Buenos Aires is all coming as one big chunk in this blog because that is how it has been for me!! I flew into BA on a Friday morning and had my lovely cousin Phil waiting for me. We spent an amazing week getting to know the city abit and doing some more Spanish lessons before the gorgeous Alex and Jay flew in from Brighton ENGLAND!! We went straight to our amazingly beautiful apartment in a very cool part of town called Palermo, which is full of bars, restaurants and clothes boutiques! We were happy. We had the flat for 2 full weeks! I hung my clothes on hangers. After 8 months living out of a bag, no more need be said about that!!
Whilst the boys were here we all made the 18 hour bus journey to Iguazu Falls. We were really unlucky and managed to experience one of the nine days of rainfull it faces per year! We got wet, but we also got wet under the waterfall, so we survived!! There was a slight tricky moment on another boat when it really started to chuck down and Jays shoe filled completely with water!! We got through it though! We spent another full day on the Brazilian side which was stunning, and alot drier! The falls really are spectacular, and being there just makes you feel great. A real shame about the weather, but the company was so good it didn´t matter!
The boys were massively adventurous when they were here, whereas for the first week I think Phil and I were just too amazed not to be sleeping in dorm beds that we didn´t do as much leaving the flat! We had the brilliant Charlie out here, who had all the partying we could ever ask for lined up, so we justhad to fill the gaps really.
First things first, seeing we had Jay with us, we headed straight to the Zoo, which was actually one of the best Zoos I have been to. You even get to feed the animals. Had an amazing day there, and we also satisfied Jay´s need for the animal world by going to an amazing bird sanctury in Brazil. It was spectacular, and bloody noisy with about 100 parrots amongst other things. We visited the MALBA Museum of Art Latin America Buenos Aires, ad the Evita museum, and found her grave. The Recoletta Cemetary is one of the oddest places I have ever been. The graves or tombs are almost the size of small bungalows (slight exageration) and its like walking around a city of the dead! Really crazy stuff!
