostel did a tour around La Boca and we got to go on a tour of La Boca´s stadium. We stopped in a touristy restraunt for lunch and I had a massive steak with red wine and Tango dancing - very Argentinean.
Yesterday I got to see the new James Bond film in the cinema which I thought was excellent.
Am going to look at a few more things now before my bus.
